Sir Rod Stewart and his son are set to stand trial over an alleged altercation at a hotel in Florida.
The Maggie May singer, 76, and his son Sean, 40, were charged with simple battery over an alleged incident involving a security guard on New Year’s Eve 2019.
The trial has now been set for September, although a court in Florida heard the case may still be resolved before then.
Security guard Jesse Dixon has alleged that Sir Rod and Sean assaulted him at the luxurious Breakers Palm Beach Hotel.
He says the singer punched him in the ribs during a row over access to a private party in a children’s area.
Sean, the star's son with his ex Alana Stewart, allegedly got “nose to nose” with Dixon.
The pair were charged in January 2020 and have both pleaded not guilty.
A hearing was held on Zoom on Friday (28 May) and Judge August Bonavita set a trial date for 14 September.
The prosecution had asked for a convenient date for the alleged victim, who does not live in the state.
However, Asa O’Neill, for the prosecution, said his negotiations with Guy Fronstin, the Stewarts’ lawyer, may bring a resolution to the case before trial.
Sir Rod and his son were not on Zoom for the hearing.
