Judge to Lohan: Get Ready for Your Closeup!

11/28/2007 2:50 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

LohanThis is one film that Lindsay Lohan did NOT want to star in, but a judge cast her in it anyway. Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Michael Stern has ruled that a busboy can videotape her deposition as part of his lawsuit against the starlet.

Raymundo Ortega sued LiLo after he claims she had been drinking at the Ivy when she crashed her black Mercedes-Benz into his van on Robertson Blvd. in October of 2005. He is suing her for at least $200,000 in damages.

Lindsay's lawyers wanted to prevent the videotaping, claiming, "If a single picture of Ms. Lohan can sell for thousands of dollars, a videotape of the deposition will undoubtedly sell for tens of thousands of dollars, or more."

Lohan says Ortega's claims that she was drinking are inaccurate and unsupported by police documents. She countersued him and is asking for more than $75,000 in damages for the repair of her car and the cost of renting other vehicles.

What an airhead.

She ploughs into a guy's van and she's suing him for 75K.

She has the intelligence of Britney

Hey Walt - too bad LiLo isn't suing you! Too bad you don't have the advantage of LiLo's spot on legal advice. And you comparing LiLo to Britney is like me comparing you to the village idiot - except that Britney is a lot smarter than you!
