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.

OMG people get over it!!!!!! At least she is famous because she acually does something! I think she is just a normal person that is enjoying her celebrity life. Hell I would if i were famous! wouldnt you?It just looks bad cause there is a camera on her everyday magnifying it making it worse. How cool would you look if everyone was watching you?

@seriously, yo
Well said all around!
Does she, and her lawyers, really think that she can publicize her middle finger to the world and not have the ramifications of opinions? At the very least they should put her twitter/fb/etc accounts on lock down as well.

Aside from it all I really think that she had the ability to be a pretty good actress. It's so sad to see someone throw away so much potential. In fact, after all she has done HW keeps giving her chance after chance. She either needs to straighten up and take the right road. OR THEY need to stop giving her chances...enabling her immature choices makes them just as accountable for her train wreck of a life.

yeahhh. Lindsay wouldn't be at court if she wasn't a alchol-addict and a drunkie. Too bad she became all bitchy and ****-like. Otherwise she would still be doing movies.

Who are to judge anyone? Seriously, no one on here is perfect. Granted if she gets away with this with just a slap on the wrist, yeah I'm gonna be pissed, but for people to judge people is just not right. Everyone lives in a glass house, stop throwing stones.

All I can say is 'Boo Hoo'. Yes TMZ do feature Lindsay more than most other people at the moment - but if she stopped going out to clubs night after night and staying out until 4am, when we all know she is wearing a Scram bracelet and has other issues the courts are addressing for alcohol etc - they would have nothing to say about her.
She is a spoilt brat as far as I am concerened - if it was one of us,we wouldn't have been given so many chances. Take responsibility for your own actions for a change and quite possibly people will start to take you seriously. Most people would also want this court issue taken care of as quickly and quietly as possible - she seems to be drawing it out. Maybe because nobody takes her seriously as an actor anymore, and at least this is publicity? hmmm ...

I have always been a fan of Lindsay's since she was a little red head. The movie she played in with Dennis Quaid and Natasha Richardson has always been my favorite. Lindsay I don't hate you. I'm your #1 fan 4 life.

LINDSAY PLACES HERSELF ON DISPLAY,,,It may help if you the attorney, advise Lindsay to show some respect to the court by not commenting about her current situation, since she apparently does not know what to say or do.... Stay out of the media, complete her court mandated program .
Advise her she WILL GO TO JAIL IF SHE Does not do what the COURT REQUESTS OF HER.... and that You the Attorney cannot help her if she does not desire to Help herself!
