R&B singer Chris Brown's next court appearance in Washington is now scheduled for Jan. 8.
A D.C. Superior Court judge granted the new date Monday. Brown's attorneys successfully argued that he should not be forced to leave anger management rehabilitation in Los Angeles to travel to Washington for Monday's hearing.
