Druckenmiller, who now plays for the San Francisco 49-ers, is accused of raping a Tech student at a party in Blacksburg in March.
At today's hearing, Druckenmiller's attorneys argued for more access to witness statements-- saying prosecutors have been withholding information that could help clear their client.
But prosecutors argued they've been cooperative.
The judge did NOT make a decision today.
Instead-- he continued the matter after arguing between the two sides intensified.

Botulism toxin is best known as the germ responsible for deadly food poisoning.
But is also used to treat chronic pain and cosmetic surgery.
Botox as it is known medically is injected into the skin to partially paralyze the muscles in the face that cause wrinkles.
It was its cosmetic application that lead to the migraine discovery.
