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.

This is funny!!!

Can't her lawyer see that this is a HUGE cry for help whether Lindsay knows about it or not!!!

Lindsay's career is over unless she sobers up... but I do think that we ALL need to stop babying Linds and let her fall naturally. With someone like this, its only a matter of time before they hit rock bottom by themselves. Although to me, Linds HAS hit rock bottom yet refuses to see it.

Linds, WAKE THE **** UP!!! What production company will take you on anymore??? Is this the life you want??? How is your music career going??? Not so good is it!!! How about your love life??? Got no one to snuggle, do ya??? Hmmm what about this war you feud with your father....
Your home life is no different than most in the USA. You could become SUCH a role model to young children who were just like you in a single-parent household. Heck I was raised by just my father... My mom left... never came back!!! Did I manage to snag movies left right and centre like you did as a child??? Hell no!!! You've got it pretty good there lil girl... so stop complaining and smarten up!!!
Do the Dr. Drew show... get the million dollars... turn your life around... snag an awesome movie contract... win some awards... get married... have kids... life goes on... don't make the same mistakes as your parents!!!

God Speed!!!

The only person responsible for Lindsay's behavior is Lindsay. She chose to be an actress and with that comes publicity, wanted or not. If she doesn't want all her dirty linen aired, then change jobs. No one cares about a secretary's problems, or a nurses. If she expect to earn money off people wanting to see her then she needs to take the good with the bad. Grow up Lindsay - actually people on TMZ are pretty fair minded. I think the problem is you.

Give me a break.. The feelings people have towards Lohan are brought on by HER ACTIONS ALONE.
If she did not walk around stoned off her bum, making stupid decisions for the world to see then no one would form a opipion.

Does anyone think Casey Anthony will get a fair trial, probley not but that does not mean you put it on hold until people's opipions change.

She has got to have THE WORST lawyer in the bad lawyer gene pool!
Lindsay has already crashed & burnt to a crisp by her own stupid, immature self-indulgent actions.
It really is not my fault the awful choices Lindsay made.

Boo-hoo LL. If it was any of us, we'd be rotting in jail. But keep the excuses coming- I'm sure the SCRAM bracelet was just being mean too.

Lindsay Lohan should pay her debt to society like the little people. I just feel like in 5 years we will be hearing of her death due by drug overdose, I think this is her fate unless she really begins to make serious changes and she needs to start now before it is too late, Maybe some actual jail time and estrangement from her parents will do her some good.

You act like you don't know if those comments were made here or not. Do you not have the ability to do a quick search of your comment database to see if what he says it true?

Regardless, while TMZ may get a lot of traffic, only a tiny fraction of the population actually visits this website. Most people don't give a crap about Lindsay's life so they can pull an impartial jury together.

I agree most comments on her posted are uncalled for. that being said, I believe news on her is posted hourly is because it changes hourly. putting blame on tmz is a last ditch effort on their part all news posted is true and not fabricated,not once was anything untrue, tmz is all over her, but not only tmz, my local news broadcasted her latest incident (WI), along with network stations from new york. you reap what you sow................if i were a criminal, i'd move to california!

The only reason everyone "hates" her is because she continuously breaks the law and gets away with it because she is "famous". If it was anyone off the street they would have been punished for the first offence. And why is her lawyer so focused on TMZ if their reports are false, why not find some actual evidance? well maybe because there is none.

Mr Ovious    

Her lawyer is accually right. I mean ever since i found out about this website all of those who comment seem to say mean ignorant **** about her. They did the same thing about britney back when she went through her tough time. The truth is people like number 14# are just those knd of people who love to hate others to feel better about themselves. because in real life how many of you will walk up to someone and say i hate you, and youre a crack head bitch so die?? None f us just a bunch of cowards hiding behind their computers and making rude and evil comments. This is the last time im visiting

She has yet to accept any responsibility for her behavior. She has an excuse for everything, falling down, the cocaine in her pants pocket, the SCRAM going off. Typical addict behavior. I wish I were on the jury. I would lock her and her mother up and throw away the key.
