What does a docket entry of setting bench trial mean in a divorce case? Posted on February 15, 2011

On Casenet, the docket entry says "Case set for trial on (DATE)". The next docket entry says "Setting-Bench Trial" for the same date. It is for a divorce. My attorney is out of town, and I am hoping to find out something now. Will the lawyers present/argue the case? A friend told me it is just a hearing to schedule a different court date but that seems a little silly to me. It has been 7 months since I filed, and I am hoping this means it is almost over. Thank you.
