Hope Solo’s court date is set for Nov. 4 in Kirkland, Wash., meaning it won’t interfere with the remainder of her NWSL season or World Cup qualifying.
Solo appeared in Kirkland Municipal court on Monday for a pre-trial hearing on two counts of domestic-violence assault. Her lawyer reportedly asked for a new court day to make motions to dismiss the charges against her and to exclude evidence, according to the Seattle Post-Intelligencer.
The NWSL championship game is August 31. World Cup qualifying takes place across four U.S. cities, from Oct. 15-26.
Attending the court appearance with Solo was her husband, ex-NFL player Jerramy Stevens.

Solo pleaded not guilty in June to two counts of fourth-degree domestic-violence assault following her arrest in mid-June. She allegedly assaulted her 42-year-old half-sister, Teresa Obert, as well as her 17-year-old nephew, Christian Obert.
Five days after the June 21 incident, Solo issued an apology on her Facebook page. Her lawyer, Todd Maybrown, said in June that Solo was the victim in the situation. The police report from the scene described Solo as “drunk and intoxicated.”
