Sean Stewart

A date has been set to determine once and for all whether Sean Stewart's a tosser. Though a more informal verdict may already have been reached.

While a Los Angeles County Superior Court judge tossed out four felony charges against Rod's progeny earlier this month in connection to an April 2007 brick-tossing incident in the Hollywood Hills, a date has been set in his still-pending civil case stemming from the roadside melee.

Stewart, along with accusers Tobalus and Ericka Stein, are due to convene for a mandatory settlement conference, a last-ditch effort to prevent the case from going to trial, on Sept. 17, with the actual trial itself penciled in for Sept. 23.

While attorneys for the couple said both sides are eager to meet with a mediator, should no mutually agreeable resolution be made, the trial is expected to last five or six days.

The Steins' original lawsuit alleges assault, battery and intentional and negligent infliction of emotional distress against the rocking offspring, alleging they were driving past a party in the Hollywood Hills when an unprovoked Stewart and his entourage began "swinging their arms at, punching, throwing bricks and other items at, and striking the bodies of plaintiffs as well as striking the [truck]."

While no motive was given for the alleged attack, Stewart & Co. were reportedly denied entry to the house party and began throwing rocks and bricks at guests and, supposedly, indistinguishable passersby.

For his part, Stewart denies the rundown of events, claiming it was the Steins who provoked the situation and that he was simply acting in defense of himself and his friends.

Those poor rock star kids. Never could catch a break.
