Lawyers for singer Chris Brown are headed back to court in Washington.

Lawyers for singer Chris Brown are headed back to court in Washington, but the Grammy winner won't be there.

Brown's trial on a misdemeanor assault charge is currently set for April 17. On Monday, his lawyers and a government prosecutor will be in court for a motions hearing.

Brown's lawyers have asked a judge to dismiss the case, saying prosecutors misused the grand jury process to prepare for trial.

They also want certain statements Brown made suppressed.

A government prosecutor, meanwhile, is asking the judge to bar Brown from claiming self-defense or introducing evidence of mental health issues.

Brown and his bodyguard were arrested in Washington in October and are accused of punching a man outside a Washington hotel.

Brown's case will be heard by a judge, not a jury.
