MIAMI - A hearing is scheduled in a Miami courtroom for motions in a photographer's lawsuit against Justin Bieber and a bodyguard over an alleged assault.

Among the motions that could be considered at Tuesday's hearing is a request from the photographer's lawyer seeking a second deposition with the 20-year-old pop star.

Attorney Mark DiCowden says he was improperly prevented March 6 from asking Bieber about his on-again, off-again girlfriend, singer and actress Selena Gomez.

Another motion asks that punitive damages be permitted in the case.

Photographer Jeffrey Binion claims in the lawsuit that he was assaulted by Bieber bodyguard Hugh Hesney in June outside a Miami-area recording studio.

Bieber is facing unrelated DUI and other charges after his Jan. 23 arrest in Miami Beach. He has pleaded not guilty.
