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.

Yes, now it's all the horrible people who comment on TMZ . Seriously, she is a famous drug addict who keeps getting preferential treatment because she is a "star". People are angry because if any one of us had pulled the cr*p she has pulled we wouldn't be seeing the light of day for quite some time. Like I have said before, Miss Lohan is making a mockery of our Judicial system. She either needs LONG TERM INPATIENT drug treatment or jail time.

She is 100% right. TMZ and other slime rags are like hatefull little kids. Once they dig their claws in nothing is off limits including lies. They Killed Brittany and Simon and now they are gunning for Lilo's death.

TYPICAL LOHAN! Blame others for your problems! Yeah I "hate" you. You are a HORRIBLE role model for my almost 10 year old daughter. She hated me for not letting her watch your movies, but now she see's why. I could smell a failure and a woman with a death wish at a young age. You didn't fool me one bit, and I am so glad I did it!



Now I will be even more vindicated when Miley keeps pulling the crap she pulls and ends up like you.



I blame the parents, all 4 are HORRIBLE parents and should have to get a licence to have children.

It's true. If TMZ could do reports on LL taking a dump it would. TMZ does hound her, people do talk trash about her because that's what people due online, talk trash cause no one knows who they are. Freedom of speach, hate speach, wishing people dead, whatever. But it's true that the media follows her every waking move and poeple write nasty comments. That's true.

Add this one to the do***ents... Any judge who would let Lohan get away with these defiant antics has no business being on any bench anywhere. Lohan should be in a jail for a time, then a rehab facility. The court can and should order it if only for Lindsey's own good. Anything less is judicial malfeaseance.

Cool, we're being quoted. And it's her behavior that has sparked the sentiments here. Some people will always go over the publicly accepted line of verbal decency, and America allows people to do just that. But she has put herself in this position, and she will continue to be protected until she kills herself. It's just a matter of time.

Most here hate her because if they were put in the same situation she repeatedly put her self into, they would not be entitled to numerous chances as she has been given. Instead, they would be locked up. Bail set too high to post and already tried and convicted.



This twit has used numerous entitlement benefits to drag out court dates and stay out of jail. That is what infuriates the general public.



You see this twit openly and publicly scoff at the law by continuing to drink, leaving the country, being photographed in a room with cocaine, showing up to court late, missing court ordered classes, and just lately drinking while wearing the scram.



What infuriates the public is her smirk seen in many pictures after she has been caught, on her way out of court, when given yet MORE chances to clear up her life. She is laughing at the court system and at the rest of the world by once again beating the system.



As far as I know, and I want the attorney to prove this since she raised this argument as a defense, no TMZ reader forced, payed, threatened, or otherwise got this twit to jump in a vehicle, kidnap the occupants and endanger their lives by putting them in a dangerous car chase. She did that all on her own.



As a judge I would raise issues with the attorney about fabrications about work in Texas which was proven a lie, why she is late to court, when she is not working and was photographed being out late the night before at a club, missing court mandated obligations, etc.



These types of attorneys also seem to share and relish in the perks of celebrity entitlements by getting away with things bordering on unethical. Yet the court overlooks these questionable tactics.



As a citizen I take issue with the way the court refuses to take control of this twit and move forward with the trials. Show the public that no one is above the law, and the law treats everyone equally.



You can blame TMZ all you want but the bottom line is, none of its readers were there or took part in the kidnapping and car chase. None of them were there after the car chase and planted a folded up paper with cocaine in her pocket.



She wants a fair trial? Then lets give her one. When she is found guilty, and she better because kidnapping IS kidnapping, fair jail time should be imposed with fair sentencing in the general population with everyone else, not some one-person jail cell with protection. Don't give her what she again thinks shes entitled to. Give her the equal justice and sentencing she deserves.

She needs to just GROW UP!!! She needs to accept her life and she needs to accept her actions.



She also needs to forgive and forget... She blames everyone else for her problems except her. She is the adult now... Just seems to me that while yes it is addicts behaviour to do that, it is also the behaviour of a spoiled brat that doesn't accept responsibility!!! Her parents bowed down to her at every whim so of course she acts above the law. She was never held accountable when she was a child so why should she now??? Her mother doesn't actually act like a mother, but only as her BFF and we all know that's is SO wrong. You should NEVER act as your child's best friend... you are their mother/father!!!



So this problem isn't just about her addiction... it's the way she was brought up. A SPOILED BRAT!!! She thinks she is better than everyone (hence above the law) and doesn't need punishment for her irresponsible childish behaviour.



Hopefully the Judge will see right through this little tart and throw away the key. Although she prolly won't serve any time... maybe a day or so... and then she'll be out. I believe she needs to be thrown into an inpatient treatment centre for mental health and addiction. But Linds won't really get the help she needs. Remember the last time she went to Rehab, all she did was obtain a BF there. She makes a joke of life... so this is why people joke with her life. Why is she so famous??? I think the worst is yet to come. Sorry Linds but until you smarten up and take care of yourself... I nor many people will not take you seriously and you will never be hired for a serious role (like an Oscar/Emmy like you want)... you can dance around the issue all you want and you so desperately do not want to be like your dad so you keep denying your actions. Until you realize that you are NO different than him, you will never grow up!!! Forgive him and you will see your life change immediately. You do have people that love you and want good things to happen to you but you need to change the negative energy that is so focused on you right now

ARE YOU SERIOUS??? I CANNOT BELIEVE THAT THESE "ATTORNEYS" ARE GOING TO THAT EXTREME. THAT IS WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYY LOW!!! But, what else can we expect from Attorneys??? I believe TMZ is just stating the facts about LiLo. She has made her own bed, now she needs to lie on it.

We hate her because the bitch gets away with everything. This bitch should be sitting in a jail cell right now, but because the American Justice System is such a ****ing joke, the rich and or famous don't go to jail in this country. Tell your client to stop acting like an alcoholic coke fiend skank and we'll stop hating the bitch. Until then, shut the **** up. The bitch constantly spits in the face of the justice system with her drunken drug fulled antics and the moron judges in California continue to slap the bitch on her wrists instead of putting her ass in jail where she belongs. The average person would've been in jail years ago after the **** she's pulled. Also, the celebrity apologists on this site are ****ing disgusting. Why don't you brainless *******s all drive off a cliff somewhere and rid us of your stupidity. You idolize a ****ing alcoholic drug fiend skank like she's a goddess. Pathetic.
