Lindsay's Lawyer -- The Judge Is TMZ Free

5/22/2010 5:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan's lawyer told TMZ not to flatter itself by thinking Judge Marsha Revel would consider the now-famous photo we posted of Lindsay partying in France.

Lindsay's lawyer, Shawn Chapman Holley tells TMZ, "I do not believe that Judge Revel reads TMZ or any other 'celebrity' news and she would never be influenced by something which is NOT evidence in the case."

As we first reported, the D.A.'s office will not address the photo in open court because it's pure speculation that the substance on the table may or may not be cocaine.

But Holley wasn't done. She added, "It is difficult for Lindsay to get a fair shake because her every move is chronicled by TMZ and others. This creates an unavoidable frenzy around her case and subjects her to a level of scrutiny which non-celebrities do not have to face."

Oh yeah, one more thing -- Holley scoffed at Michael Lohan's lawyer, Lisa Bloom, for "taking credit for Judge Revel's decision" on Thursday. Holley says when the judge read Bloom's letter to her and the prosecutor in chambers on Tuesday, the judge cast it aside -- along with all the other letters from people not associated with the case.

Bloom fired back to TMZ, "Court staff told me the judge opened our letter in the presence of counsel and considered it." Bloom added, "No one asked for stricter controls on Lindsay besides us. The judge ordered stricter controls, including drug testing, which we specifically requested."

Why is everyone bashing TMZ??
Harvey did not put Lindsay on the plane and send her to France a few days before her court appearance.
Harvey did not pour liquor down her throat.
Harvey did not push her to the ground several rumes in France this week.
Harvey did not put her at a party where there was drug use.
Harvey did not cause volacano to blow.
Harvey did not "steal" her passport.
Harvey did not snap all the incriminating pics.

Lindsay's created her own problems.So don't blame TMZ for her bad behavior.

What does she expect? She is just another of the hollywood wingnuts that doesn't have a meaningful life. Running around doing the party scene is hardly noteworthy. The media rag sheets will do a tune on her because that's what they do. Get a life Lohan.

"Everyone" must be Dina

I just checked the votes. Out of appr. 16 000 people, 12 000 actually believe TMZ has been "fair" to Lindsay Lohan. Which goes to show the amount of gullible people who are visiting this site, ready to believe that photos sent to a gossip site is actually evidence that Lohan has to "explain", that its authenticity is beyond questioning and that the TMZ interpretation of it has to be the correct one. Amazing.

(Yes, I know many people vote several times, but even if all those double votes are registered, the outcome is likely to be roughly the same.)

I seriously don't believe Michael should butt out. If Dina has full guardianship over Lindsay and doesn't believe anything is wrong like she has been telling everyone and Michael...she is obviously blind and not doing her job as a mother or guardian by being up in Lindsays buisness when these rumors of 'crack-head' started. Personally I think she is in denial and doesn't want admit to Michael or anyone else Lindsay has a problem because it would all fall back on her bad parenting.
I have a lot of respect for Jamie Spears. He was RIGHT there with Britney the WHOLE time. THAT is someone who Lindsay should have...a PARENT not a 'parent that tries to be a friend' at her side and that is what Dina is trying to be a 'parent/friend' Dina can't be parting with Lindsay at 2 in the morning thinking that is acceptable when they have a court date that morning.
Michael is taking the initiative and trying to be the parent.

#35 - Aston: Stay on topic, the cocaine photo has been a non-issue for the last 36hrs, since TMZ reported the photo wouldn't/couldn't be used in court.

Linds is doing all this mess to herself and she seems perfectly fine with that so if TMZ is reporting on it just like everyone else, it's her own fault for putting herself in those positions of having anything to report in the first place. At some point, the gal will have to take responsibility for her own actions and quit blaming everything and everyone else under the sun.

As for her dad, what do you do with an adult child who is slowly imploding? Would you rather he did nothing until she kills herself or OD's? Then who would you blame? Her dad, of course, for doing nothing.

TMZ...aren't there any other celebs you can write about? WHAT
is your obsession with this no-talent, spoiled brat Lindsay Lohan?
Let her party herself to DEATH and then everyone can say...."see
told you so". But PLEASE stop with all the stupid, boring
coverage of her..."Lindsay parties", Lindsay loses her passport"
"Lindsay this, Lindsay that"..."ENOUGH ALREADY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
WE DONT CARE ANYMORE! Don't you guys READ the comments we write?
If you did, you would see some of us are getting tired of your
non-stop posts about this twit. When she goes to jail, or ends
up dead, that is news. The rest is not....GET A CLUE!

It wouldn't be a problem if the ho being followed day and night wasn't doing anything wrong or illegal now would it? This stupid freak show should be behind bars. She is a "has been" and she is a danger to those around her.

It's a little late for Holley to make this statement, as she already faux-pas'd in the presser on Thursday...she actually made a point to say the Judge IS influenced by quote: "All of this." - referring to media attention and actually mentioned TMZ.
Holley was lamenting the Judges ruling for post bail conditions etc.
This recent revelation is designed to put that fire out...but I'm sure Revel saw that presser and is already poised to strike.
Too late you lame, really weak and incompetent lawyer...yikes!

just read on Radar that lindsay was interviewed regarding this picture. her response was "What!!' and that someone had set her up. She also said "I hope that isn't cocaine on that table" I mean how delusional can this girl be? everything is a set up to her. I really hope that she gets the book thrown at her, because at this point she has blamed everyone including her father. She actually claims that he had someone steal her passport, and that he has set her up. Now someone else has set her up with this pic according to her. Lindsay, you need help. I really hope that you seek it, because you need it my friend.

Michael Lohan has been salivating thinking "conservatorship!!!!"
Not sure how long he would be in charge of any $, she may not have much for long at this rate.
We know a lightbulb went on in his head, thinking of Britney Spears and how her dad controls things for her.

"It is difficult for Lindsay to get a fair shake because her every move is chronicled by TMZ and others. This creates an unavoidable frenzy around her case and subjects her to a level of scrutiny which non-celebrities do not have to face."

That's why you get the big bucks, honey. Deal with it.

For what it's worth, I don't think her dad is in her business because he cares about her, I think he's in it because he ultimately wants a conservatorship. You can just see him salivating like a cartoon wolf for it.

I think it's sad that even those hired in a professional capacity serve as enablers to this young woman. Lindsay is in the public eye because she consistently makes a public spectacle of herself--with the aid and abetting of her two seriously dysfunctional parents. Her lawyer should be spending more time helping her get the help she needs, which would go a long way to easing her current legal battles, and less time whining about her 'unfair treatment' by the press.
