Busboy Settles with Lohan over Robertson Wreck

2/22/2008 5:55 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan has settled a lawsuit filed by a busboy who claimed she was drunk when she hit him with her car in October of 2005.

Raymundo Ortega filed the suit last June, even though the cops said he was to blame for the wreck on Robertson Blvd. Ortega, alleging that a then 19-year-old Lilo was pounding drinks at the Ivy before hopping in her Mercedes-Benz and driving off, had sued for at least $200,000 in damages.

Ortega also sued the Ivy, claiming they were responsible because they had served her drinks. That case was dropped last month.

The terms of Lohan's settlement are confidential.

Deep Background    

Another reason to settle is that you are paying your lawyer a considerable amount just handling the case. They may have negotiated this busboy down to a trival amount say $20,000. Why take a change wiht a dumb ass jury and have to face a potentially embrasing cross examiniation? An you still pay just as much for your defense or even more. Our legal system is f**d up!

Also, there is no evidence that Lindsay was drunk at the time. The police sided with her which means they didn't find evidence of DUI or she would have been arrested. The bill itself proves nothing. She was with I think four other people and paid for everyone. The others were over 21. So what proves (not what you believe but proves) that she had been drinking?
