Chris Brown isn't getting any breaks just yet.

His attorney's efforts to get the singer's case thrown out, due to the leak of those awful photos of a beaten Rihanna, have fallen flat.

Mark Geragos' request to have Chris' upcoming hearing postponed has been denied -- which is bad news for Chris, as this hearing will be the one that decides if this case goes to trial.

And Rihanna has been subpoenaed.

"Rihanna was served at my office by L.A. DA investigators," her attorney told People.com. "If the preliminary hearing indeed goes forward, she is now legally required to be there, she will be there, and will answer all questions truthfully."

The court date is set for June 22 -- and it's going to be a doozy.

"Rihanna's testimony can make or break the case," L.A. criminal defense attorney Jeffery Rubenstein told People. "Her willingness to testify and be truthful about what happened is a step closer to convicting Brown. On the other hand, if prosecutors fail to present a case, Geragos can seek to dismiss or reduce the charges on the spot."
