Nick Kyrgios’ lawyers granted more time to address alleged assault case

·

The ACT magistrates court has granted lawyers for tennis star, Nick Kyrgios, a six-week adjournment to address a charge of alleged assault, ABC News has reported.

Kyrgios’ lawyer, Michael Kukulies-Smith, asked the case’s magistrate, Louise Taylor, today to adjourn the case to November 25 – a time to accommodate Kyrgios, who was not often in Canberra.

Mr Kukulies-Smith also said he would make an application on that date.

“It’s an application… which is one which is capable of resolving the matter,” the lawyer said without going into much detail.

But Magistrate Taylor said she was reluctant to grant the date, and that she was not certain of why there was the secrecy.

Kyrgios had been summonsed to face a charge of assaulting his former girlfriend (pictured, left).

She also told the court in the ordinary course of events she would be asking Mr Kukulies-Smith to indicate pleas of guilty or not guilty for his client.

Magistrate Taylor granted a six-week adjournment, with the case set to be back on October 4.

The Australian Capital Territory police confirmed in July that Kyrgios had been summonsed to face a charge of assaulting his former girlfriend. It relates to an incident in Canberra last December.

Kyrgios is currently in New York, preparing for the US Open, and did not appear in court today for the first mention of the case.
