Chris Brown's lawyer has petitioned a judge to block a settlement payment to a woman who alleged the singer assaulted her during a night out in California last year (Jun13).
Deanna Gines claimed she suffered torn ligaments in her right knee after the star pushed her to the ground at the Heat Ultra Lounge in Anaheim.
Police decided not to pursue the case, so Gines sued the singer and club owners over her alleged injuries.
Brown filed a countersuit, but the owners of the nightclub settled with Gines for $15,000 (£9,375).
However, the 24 year old's lawyer, Mark Geragos, is asking a judge to block the settlement because he feels it will unfairly affect their case and leave Brown solely responsible, according to Tmz.com.
Meanwhile, the Kiss Kiss hitmaker's on/off girlfriend Karrueche Tran has filed a declaration stating Brown never came in contact with Gines.
