According to, an Ann Arbor-based judge set a final settlement date for July 6 and a trial date of July 10.

Lewis’ attorney, Ann Arbor-based John Shea, told Judge Elizabeth Hines that they have not been able to reach a resolution with the prosecution as far as a plea deal goes and requested the trial.

Hines set a final settlement date of July 6 and a trial date of July 10. Jury selection would being on that date. The actual trial would begin either later in the day, or on July 11 depending on how long jury selection takes, Hines said.

Shea told Hines that Lewis has adhered to all the conditions probation, including no contact with the woman who accused Lewis of assaulting her.
