Tory Lanez‘s lawyer is looking to push back the rapper’s upcoming trial date in the ongoing case with Megan Thee Stallion.

During a hearing on Thursday — at which Tory was a no-show — his lawyer requested that the start of the trial, set for September 14, be postponed, citing “potential conflicts” with another case in which Megan is involved.

Rolling Stone reporter Nancy Dillon provided the update on Twitter, adding the judge set another hearing to avoid making a “premature” decision. All parties are due back in court on August 12, when the judge will determine whether the conflicts have cleared up and the trial should be delayed.

Tory and Megan have been embroiled in a case regarding the shooting that injured her left foot. Megan claims Tory pulled the trigger, but he has maintained his innocence.
