Both sides in a domestic dispute case involving Seattle Seahawks linebacker Leroy Hill agreed to a continuance of the trial this morning granted by Issaquah Municipal Court Judge N. Scott Stewart, according to court administrator Lynne Jacobs.

No new trial date has been set, but the two sides agreed to a status conference on Aug. 20 if no settlement is reached by then.

Hill faces a misdemeanor charge of assault for his role in an incident that took place on April 10th regarding a domestic dispute that allegedly occurred between the Seattle Seahawks’ linebacker and his live-in girlfriend at his Issaquah home in April.

Lynn Moberly, the prosecutor for the city, has been unable to get the main witnesses in the case to cooperate.

Hill is expected to participate in Seahawks’ training camp beginning on Saturday

    Well, this thing is all but dismissed. Leroy will be cutting a check, the league will levy a suspension and that will be that.

    Damn it, Looks like the Issaquah Detective needs to justify all the time he’s spent chasing the GF around ( in a misdemeanor case no less) to his Chief……

    Really? Seriously? it should come as no suprise that the woman doesnt want to cooperate and in no way shape or form does that indicate that he has intimidated or tampered with her “beyond a reasonable doubt”

    I’m sure however that the viaolation of the no contact order will be a slam dunk for them after the cell phone records come in from Sprint….

    But why? Really issaquah pd ? Talk about grabbing the lowhanging fruit!

    Whatever evidence they have has not been made public, but that shouldn’t be read as there’s nothing there. I find these charges as anything but picking low hanging fruit. We’ll see how it plays out, but giving Hill the benefit of the doubt at this point is something I’m not prepared to do. As I stated in another thread, I hope for all parties, there is nothing to any of this.
