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.

Dragging this process out for that spoiled brat is what is making TMZ readers WANT her to crash and burn. Her lawyer needs to get her into court and/or jail and get it over with so the rest of us mere unfortunate mortals can rest knowing that there may actually be an unbiased legal system remaining in this pitiful country. Everytime a celebrity gets preferential treatment, the legal system proves that it's not as blind as it's supposed to be.

She needs to get clean and sober and follow the law. Maybe the lawyer should help her get her life on track and stop reading comments.

There is no sense in delaying...people are going to hate as long as it takes for her to be punished.



She is responsible for this mess she has created.



I want to know why she isn't behind bars. I'm not too familiar with US Law. Couldn't the judge just throw her in the slammer if she were to violate her probation?

CRY ME A RIVER YOU CRAZY DRUG ADDICT/ALCOHOLIC. SHE BLAMES EVERYTHING ON EVERYBODY ELSE. SHE'S A "CELEBRITY" (DON'T KNOW WHY)SO HAVING THE PAPS FOLLOW YOU AND REPORTING ON YOUR STUPID LIFE IS PART OF THAT. IF YOU CAN'T DEAL WITH IT THEN GO THE HELL AWAY ALREADY. THEY SEEM TO LIKE YOU ACROSS THE POND SO MAYBE YOU NEED TO RETHINK YOUR LIVING SITUATION IF YOU EVER GET OFF PROBATION.

OMG . . . Yes we do want to see Lindsey crash and burn . . . Crash and burn hard. I have my Vegas odds on Dec. 25th, 2010 40 to 1 odds. This **** has had so many chances to clean up her act and still can't get it together. I beleive she is out pasted both Leaf Garrett and the old Robert downing Jr. in getting no jail time with the second chance program. We await TMZ to report that she has OD'ed or crashed her car with death involed. what a waste . . .

This is just another tactic Lindsay's civil attorneys are attempting to delay the civil legal proceedings. TMZ is providing us a service by promptly reporting, with visual & do***entary evidence, that she is not living up to the terms of her probation. The reason why Lindsay cannot get a "fair civil trial" is not TMZ's fault but Lindsay Lohan's fault. Hopefully the civil judge will see right through the attorney's tactics and deny their delay petition.

Oh please. People dislike her many reasons. I do not think anyone wants to see her die. I think people dislike her because she has squandered and literally thrown away advantages and opportunities that the rest of us would love to have. She gets preferential treatment from the judicial system that the rest of us would never have. And instead of putting on her big girl pants, she whines and blames everyone else for her problems. She needs to own up, take responsibility, and get her act together. It's that simple.
