Nicole Richie

in Deep S...

7/10/2007 2:34 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0710_nicole_ritchie_bn_01-1The Commissioner in the Nicole Richie DUI case did not grant the continuance Nicole Richie wanted. Period.

As TMZ first reported, Richie's lawyer asked for a continuance until August 5th, because her expert witness, Dr. Terence McGee, was not available to testify then. Commissioner Steven Lubell was visibly upset and ordered both Nicole's lawyer, Shawn Chapman Holley, and the prosecutor into chambers. When the Commissioner came out, he said he would not rule on the continuance and ordered all parties into court tomorrow morning at 8:30 AM -- that's when the trial is scheduled to begin.

Nicole Richie -- click to launchSeems like Nicole is in a pickle. She flew to Calgary last night with baby daddy Joel Madden, who is performing a gig in the Great White North. Will Nicole bail on the concert and come back to face the Commish?

We'll let you know!

(She's one of the few out there) that horizontal stripes would be flattering on. Black and white is oh-so-chic with the big Jackie O sunglasses.

Question for all the legal people:

Isnt this just like a prelim hearing or something where they just announce whether to plead guilty or not guilty? if so, i thought the defendant doesnt have to be present

curious,

yes, you are right. normally, you would ask for an adjournment (depending on state) sometimes even through mail if all parties are notified and all that good stuff. however, I am not sure what this court date was for - as far as I know, it was for trial, which means she would have appeared - I am assuming the doctor will be there too now

This is one little lady that has to get a good meal into her and some food for the baby, she will kill the baby if she does not eat enough. What mental illness does she have?

From a lawyer, probably what will happen is everybody will show up and her lawyers will ask for a continuance on the record because their expert witness is not available, and the judge will grant it. Lil Nicky will have to be present, though, or else the judge will be well within the law to issue a warrant for failure to appear.

Parents Need to Know    

Looks like Nicole has taken lessons from her BFF Parass - admit on Letterman she's ready to face the music for what she did, then try and get out of it any way she can.

When will these stupid girls ever learn.

Send her skinny little butt to jail - it appears 2x's in rehab, certainly didn't help.

Does Canada also have seperate laws for celebrities??
A DUI charge is considered a felony in Canada and this makes a person inadmissable to the country under their normal laws.
I have seen people turned away at the border because they have a DUI charge but it seems that Nciole has no such problems.

Tila is nasty!!!    

I hope she goes to jail these little sluts in Hollywood think they can do whatever the hell they please. If Parasite can do the time so can this skank. Shes a total bitch on the few Simple life episodes I've seen. So she deserves everything she gets. I wouldnt be surprised if shes lying about being pregnant so the court will be easy on her. IF she is pregnant shes gonna look retarded, because she dont even eat now!! someone call CPS quick! shes gonna be another Britney mother! what a joke!!!
