TORONTO – Neither Justin Bieber nor his fans were in a Toronto court Monday morning for a routine hearing in the pop star’s assault case.
Lawyers said they were in ongoing discussions and decided to re-appear in court Sept. 8.
Bieber’s lawyer has previously said the singer isn’t expected at any of the court sessions until a trial date, which likely won’t be set until the fall.
But that hasn’t always deterred fans — about two dozen showed up at an earlier hearing, hoping to see the Canadian singer.
Police allege Bieber hit a limousine driver several times in the back of the head after he and five others were picked up by a limo in Toronto in the early hours of Dec. 30.
Bieber turned himself in to Toronto police in January to face the charge, drawing a massive crowd of journalists and screaming fans.
