Both the defense and prosecutors agreed to move the trial date to Sept. 6 as prosecutors said they were “not yet ready,” with the attorneys in the process of obtaining discovery.
Majors’ attorneys have repeatedly and vehemently denied the charges and instead argued that his accuser was the aggressor.
On Twitter reporter Dennis Byron said the real issue is that the accuser has fled the country.

In an emailed statement delivered minutes after the last hearing, Chaudhry Jonathon’s lawyer, doubled down, and claimed the actor was the victim of abuse during his relationship, adding that they are seeking the arrest of the accuser.
“Bravely, Jonathan Majors laid bare to the NYPD the relentless, alcohol-fueled abuse he suffered at the hands of [accuser], an enduring nightmare in their relationship,” the statement read. “Now, as soon as Jabbari sets foot back in New York, the NYPD stands ready to arrest her.”
Since his arrest, Majors has been dropped from multiple projects, and the actor’s public relations team and management have distanced themselves.
