Jeff Hardy’s scheduled pre-trial hearing for his DUI-related charges in Florida on Thursday didn’t take place as scheduled.

According to court documents obtained by, his defense team filed for a continuance, with the pre-trial hearing now scheduled for December 21. The docs note that Hardy is required to appear before the court for the hearing. Hardy filed a written plea of not guilty with the court on June 28.

Hardy's attorneys previously waived his right to a speedy trial and requested a hearing originally scheduled for this past July be pushed back 60 days to assist in his defense. In October, the hearing was delayed following a last-minute motion from his attorney as they provided extensive mitigation materials to the counsel for the State and for both sides to negotiate a potential pretrial resolution.

If this resolution can be reached, then it would prevent a trial, and Hardy would make a plea agreement.
