Chris Brown wants his case dismissed; Rihanna gets $1 million in jewelry back



Tbd-chrisbrown043009 Here's something that makes perfect sense: Chris Brown's attorney Mark Geragos said Wednesday he intends to file a motion to dismiss the case because of police leaks in the investigation, most likely that horrible photo of an apparently battered and bruised Rihanna, People says.

Gee, whatever could the reason be? Could it possibly be that plastering that image all over the country will make it hard for Chris to get a fair shake at trial? Why would a bloody photo of an alleged domestic violence victim sway a juror's opinion?

LA Superior Court Judge Patricia Schnegg granted a delay in the case, setting a hearing for May 28 (that's a popular date today).

Meanwhile, Rihanna's attorney Donald Etra finally won the right to retrieve $1 million in jewelry she was wearing that night. The jewels had been taken into evidence, which caused a sticky situation, since they were loaners. Would you really want them back after that?
