“Stet” is a latin word meaning “let it stay.” In Maryland courts, the “stet docket” is an inactive docket, where cases go to die.

Cases put on the stet docket remain inactive, usually for a year, unless and until the State or the defendant moves to have the case re-activated.

After three (3) years, a case on the stet docket can be expunged, just like a nol pros. In effect, it is a delayed nol pros. The case is not dismissed immediately, but will be if the terms and conditions of the stet are satisfied.
