Chris Brown’s lawyer, Mark Geragos, told TMZ on Wednesday that he wants the case against his client dismissed because of leaks.
“Leaks can form the basis for a motion to dismiss the case in regard to outrageous governmental misconduct,” Geragos told TMZ outside a Los Angeles courtroom.
A new hearing has been scheduled for May 28. Brown currently faces two felony charges on assault and criminal threats.
