Absolute, final, not admitting of question or appeal. A peremptory trial date may be established by the court on its own motion or at the request of a party to insure timely disposition of the case. In selection of a jury each side has a right to a fixed number of PEREMPTORY CHALLENGES to the seating of potential jurors, which means that counsel may reject a certain number of potential jurors for any reason, or for no reason.

See challenge [PEREMPTORY CHALLENGE]; peremptory writ.
