Gallagher has requested to give a victim impact statement in person when Daniel Sullivan, who pleaded guilty to assault causing bodily harm back in November of 2008, is sentenced.
Sullivan's lawyer, John Collins, argued against allowing Gallagher to speak in from of the court, stating, "Mr. Sullivan has had this unfortunate matter hanging like an albatross around his neck for a year and a half," and that Gallagher should not be allowed to "control the proceedings."
Sullivan was supposed to receive his sentence last week, but the judge in the case granted Gallagher's request and adjourned the court to arrange a date for him to appear.
The charge stems from an incident in 2008 when Oasis played a concert on Toronto Island. Sullivan, admittedly drunk at the time, managed to dodge a series of security measures, climb on stage and push Gallagher into a stage monitor as the guitarist played the chorus of the band's hit, '(What's the Story) Morning Glory?' Sullivan then made a move towards Gallagher's brother Liam, the band's singer, before being nabbed by security.
Noel Gallagher broke three ribs and Oasis were forced to cancel five tour dates.
Oasis has since disbanded, with Noel quitting after a heated argument moments before they were to take the stage in Paris back in August. Liam Gallagher recently said that, despite continuing on the with the band's remaining members, he would no longer use the Oasis name. Meanwhile, Noel has also moved on, recently announcing his first solo appearances, a pair of concerts in March at London's Royal Albert Hall to benefit the Teenage Cancer Trust.
