*For a lot of folks, the Chris Brown/Rihanna incident is still fresh in their minds even though it’s been 2 years since it happened on the eve of the Grammys in Los Angeles.
Since then, except for the recent stupid Twitter dust up with Raz-B, Chris has been a pretty good boy. For the record he has completed 581 hours of community service, a 52 week course on domestic violence and just as important, he’s back in the good graces of his fans.
Radaronline is reporting that Chris and his attorney, Mark Geragos, would like now is for the judge to lift the restraining order against the singer/dancer:
Chris Brown appeared in a Los Angeles courtroom Friday afternoon for a progress report in the Rihanna beating case where his attorney requested to remove the restraining order against his client, RadarOnline.com has learned.
The singer, along with his legal ace attorney Mark Geragos arrived to the courthouse in downtown Los Angeles and appeared calm and collected before the judge.
Geragos told Judge Patricia Schnegg that his client has completed his 52 week domestic violence counseling and requested she remove the existing restraining order against Brown.
“It makes it difficult at award shows and such,” Geragos said.
Judge Schnegg did not immediately grant his request but did suggest a modification with the approval of Rihanna’s attorney, David Etra.
The judge allowed Geragos a moment to call Etra during a brief recess but unfortunately for Brown, Etra wanted to speak with his Rihanna before agreeing to the modification.
The decision to modify the restraining order will be filed with the court at a later date.
So how will the judge lift the order? That’s the magic question. If you were the judge, how would you rule?
