Leroy Hill’s trial postponed until Aug. 20

Both sides in a domestic dispute case involving Seattle Seahawks linebacker Leroy Hill agreed to a continuance of the trial this morning granted by Issaquah Municipal Court Judge N. Scott Stewart, according to court administrator Lynne Jacobs.

No new trial date has been set, but the two sides agreed to a status conference on Aug. 20 if no settlement is reached by then.

Hill faces a misdemeanor charge of assault for his role in an incident that took place on April 10th regarding a domestic dispute that allegedly occurred between the Seattle Seahawks’ linebacker and his live-in girlfriend at his Issaquah home in April.

Lynn Moberly, the prosecutor for the city, has been unable to get the main witnesses in the case to cooperate.

Hill is expected to participate in Seahawks’ training camp beginning on Saturday
