The Attorney-General has been listed as the defendant. A pre-trial conference has been fixed on Sept 25.

Shouldn't it be fixed for instead?

Thanks.

Personally, I would say 'scheduled for' or 'arranged for'.
So, with 'fixed', I would naturally choose "fixed for".

I suppose the writer's 'logic' was something like this:
A pre-trial conference has been fixed (to occur) on Sept 25.
