Chris Brown is looking to get the restraining order against him lifted. It's been in place since he pummeled Rihanna senseless prior to the 2009 Grammys.
His lawyer, Mark Geragos, told Judge Patricia Schnegg that Brown did 52 weeks of domestic violence counseling and requested that the order be lifted.
“It makes it difficult at award shows and such,” Geragos said.
GOOD DAYS: Now other guys take and leak Rihanna topless pics. Shame.
Judge Schnegg did not immediately grant his request but did suggest a modification of it, pending the approval of Rihanna’s attorney, David Etra.
The decision to modify the restraining order will be filed in court at a later date. The judge did praise Brown again for his commitment, however.
In fact, she was so pleased, she told Brown that he can come in “next time you’re in town” instead of scheduling a future progress report hearing.
To date, Brown has done 581 hours of community labor and domestic violence counseling. Aside from the occasional Raz B feud, he's been great.
He remains on probation through mid-2014.
