TORONTO - Justin Bieber's Toronto assault case will return to court later this month.
A lawyer appeared on the pop star's behalf Monday for a routine appearance where the next date in the case was set for May 26.
Bieber's lawyer has said the singer isn't expected at any of the court sessions until a trial date, which likely won't be set until the fall.
Police allege the singer hit a limousine driver several times in the back of the head after he and five others were picked up by a limo in the early hours of Dec. 30.
Bieber turned himself in to Toronto police in January to face the charge, drawing a crowd of jostling journalists and deliriously screaming fans.
A crowd of eager teens hoping for a glance of their idol showed up for his first court date earlier this year, but all was quiet at Monday's appearance.
