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.

What does the tmz comments have to do with the jury. Im glade the judge didnt go for this one. OJ simpson, Michael Jackson, and other celebritys have had trials and everybody knew what was going on. And alot of people hated them to.People thought they were guilty and still do.Oh and no ..God forbid do i think MJ was guity. so MJ fans calm down now.calm down..Im afan. I dont hate Lindsay I dont even know her. I think some people make mean comments to get a reaction from other people commenting. Its sad that people have to do that, but thats life and there are hateful people out in the world not just TMZ. I just hope and pray she gets the help she needs . If she cant even make it 2 mo. without using something ,then she has a serious problem. This disease could even take her life someday.

Lindsay is real person, not a piece of dog meat to be ripped apart. Further, Lindsay IS a good actress on a tough path right now. Lindsay does NOT need jail, she needs court ordered, long term, supervised help from a professional medical treatment facility and she needs some true caring friends in my opinion. Some are worried that Lindsay will get celebrity treatment but the pendulum swings both ways, that is why some of you are on TMZ attacking her. Just because you have a right to your opinion does not require you to be mean spirited, but whatever blows your hair back.Can any of you feel for even a moment what Lindsay has been through and why she may be having the problems that she has? Being a celebrity does not guarantee happiness. When someone starts out as a child/teen actor, there are plenty of greedy hands to go around. The child may be surrounded by those who put money,celebrity,and all that can go with it ahead of the best interest of the child. What result do you expect? I do not know first hand what all Lindsay has been through but I do not think it has been easy for her. Just watching her parents (for example) bulldoze their way into the spotlight (on Lindsay's celebrity) any way they can, every chance they get, I believe it speaks for itself. It seems obvious to me that some of you feel that celebrities do not have the right to be human. I feel somewhat certain that many of you know troubled people in your life, or maybe you are the troubled one. I believe Lindsay is suffering, lost and confused without a strong support system. I believe that Lindsay may feel empowered by her drugs and alcohol because it allows her to escape from her pain. Lindsay is a young woman who needs help not insults. What if it was your daughter, mother, sister...? May God bless you and your loved ones Lindsay. Love and peace.

Half the people who post on TMZ messageboards are drunks and drug addicts themselves. LL's lawyer is doing her job, it's what she gets payed for. Everyone is in such a tiff over this, it's not hurting you. All people do is hate online because they can.

I dont feel this has anything to do with a jury. BUT I DO FEEL TMZ NEEDS TO MONITOR POSTS BECAUSE IT CAN GET A BIT CRAZY.I READ APOST A FEW DAYS AGO AND THEY SAID ABOUT GARY COLEMANS WIFE THAT THEY HOPE SHE GETS MURDERED AND RAPED. I FEEL THATS CROSSING THE LINE. TMZ BLOCK THESE KIND OF POSTS AND DONT LET THEM POST ANYMORE COMMENTS. or PEOPLE WILL STOP READING TMZ GOSSIP

You get what you give! She has brought every bit of this one herself. I don't want to see her die but I do want to see her get the punishment that we know damn well the rest of us would get. Get over yourself Lindsey and start taking responsibility for the decisions you have made. You want people to stop being "mean" to you then start giving us a reason to not be!

For anyone to say that TMZ goes too hard in on Lindsay Lohan, that someone must think that TMZ is the only gossip site in the blogosphere.
TMZ is actually easy on Lindsay, when it comes to some other blog sites, that pride themselves in hardcore hate. Mixed in with some very witty execution style comedy. Get off TMZ and connect to some other sites. Where everyday crucifixions are the norm. There is a wide variety to choose from.....Artofwar

Lulu, stop posting when you're drunk. It makes you misspell commonly used words.

Look at Robert Downey, Jr. A no nonsense judge, and his own will to live saved his life. RDJ is much better off, and even though prison was a hard lesson, and slipped up after release, he eventually realized he had run out of free passes and could no longer charm his way out of taking personal responsibility. Now he's married, seemingly healthy, and his career is better than ever. Everyone wants to work with him.



It's doubtful this girl is going to live another 5 years. Her lifestyle will kill her. Use the law to get her on the right path -force her to accept responsibility for her actions. I hope Lindsay smartens up.

Wow! LOL So now Lindsay is making her lawyers blame the press and TMZ users for how unfair the world judges Lindsay and therefore, until people start writing nice things about her, there can not be a trial. LOL Lindsay really is a master of casting blame around, and coming up with excuses for herself. She is amazing, i'm surprised the CIA has not hired her yet, she could weasel herself out of any sticky situation. If she put half that energy to any productive use... She could be a great actress, she could be a great anything, too bad she only wants to be a great bad girl, partying in peace, evading the law.

I honestly thought that MAYBE, just MAYBE, the judge would realize the severity of the scrutiny, see what we all see, and show some moxy and actually DO something. But given recent developments, I have lost all hope for that ever happening.



At this point, Lindsay (and unfortunately this judge) have become nothing more than ineffective laughing stocks and poster children to the ENTIRE WORLD for a joke of a justice system.



Lindsay isn't ever gonna serve a single day in jail, so we should all just accept it. And if she DOES, it'll be one of those 20 hour stints due to overcrowding. The judge, who was supposed to be taking this "zero tolerance hard line" against Lindsay's antics, lost all her credibility in my opinion when TMZ reported that Lindsay can now drink, and she won't go to jail, just pay 10K a pop. She hasn't actually lost her bail, blah blah blah. She CONTINUES to be allowed somehow to wiggle her way out of everything.



There is NOTHING this girl can do that will actually get her punished the way we think she should be. She may as well snort a line right there at the defendant's table next time she's in court.



Your Honor, the world is watching, and YOU and our NATION is being judged, laughed at, and severely mocked based on this crap. You, Your Honor, by your actions, are setting precedents, making history, and creating a LEGACY for yourself. What's your legacy gonna be?



Remeber Judge Lance Ito? His legacy is forever written in stone, and it ain't a good one.
