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.

Dec 31, 2008.Club In Paris Rihanna told investigators that the first incident occurred in Europe three months ago. It was a verbal dispute, which led to RIHANNA SLAPPING Chris Brown. In self-defense, Chris put her up “against the wall” and told her to calm down.

It appears that they are meant for each other. Let them punch each other out and just do away with themselves. I have lost all respect for these two fools and will never buy a single thing relating to either one of them. Chris is a punk and Ri is an idiot.
Some people acutally get off onphysical violence. It's just too bad so many youth are exposed to this mess where the proper actions are not being taken.

This situation is so serious. Young people don't understand. I lost my niece by the hands of her husband back in 1989. He was abusive and repentent and eventually he killed her by stabbing her to death right in front of their 2 and 3 year old daughters. He's in prision, my niece is with my God, but her children suffered so much. They are adults now and are both herion junkies. PLease don't let it happen to you.

God Bless,

the truth shall set you free    

It probably has something to do with the "revelation" of the text message sent by Tina Davis. Maybe Geragos is going to plead insanity

i think yall should just leave Chris alone.....maybe tha b***h deserved it. I mean you should never put ur hands on a female, but what do u expect he was brought up around violence so it makes since that he should show that hurt eventually. If Rihanna likes it then i think everybody shoud drop it!!!!!!!! Cuz no matter what u say she still gone be with him.

My prediction: They're married. Geragos is no fool, and knows how to play this. You don't come out quickly and say they're married, but you know they are. You let her attorney say, "Of COUURSSSE she'll testify." You let a week pass, and then drop the bombshell to the judge. "Your Honor, my client is married to the defendant, and is not compelled to testify."

The beater gets probation and counseling, if anything, based on a weaker case. The end.

In CA domestic violence cases can (and should) be prosecuted even if the victim won't press charges or testify. What kind of man beats up his girlfriend? (or boyfriend?)) - someone who thinks it is his/her right (he does it because "he can"). If he gets away w/ his criminal behavior, he will just repeat that behavior w/ his next girlfriend. Obviously Miss R needs some serious counseling--love is not enough when "your guy" sends you to the hospital. She is not some poor woman w/ no resources, no home, etc. She needs to set an example for other women in her situation.
