Lindsay's Lawyer: TMZ Users Hate Her Too Much

6/9/2010 11:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan's civil lawyer is asking a judge to delay a big civil trial ... because so many people want Lindsay to crash and burn at the moment, she just can't get a fair shake with the jury.


TMZ has obtained legal docs that attorney Ed McPherson will file this morning ... in connection with a lawsuit in which several people claim they were terrorized by LiLo during a wild, dunken ride down Pacific Coast Highway in 2007.  It's the same incident for which Lindsay is now on probation.

According to McPherson, "Every facet of the criminal proceeding and every facet of Ms. Lohan's life ... have been reported on TMZ and other media outlets literally on a daily (and sometimes hourly) basis."  McPherson goes on:  "There are current widespread public feelings of intense negativity against Ms. Lohan ..."  McPherson says it's highly likely the jury pool will be tainted against her.

And McPherson includes some harsh comments -- he told us they're right from the "comments" section of TMZ -- including, "I hate her; she should be killed."  "She's a drunk, a junkie, a no-talent actress who has no respect for the law."  "This bitch needs to be locked up without her drugs and her roommates ..."

And McPherson adds, Lindsay could end up in jail for 6 months if the judge in her criminal case rules she violated her probation.  Therefore, McPherson says, the civil trial must be put on ice until the criminal case is resolved.

UPDATE:  TMZ has learned, the judge in the civil case just denied Lindsay's motion to postpone the trial.  But the issue can be revisited after Lindsay's probation violation hearing on July 6.

You reap what you sow - she has been constantly courting the paps and press since she was like 10. No one made her act like that - it was her choice. No one made her flash her dirty hoohaw at the world or party constantly, stumbling home in the wee hours looking trashed. No one made her hang out with Paris Hilton and the other socialites who have made it their mission to be rich(er) and famous just for existing. Now her plan has backfired and she's whining? Sorry Linds, clearly your parents forgot to teach you about cause and effect. Every action has an equal and opposite reaction - this is what happens when you break the law and blow it off likes it nothing. Anyone else in your situation would have been in jail years ago. Maybe you should pull out some of those acting skills you keep bragging about and show some remorse, and while you're at it, a little morality.

I'd really like to feel sorry for you, really I would . . .

It's difficult for me to feel bad for someone who has millions of dollars, and is beautiful (mostly due to her wealth which allows her hair extensions, eyelash extensions, lip filler, boob job, botox, professional makeup, personal trainer, good food). Yes, yes, I know, she has family problems--we all do! I know people who have had waaay worse than she has. And if we had 2 DUIs, were caught with cocaine in our system and on our person, didn't show up for court, violated terms of probation, violated terms of probation AGAIN, we'd be in jail!!! I don't hate Lindsay Lohan, I hate the special treatment that money buys you in our supposed "blind" justice system.

I believe it really has to do with the fact that the average citizen would be convicted and the public is tired of seeing celebrities get special treatment by the judicial system. If LL had been an ordinary citizen, she would have been suffered the consequences. Unfortunately, she probably never will because she is a celebrity and her Atty will use it to that advantage.

Plez, we are simply sick and tired of her getting away with breaking the law - over and over and over again. Thumbing her nose at all. She should have been arrested for testing positive on the ankle bracelet, we would have ... money talks. Comments about Lindsey are light compared to others on here, read comments about Kate the breeder, she gets brutalized always

That's right it's internet users fault Lins can't straighten up. Not like she can control her own actions.

Word of advice, Linds and her lawyer shouldn't be worrying what's on TMZ and start worrying about her issues at hand

Screw all you haters. I love Lindsay! She's a really great and talented actress. She's made some mistakes, but she'll get her act together. She's too good not to.

Oh, boo hoo!! Cry me a river--My name is Lindsey, I feel that I can do whatever I want and get away with it. It's time the bitch took responsibility for her actions for a change!! Oh....and get off the drugs before you die dumb ass!

I don't think it is so much that people want her to crash and burn as people are really disappointed in the system that allows her to continuously get away with breaking laws that not only affect her but endanger the public- She had 2(?) DUI's within a short period of time, hijacked a car and had a high speed chase, had cocaine on her when she was taken to jail, failed to complete court appointed program, violated probation, violated scram program and still she is out partying till all hours of the morning.... She needs help... she can recover but not if there are no consequences for her actions... just sad... anyone else would be in jail

Really??? That is your big defense? TMZ hates me??Sweetie most of America hates you. We do not respect criminals who keep repeating crimes and get off light with no time and a fine. If that were some regular person we would have been locked up the first time!Hopefully these judges bring some serious ass whooping on you....maybe you will finally get it.....
