Chris Brown's New Mystery Court Hearing

3/12/2009 5:55 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Chris Brown, RihannaChris Brown's lawyer, Mark Geragos, has requested an unscheduled hearing even before Brown's arraignment in the alleged beating of Rihanna -- and it has to do with Rihanna testifying in the case -- or not testifying!

We've learned the case has been officially moved to L.A. County Superior Court Judge Patricia Schnegg. She's the judge who signed the search warrant in the case.

The hearing is set for March 23. It will take place in Judge Schnegg's chambers. Prosecutors will join Geragos but Chris Brown will not be present.

Geragos is the one who requested the meeting. We know it involves Rihanna's possible testimony in the case. Will Geragos ask the judge to block prosecutors from calling Rihanna or limiting her testimony? We don't know for sure.

We do know the meeting has nothing to do with a plea bargain.

The arraignment is still set for April 6.

Of course she won't testify. She only said that thinking the public would believe it. She is a c**t.

If they actually got married, maybe it's because you can't compel a spouse to testify against a spouse.

All I can say is that I just want it all over and for these two to just live their life... Hay Hay Hay! And maybe just quietly sepporate and go be with other people they don't have to fight with. Because I do believe if all you and your someone special do is fight... then you arent made for eachother and then the poison of a bad relationship seeps in and HERE WE ARE!! What a shame!! I still love their music though!

This idiot is going to get away with it and there is nobody else to blame but dumbass Rihanna. Getting back with him is the worst thing she could do and I don't want to hear well they are in love. Horse crap! They will be in love until the next smackdown. He beat her ass realy bad and he should pay the consequences. Next time it happens TMZ shouldn't even report about it cause she asked for it.

I lived three days labor, so you're full of it!    

They're MARRIED! People don't have to testify against their spouse, similar to pleading the 5th. If she married him in Miami, as the rumor suggests, then she won't have to testify. But of course she doesn't want anyone knowing they're married, b/c that means her career is going to suffer.

IF THEY GET MARRIED SHE WON'T HAVE TO TESTIFY AND SHE'S ABOUT THAT STUPID. IF SHE DOES TESTIFY SHE CAN PROBABLY EXPECT ANOTHER BEAT DOWN BY HIS SORRY ASS.

This little punk can't even be a man and take his punishment. Since it's very obvious that she's completely ignorant, she probably married him just so she wouldn't have to testify. Pathetic people! My 2 year old son is more of a man than Chris Brown could ever hope to be.
