I have filed a lawsuit that will include a jury against a landlady. Now that the case is coming up shortly, the court has contacted me and?

it appears that they want me to report the expected length of the trial to them?

My questions are:

1. Is this typical for a jury trial? In the U.S. 2. And how am I (the plaintiff) supposed to know roughly how long the case will take? Answers such as ... get or talk to a lawyer - are not helpful.
