Sulaimon Brown's trial on the traffic charge was supposed to be Monday in D.C. Superior Court, but it was rescheduled to March 7.

Brown was arrested in September for driving with a suspended license. His Maryland license was suspended because of an unpaid parking ticket.

Brown has accused Mayor Vincent Gray's aides of paying him and promising him a job during last year's campaign to disparage then-Mayor Adrian Fenty. Federal authorities are investigating those claims.
