A Friday pretrial hearing was reset to Sept. 27 in Victorville for Steven John Brooks II, 41, according to San Bernardino County Superior Court records.
Prosecutor Shannon Flaherty said Brooks has a new lawyer who sought time to become familiar with the case.
The attorney Sean O'Connor didn't immediately respond Friday to a message.
Brooks pleaded not guilty Aug. 6 to felony charges of evading and obstructing an officer and throwing a substance at a police vehicle, and a misdemeanor charge of harming a police animal. He could face more than five years in prison if he's convicted of all charges.
He is being held on $100,000 bail at the San Bernardino County jail in San Bernardino.
Brooks was a second-term Democrat from North Las Vegas when he became the first state lawmaker ever expelled from the Nevada Legislature on March 28. Colleagues called him a security threat.
Brooks was arrested hours later after allegedly leading police on an 80-mph chase on Interstate 15 from Barstow to Victorville, fighting with officers trying to subdue him at gunpoint, and attacking a police dog with a wrench.
