Lindsay Lohan

High Marks

from Alcohol Ed

5/18/2010 8:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan is in compliance with her alcohol ed course -- this according to a letter sent by program officials to the judge in Lindsay's DUI probation case.

According to the letter from Right On Programs -- filed with the court and obtained by TMZ -- Lindsay "attends regularly and consistently."  And, program officials say, "Her attitude is positive and receptive to ideas regarding lifestyle changes."

The program wrote the letter, despite the fact that Lindsay has only attended 10 of the required 13 classes.  And the program makes no mention of the lifestyle choices Lindsay has made over the last few months that have been captured by countless cameras.

According to the letter, "She has never come [to class] under the influence, been rude or disrespectful."

The letter notes Lindsay "attends regularly and consistently communicates in a timely manner to reschedule if necessary."  The program concludes, "At this time, Lindsay is in program compliance."

According to supporting docs, Lindsay had a few weeks where she did not attend, but the program says the lapses were approved, once so she could go to a Haiti fundraiser in NYC and another time so she could go to Europe to promote her clothing line.

The program is not required to notify the judge unless Lindsay misses 21 consecutive days.  The judge, however, ordered Lindsay to attend class at least once every 7 days, but apparently that was not communicated to the program.

As TMZ first reported, at Thursday's hearing the judge will be told that Lindsay has -- as of now -- attended only 10 of the 13 classes and she did not attend all of them within the 7 day intervals.  Lindsay, however, has a good argument on the 7-day requirement if the program let her slide from time to time.  As for not completing the 13 classes -- it's all up to the judge.

Because Lindsay is not in full compliance, the judge has ordered her to attend Thursday's court session.

It is not Lindsay's fault if the facilty did not get a copy of the judge's order. The judge has to take that into consideration. I would like to see some of you juggle your schedule to meet this court order and continue your career in between. At least Lindsay is attempting to move forward .. though she does stumble at times... with all of us to witness. You have to hand it to her for someone her age she is doing a pretty good job trying to maintain... good or bad ... she seems to be trying.

That program is a joke. What is their goal? I thought it was supposed to address alcohol problems, and it's obvious that Lindsay's problem is still out of control.



Going to those classes is completely worthless, and the court should find another program to utilize.

Hey TMZ looks like the wheels are coming off your smear campaign. For weeks you have been print half truths and speculation to get her put in jail and now the truth is coming out.
Not likely any judge is going to jail someone over her very minor violation especially when the jail is stuffed full and everybody gets a get out of jail early break. Even if she does a no show Thursday I bet she is allowed to surrender and is immediately released pending her next hearing.
You guys should spen your time getting Alexis Neiers info and tracking her jail time. She got 6 months which would be 90 days but only if the judge used the same brutal rules on her as was used on Paris and the judge did not. That means she will do 18-36 days for a half-million dollar robery!

I agree with Number 5, somebody got paid off. Or received some other sort of 'favor'. They outed themselves when they wrote in that letter, "She has never come [to class] under the influence, been rude or disrespectful." PAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA, total B.S.



I would LOVE to get the truth and perspective from other participants in those classes. I'd bet they'd have something very different to say.

This is really the only ongoing drama TMZ has. They will milk it to death. It is filled with just enough interest to keep them posting day after day ... like they did with Paris Hilton. TMZ is judge, prosecutor, jury and defense attorney all rolled into one. What a bunch of losers!! Just so typical of Hollywood garbage collectors. Get a real job, Harvey.

But it is Lindsay's fault that she didn't abide by the Judge's ruling. It doesn't make a difference that the facility didn't know about the Judge's order. Lindsay did. But who cares, as long as she makes it to court on Thursday she isn't going to jail. Even if she does it will be for a few hours, maybe a day but that is it. I mean how much time did Bach do for her 2nd DUI

You got it, Jersey. She is attempting to comply. It is not like she ran off and told the judge to screw off. She is going to class and gets excuses when she needs time to adjust her schedule. Again... a judge is suppose to be fair. She will give you enough rope to hang yourself ... just like Robert Downey's judges did. You eventually get sick and tired to dealing with the criminal justice system trying to get you on the straight and narrow. And that is all that is really happening in Linday's life. The law is for the lawless. Try breaking the law and see what happens. Ms. Lohan is becoming the poster child on that one... along with the rest of Hollywood's elite.

She needs help. She is something like 24 years old and looks to be in her 50's. Something is eating her alive. She needs to physically, as well as figurtively, look in the mirror.

Dear TMZ readers,



Please keep believing all of this drivel that TMZ has been frothing at the mouth about lately, because your going to be sorely disappointed come Thursday. Lindsay can do whatever the **** she wants, she's a celebrity!
