Defence attorney Ben Gonek says 36th District Judge Kenneth King on Wednesday granted his request while Reed asks the Michigan Court of Appeals to overturn a circuit court's ruling for a trial.
Reed was playing for the Tigers last spring when a 45-year-old woman says she was drugged at a bar before being taken to a Detroit casino hotel on the eve of Opening Day. Reed insists the sex was consensual.
King dismissed the two third-degree criminal sexual conduct charges in August, but Wayne County Circuit Judge Michael Callahan reinstated the case after prosecutors appealed.
Prosecutors say they will file a motion to compel King to send Reed to trial.
