Counsel representing Lisa McKinnon made a brief appearance Monday morning via telephone from their law offices in Vancouver.
The issue revolves around whether a preliminary hearing is needed. That has still not been resolved, but it has been confirmed by McKinnon's counsel that they will be seeking a judge and jury trial in BC Supreme Court.
The next court date for this matter will be on Jan. 22 -- again for trial confirmation.
McKinnon was arrested last year for her part in a dial-a-dope operation.
McKinnon is the daughter of Kelowna RCMP superintendent Bill McKinnon.
She is facing one charge of trafficking in a controlled substance and two charges of possession for the purpose of trafficking.
