"Court calendar" as a synonym[edit]

Consider adding "court calendar" as an informal synonym. I've struck upon this sentence when watching "Vera Drake", a 2004 movie: (hearing in court, defense barrister speaking) "Her solicitude for others has led her to commit one of the most serious offenses in the calendar". I did a search and came to guess that "the calendar" here is a shortening of "court calendar" (see Docket article at Wikipedia. Cheers, --CopperKettle (talk) 13:27, 29 June 2012 (UTC)

"Docket" as used by NTSB[edit]

NTSB (National Transportation Safety Board) uses the term "docket" in a way that is not any of the meanings given in the entry, e.g. in this typical text from a NTSB press release: "As part of its continuing investigation into the crash of a Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation G-IV that occurred in Bedford, Massachusetts, the National Transportation Safety Board has opened the accident docket, releasing about 800 pages of documents.". About 800 pages of documents is hardly a summary, an agenda, a schedule nor any other of the given meanings but rather some kind of repository. Some similarity to PACER, mentioned in the Docket (court) Wikipedia article exists, however. I'm leaving eventual update of the entry for someone with better knowledge of English language. --Sivullinen (talk) 20:31, 13 July 2015 (UTC)
