Here’s everything you need to know.
Tori Lanz’s attorney has asked to postpone the trial date in the Megan T. Stallion case.
According to Rolling Stone senior reporter Nancy Dillon, Torey Lanz was not present at the pretrial hearing. It was held on Thursday, July 28 at a Los Angeles courthouse.
However, during the proceedings, the rapper’s attorney, Shawn Hawley, requested that the original court date, which was set for September 14, be pushed back. He cited a “potential conflict” in an unrelated case allegedly involving Megan T. Stallion.
Dillon provided updates on Lanez’s hearing on Twitter. “Tori did not attend,” he wrote. His attorney asked him to postpone the Sept. 14 trial in the attack on Megan T. Stallion because of a possible conflict with an unrelated case he is handling. The judge called the execution of the trial “untimely”. Check back on 8/12 to see if the conflicts are resolved.
In other words, the judge neither allowed nor rejected the lawyer’s request.
Additionally, all parties must return to court on August 12, when a judge will determine whether the conflicts have been resolved. They will also decide whether the trial should be adjourned.
