Legal Question in Landlord & Tenant Law in Missouri

I filed a Petition for Rent and Possession with the Missouri Civil court. The court date was today. The renters (who haven't paid rent since January) requested "a trial", even though they admitted to the judge that they have not paid rent. Why would the judge grant them a trial?

This is common. The judge took what the defendnats said as "I owe something, but not what the plaintiff alleges." Thus he set it for trial next week.

Good luck
