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.

Poor baby LiLo... I dont hate you at all. However, You are no different from any of the rest of us "commoners" and need to be held to the same standard of law as everyone else. Your very visible attitude, your partying lifestyle and blatant disreguard for the law do not serve you well. Simply BC you have the resources to hire a "circus lawyer" doesn't giver you andy special privaledge. You are not royalty. You are a girl that is in desperaite need of real help, both mental and drug use related. You need to be held accountable for your actions.

hey harvey, if u could read this to lindsay lohan since i have no way of contacting her personally. its not that the tmz users hate her so much, its just that she is a human being, and when u mess up, u pay. it took me a year and a half to get my stuff together to complete the prop 36 course for my errors, and she shouldnt be able to get by. its a proven course that if u wanna stay sober, or just make beneficial life changes for urself, that the courts may seem strict, but believe it or not, they want you to suceed!! they dont want you to fail!! the couselors are 90% former addicts and know how to help. YOU JUST HAVE TO WANT IT!! dont hate TMZ, cuz i actually care for you and wanna see u prosper. u have talent, but dont use it properly, and i think that disgusts us. ENOUGH SAID! and stay cool TMZ!!!!!

Yeah the die/hate thing is a bit much, people type without reading and stupid crap gets submitted.

BUT everyone is responsible for themselves, we get up, go to work, pay our bills,buy a house, drive a nice car, these are all things that we do as responsible adults, not Lindsay she is a addicted former actress who feels entitled to absolutely everything. If she is out in the public doing what she should not be,and is called out on it THEN STAY FREAKING HOME!! She is so fame addicted that she cannot stay home and watch TV, she has to be out doing whatever. Her lawyer now is whining in the press that everyone hates Lindsay, and there you have it another person defending her innocence, grow up Lindsanity! Accept the result of your actions

When you are on a jury don't they ask of you are familiar with the person charged? and then are are asked if you are can put aside what you know and judge using the facts of the case Does the lawyer believe that he wont be able to find a impartial jury? and if that's the case she better change lawyers.

What is that Crazy Junkie talking about???

Here's a comment for the judge:

"Lindsay Lohan is a talented actress, however her behavior, including well-do***ented problems with substance abuse, has caused a near-collapse of her career. In light of the deaths of Heath Ledger, Anna Nicole Smith, Michael Jackson, et al in whom prescription drugs played a part, we know that substance abuse is possible even when the substances are legally obtained. It is obvious that no one close to Lindsay, including her fame-hungry parents, have successfully attempted to get her help in dealing with these issues. I ask the court to give Lindsay a fair sentence, in line with what would be given to a non-celebrity under these cir***stances, in hopes that she may rehabilitate and once again become a sucessful and employed person."

Umm well when you are "famous" and in the "public eye" what do you expect? Yeah, I hate her. So what?

I don't hate her personally, but I do hate spoiled brats who think they can do whatever they want and get away with it. She just happens to fit that bill.

Her lawyers need to convince her that all of this publicity will go away if she behaves herself. The fact that she doesn't seem interested in doing that isn't the jury's fault.

It is not hate for her that angers most is her disregard for the law and others. Really such an attitude of entitlement.

How hilarious! I cannot believe, much as I love snooping on TMZ, they would not be able to find 12 people in all of L.A. who never, ever go to TMZ nor do they really even have any idea of who Linds is. If I didn't read here, I wouldn't know anything about her either. It's not like she makes it onto the main stream stuff very often. To most, she's just another stupid celeb. As for "hating" her, probably it has a whole lot more to do with Celebrity Justice rather than actually disliking her herself.

Lindsay and her lawyers both need a good,strong dose of common sense,ethics,morality and taste.Lohan needs to understand that she is not above the law because she is a celebrity.Her lawyers need to tell her that.Sadly, Lohan was not a celebrity,she'd be in jail this very minute. Because of her celebrity,her bad actions aren't bringing the proper consequences;Lindsay does as she pleases.Her actions are giving her bad press and public criticism.She needs someone to point out to her everything that she has done that brings criticism since she lacks that ability to do so.

I don't think it's hate directed at Lindsey, but rather frustration at the legal system, and the imbalance of justice we are reading about. I for one wish the girl would join AAA/NA, get straight, off drugs and be a leading actress. It is so tiring to watch someone waste the obvious blessings they have, and make excuse after excuse for their messes. why do these girls think they have to do bad things to get press, Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Jennifer Gardner, these ladies get parts, make money, and get press time, so Lindsey take note!

Her behavior has more to do with creating pubic opinion than anything else.
