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.

0608_Lindsay_lohan_TMZ_EXCLUSIVE

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.

A serious injustice has been made against this girl by the courts her father her mother and all other peers in here life..No I don't feel sorry about her current situation however "normal hardworking americans" who find themselves in this kind of predicament almost always end up in jail. Some not majority beat their habits there and continue on to have a better life..Habitual offenders never get to see the light of day. As someone who has gotten a DUI at the age of 23 and is now about to turn 25 I've found the strength through the ones that care about me! I can't drive a car because my license is revoked and can't afford car insurance when it gets reinstated. I've pretty much lost my social life...however Im not deterred by this! I know that my lesson has been learned and that I will not repeat history again. I lost respect with many people including my family and put a burden on them with this situation. I am now grateful of what the court asked me to do and realize that I was not only hurting myself but oculd have been a danger to someone elses family memeber friend and companion. So I ask you america has this girl learned her lesson...to me HELL NO!!!! When you've lost all that you have had and have to start to rebuild then maybe your lesson will be learned..People dont change at all!! They may adapt better habits but without HELP and some HARD LOVE you can become the person you want to be!

Since this attorney is wasting his time reading the comments section of TMZ, let me just state this then:



You're wasting your time! There are hateful people everywhere! A jury is asked to remain unbiased, and trust me! You will find at least 12 unbiased people. Not everyone wants Lindsay dead. There are a lot of people out there who want to see Lindsay get back on her feet. Plus, like one person said, people have the right to free speech. The "people hate her" defense is a poor defense!



Does he really go through all the comments? Even the Nike and Cialis ads?

Poor poor Baby! Lindsay has only to blame herself. She does this to draw attention to her in the media. She know it will get her out in the press when she does things like that. Maybe she should do a Reality show maybe call it Everyone body hates Lindsay?



You can`t blame TMZ or AOL TIME WARNER for reporting on what stars do in pubic We read it and they report it!



I know some readers opinion is very bad and mean but i respect their opinion Like I would them to respect my opinion. Tell someone to die is going too far!



Site and Newspapers In Hollywood since the beginning Reported on what the stars do!



Lindsay has 2 choices in life
1. Do what the court tells her
2. She can crash and Burn and do it the hard way(Unless it`s too late)



Her lawyer should tell Lindsay she should lay low until the trial is over!



Like the Don Henley song says : Everyone Love Dirty Laundry!

Milkawhat?



According to the entertainment industry, which rates such things, Lindsay is well-known and yet widely disliked - which basically means she not a sound investment. So don't go blaming a few posters here at TMZ when it is society at large which finds Lohan disagreeable. You can't choose to be in the public eye and act like an entitled bitch time and time again and not expect the public to get tired of your bad behavior. If you're going to blame someone for Lindsay's bad reputation then blame Lindsay.

TO MR. MCPHERSON. BE A STAND UP MAN AND QUIT BLAMING TMZ AND THE PUBLIC FOR LOHAN'S BEHAVIOR. We did not put a gun to her head to force her to take drugs, alcohol, disrespect for herself and the law and to make sure she tried every trick in the book to accomplish her selfish goals. The very best the law can do is to place her behind bars, not for punishment, but for her to wake up and realize the world does not revolve around her. We are much better than, THAT! Her behavior defies the law and has proven it time and again. She comes across as a highly conceited, self absorbed individual, who, throws a tantrum if anyone crosses her. In other words, she is still a little girl who refuses to "grow up" and face herself as she really is. You know that too, Mr. McPherson. So, STOP blaming everyone else and place the blame where it belongs, squarely, on Lindsay Lohan's shoulders. If you care for her at all, and not the compensation, you will help her recover whatever dignity she may have had. Good Luck!

Why should the victims/plaintiffs in the civil suit have to suffer delay of justice by having their day in court postponed pending resolution of Lilo's criminal case?



The plaintiffs and their attorneys have put in a lot of effort in that case, and have already been delayed by Lilo's blowing off her scheduled deposition a couple of times. They should not have to suffer further just because Lilo is suspected of violating her probation and failed to return to the U.S. in time for her scheduled hearing date in the criminal case. Those were her own bad decisions.

Good riddance!    

Oh course people hate her! A sociopathic, arrogant junkie with no regard for the law or other people outside her pathetic law breaking family. Pretty simple and who cares what some paid defense attorney boo hoos about? They get well paid to do that. I hope she gets nailed for the maximum the law can deal out! And to McPherson, you should make sure you still have your wallet after you are done dealing with this loser! Beotch has sticky fingers, but you probably already know it, but would never admit it.

I don't hate her. On the contrary, I got a thing for drunk red heads.

I for one have no problem with Lindsay. That she has issues with drugs and alcohol, true but really who lives a perfect life? Most definitely not the weirdo's (constantly changing their nics) who come here to comment. I am not crazy about the defense / excuse her atty. is trying to present to the judge.Perhaps TMZ and all paparazzi should have a limit, only because these people chose the life of glitz and glamour shouldn't mean they have forfeited their right to privacy! Lindsay is just as human as everyone else, seems as if the world feeds on those who have problems and take their own personal issues and perhaps have been belittled and write down crappy comments about a person(s) who are having issues, rarely we read about those who have suc***b their inner demons. The paps are just waiting for their downfall to report it and splatter the news in BOLD.




I say, if she chooses to ruin her carrer then it will be her and by her choice only, that she wants to better herself well then I am totally behind her. Lindsay has probably endangered others lives w/her actions but she still has a chance to turn her life over. Hopefully she does and fights her inner demon.



LIVE & LET LIVE! Good Luck L.L.

Another effort for sympathy. I care less what happens to this skank, but she is not above the law or the homeless guy on the corner. She smells like the homeless guy though. She deserves as much time in jail as possible. She is an untalented, uneducated, stealing, lying, self serving hack.
