Majors is charged with four misdemeanor counts of harassment and assault after he was arrested following the alleged domestic violence incident.
Ms. Jabbari, who lives in London, initially said the majors had beaten and strangled her, but the strangulation charge was dropped.
He is now only accused of injuring her arm after police determined she suffered minor injuries following the alleged ordeal.
Majors lost his bid to dismiss his domestic violence charge in court on Wednesday and will now stand trial.
Judge Michael Gaffey made the ruling at a court hearing in Manhattan, which Majors attended via video because he was out of state.
On September 12, his lawyers filed the motion, claiming the state had withheld evidence that would prove Majors’ innocence. This was denied on Wednesday.
A test start date has not been set.

The chaotic proceedings were further muddled when the Majors filed a countersuit against Jabbari, claiming she was the one who attacked him.
An NYPD document was created that alerted officers that there was probable cause for Jabbari’s arrest in June.
The prosecutor in charge of the case has reportedly stated that he will not prosecute Jabbari Hollywood Reporter.
Jabbari’s attorney has not commented, nor has the NYPD.
Priya Chaudhry, Jonathan Majors’ lawyer, also had no comment – but has previously expressed her strong belief that her client Majors is innocent and that Jabbari should be arrested.
The opposing sides disagree about who was the perpetrator of the March 25 event.
According to court documents, the couple was sitting in a car when Jabbari saw a message on the major’s phone that said, “I wish I kissed you now.” She reached for the phone, causing Majors to twist her forearm and hit her in the ear.
She tried to get out of the car and he “threw her back in,” causing her “ongoing significant pain, including a broken finger, bruising to her body, a laceration behind her right ear and a bump to her head,” it says the documents condition.

On August 4, Priya Chaudhry said in a statement to DailyMail.com: “Jonathan Majors has waited 132 days to clear his name of these false allegations while the NYPD waits to arrest his accuser upon her return to New York.”
And on August 3, the lawyer said: “One hundred and thirty-one days ago, authorities wrongly handcuffed Jonathan Majors in his own home and hauled him off to prison based on the words of a woman now being hunted by the NYPD.”
“Jonathan Majors bravely disclosed to the NYPD the relentless, alcohol-fueled abuse he suffered at the hands of Grace Jabbari, an enduring nightmare in their relationship.”
“As soon as Jabbari sets foot in New York again, the NYPD will be ready to arrest her.
“For four agonizing months, the life, career and reputation of Jonathan Majors, the true victim of this shameful ordeal, were destroyed.
“Yet he remains steadfast in his determination to be exonerated from this cruel ordeal.”
Chaudhry requested a quick trial date for Majors in June to expedite the case.
Then, on September 6, prosecutors said they were ready for trial and had filed a certificate of compliance. Majors’ attorney claimed to have found flaws in the document.
For this reason, they filed a motion to dismiss, which has now been denied.
