Jonathan Majors, a popular actor from Marvel, received support from his girlfriend Meagan Good as he appeared in court for his highly anticipated trial for assault in New York City.

Mr. Majors has been charged with assaulting his ex-girlfriend, Grace Jabbari, while they were in a car in the city on March 25th, on their way to his apartment. He has entered a plea of not guilty for all the charges brought against him.

Ms. Jabbari alleges that he slapped her, shoved her into the car, twisted her arm, and grabbed and hurt her hand. The prosecution claims that she received medical treatment for minor injuries to her head and neck, including a cut on her ear.

Priya Chaudhry, the lawyer representing him, has called the supposed victim a dishonest person. In June, Mr. Majors made a formal accusation against her, claiming that she physically assaulted him and accused him of communicating with another woman.

Ms. Jabbari was arrested by officials of the New York City Police Department in October. However, the Manhattan District Attorney ultimately chose not to pursue charges against her. Despite this, Judge Michael Gaffey ruled that Mr. Majors’ lawyers could mention the arrest during the trial.

If Mr. Majors is convicted, he could potentially face a maximum sentence of one year in prison.

The process of selecting the jury began at 10am EST on Thursday, with the panel being chosen from a group of 40 individuals who were sworn in the previous day.


The lawyer for Jonathan Majors inquires of the potential jurors if they are able to assume the innocence of her client as the jury is being chosen.

According to the New York Post, attorney Priya Chaudhry, who is representing Jonathan Majors in the case, asked the jury members if they could guarantee that they will assume Mr. Majors’ innocence, despite his celebrity status.

The panel members indicated their willingness. The jury consists of six individuals, with an equal number of women and men, as well as two alternates. Four of the members are people from diverse ethnic backgrounds, but no African American men were included. The trial will commence with opening statements on Monday.
