Jonathan Majors Virtually Shows Up In Court As His Assault Case Is Postponed Once More

The criminal trial for Jonathan Majors in New York City has been postponed yet again. During a brief hearing on Wednesday, Majors, 33, virtually appeared before Judge Rachel S. Pauley in Manhattan Criminal Court. It was ruled that the actor’s new trial date will be decided on Friday, September 15.

According to Deadline, Majors’ attorneys said that the two parties needed to further address “deficiencies” in the discovery process even though Manhattan Assistant District Attorney Kelli Galaway informed the judge on Wednesday that the prosecution was prepared for trial.

According to the site, Majors only spoke during the hearing in order to respond to the judge’s inquiries. In court, the prosecution’s arguments were cited by a representative of the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office, who said that “the People answered ready for trial.” Requests for comment from Majors’ representatives were not immediately returned.

The trial for Majors’ domestic abuse case, which resulted from his arrest in New York City on March 25, was previously set for August 3. Last month, when the Creed III star and his girlfriend Meagan Good appeared in court, his lawyer Priya Chaudhry submitted a plea to adjourn the case, which the court agreed.

Following his arrest over six months ago, Majors is facing a number of misdemeanor assault and harassment counts. According to Deadline, if convicted, the Marvel star could face up to a year in prison.
