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.

If the judge puts a gag order on the case, we won't be subjected to endless coverage of LL's every move.



I'm good with that.



However, I think the dynamic of the TMZ message board is simply that you have celebs that (by nature of the game of celebrity) have very public lives. People here get annoyed at the countless slaps on the wrist. I don't believe that we have some sociopath nutjob who actually wishes ill on Lohan or anyone else. People just get caught up in the anonymity. I really think the lawyer is making a mountain out of a molehill and doesn't understand the dynamic of an internet message board.



Still, I'm good with not hearing another word about LL and her chronic trouble with the law and her apparent inability to understand that, yes, she does have to conform to the same rules as everyone else (just with less consequence, it seems).

Wow, all of you people who are bashing tmz users for their opinions, all while you read the articles and post on them, are hypocrites... You aren't bashing us for reading the articles b/c you are too... So you MUST be bashing us cuz our opinions don't match yours...
"Freedom of speech means acknowledging someone whose opinion makes your blood boil as they stand front and center preaching for that which you have spent your entire life preaching against" paraphrased from movie "American President"...
Don't hate on us for our opinions... And although I would never condone wishing death on anyone, I do feel that it's a matter of time before she ends up dead if she doesn't get help.
But the "poor Lindsay-boohoo-i'm a poor misunderstood celebrity-i shouldn't HAVE to stay away from alcohol" mentality is doing nothing but keeping her sick... So all of you defending her and refusing to admit she has a problem are the biggest part of her problem...

Ahahahaha! That's a good one! Yeah, it's true, TMZ user's do hate Ms.Lohan. We hate her because she keeps getting breaks for no reason. If any normal person did HALF the sh*t this girl does, they would be in prison for YEARS. Stealing a car while drunk and with drugs in your pocket? Come on now.



Seriously, what happened to people being punished for the crimes they commit? The ONLY reason Lindsay is still "famous" is because she's a well known drunk and drug addict who's too STUPID to stay out of trouble and who somehow manages to weazel her way into celebrity events despite the fact that she hasn't even made a decent movie in 10 years.



You want to know why Lindsay keeps acting like the law doesn't apply to her? BECAUSE IT DOESN'T! People have been paying her fines and carrying her through this whole situation while she continues to laugh in everyone's faces. Yes, I do hate Lindsay Lohan. If I ever saw her in person, I would punch her in the face as hard as I could and then walk away. That's beside the point though, any jury in their right mind is going to want that bitch in jail, not because "TMZ user's hate her" but because she genuinely deserves to be locked up. Straight up.

Why so much BS, If Lindsay did not act like an idiot, people would not judge her so harshly. Most of us would like to see her on a better path.

neither of these two sluts    

Sorry but your client wants to be famous yet wants to do as she pleases when it comes to the law...in this case i am no longer laughing at lindsay, but laughing at the judge in this case...how many times will she let lindsay make her look like an incompetent fool...once twice three times.....lindsay just knows how to skirt around this idiot judge, and this makes the judge in this case look like a BIG FOOL!

Nothing she is going through is nothing that she hasen't brought on herself. She should have to stand in front of a judge like any other citizen would have to. She has brought on the attention that she is receiving herself. I agree threats are carrying things too far, but I think their argument could be used by anyone in the public eye. Get it all this over with Lindsay, and get her life in order and things like this won't happen.

Dont call other people idiots when you dont know how to write in small letters. Big letters are unpolite. Turn off your caps lock and try again.

Lindsay, you never should have messed with the e-trade babies.



Seriously, I don't hate you but girl you need help. Even the guys suing you tried to deal with you to quit drinking and stay sober. (dumb as it sounded) Most of us remember the cute and gifted girl in "Parent Trap" and we as parents, see what your own MOTHER refuses to see....you need help or you are going to die.

This is the other comment i have about this situation... Fame=lack of privacy. Maybe it isn't fair, but that's the way it is... You can't pick and choose which parts of fame you want. If you enjoy the money, then quit whining and put up with the paps. If the lack of privacy is too much to handle, then stay out of the public eye. That has its drawbacks though, cuz out of sight, out of mind...
Bottom line, she wants to stay relevant, so she courts the media EVERY CHANCE SHE GETS, then gets all hot and bothered that "everybody picks on me, nobody likes me"... Try this on for size Lindsay: Until your hearing, why don't you stay out of sight ? don't go clubbing, don't go to parties, stay out of situations where you will have to defend or explain yourself... Even queen of the mediawhores Paris Hilton seems to have learned that lesson... LOL
And before I have to hear from Dina in one of her many tmz poster names, it's not like laying low is gonna hurt her career at all, cuz she hasn't done any meaningful work in years...
