Lindsay Not Ready for Her Closeup

11/27/2007 7:20 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay LohanLindsay Lohan is camera shy, at least when it comes to court cases.

TMZ obtained court documents, filed by Lohan's lawyer, objecting to a request to videotape her deposition in connection with a car accident in 2005. Lohan struck a car as she was traveling down Robertson Blvd. near the Ivy.

In the legal papers, Lohan's lawyer actually uses Britney Spears as legal precedent -- go figure. The lawyer notes that the judge in Britney's custody case recently rejected a request to videotape her depo. Lilo's lawyer acknowledged the Brit ruling has no legal impact on his case but says "the point made...is significant," citing a "likelihood of unwarranted embarrassment."

The judge has yet to rule on whether the cameras will roll. Stay tuned.
