    The definition may differ depending on what context it is used for, or what state.

    Generally, a disposition means the final settlement of a matter. A non-trial disposition would therefore mean the final settlement of a matter that does not include a trial.

    For example, in Texas, it means:

    The grouping is intended to capture the time spent in dispositive hearings and related work where a trial is not required (i.e., settled cases, summary judgments that fully dispose of a case, etc.). The unifying factor of work in this group is that the matters will not be determined by a bench or jury trial. Most frequently hearings in this group will result in both findings and orders, but the group will also include hearings where adjudication and disposition have been bifurcated. Both “phases” of the disposition should be counted in this group in the time study.
