She doesn't want to deal with LILO'S F-ups any more. She knows LILO is too much to handle and making it till 7/20 will be rough. LILO maybe be out of money too.

For all of you bitching that she got too much time...DO THE MATH!
There were 3 violations....at 30 days each = OMG.... 90 days!
Good for the judge. And frankly what does she expect now that Loco did the figernail thing. The judge should do all her fingers and wave bye-bye to the loser.
Lets hope she carpools to jail with George Michael and we'd be rid of both of them !

No surprise. I can see a laundry list of reasons the attorney would want to bail. If it was Lins call, that makes sense too as Lins assumes she is above the law and can't see lawyers can only do SO much.

Do you really think Lindsay is going to pay her legal fees? I doubt it. That and not her total lack of respect is more likely the reason Shawn is quitting. Lindsay probably wants to sue the state, which will be about as successful as those 12 year old Palestinian boys throwing rocks at trained and armed Isreali soldiers. Tiffany probably doesn't expect Lindsay to pay her bills either because she is going broke, esp. now that no film co. can get a bond on her. Tiffers just wants to raise her profile.

Very good move if she did quit. I have a feeling she was fired though because Lindsay didn't get her way.

SCH exact statement about Lindsay's nails

"The fact is, the words could barely be seen by the naked eye. That a courtroom camera, purportedly there to accurately chronicle the proceedings, would use a telephoto lens to zoom in as it did to Ms. Lohan's fingernail is a commentary on the entire issue,"

Isn't LiLo's fingernail a commentary on her?? She has shown no respect towards the court and the judges orders, then has the gall to paint THAT on her fingernail for her court appearance. Whether you could see it from the bench or not(someone must have seen it and gave the camera operator a heads up) ...it was totally inappropriate. When will this girl ever learn.

Pictures are a thousand words, and look at Holley's face. All through the sentencing, you could see she was fed up Lindsay.

I'm not surprised she quit. I thought that she would either quit, or would be let go because Lindsey thought she would get out of it and go completely free. Again, like the judge said, Lindsey likes to blame others for her troubles and not take her own blame rightfully so. Maybe she is blaming the lawyer for not working wonders for her, when it's time she pay some time in jail and more for the sake of her life. What the judge has decide is for Lindsey's own good, but in the long run Lindsey will have to learn it all the hard way. Lindsey thinks she's untouchable, but not human on this earth is untouchable.
I don't have to see what the cards may hold for Lindsey at this time, for it's plain to see with the way Lindsey is living her life and the choices she has been and still is making.
It would be a surprise if Lindsey goes the next week or so before jail without another violation of some sort.

did she ? quit I mean

I think that's not good news for the other side (even if now the other side looks good so it may be too late to try to do some real Lawyer's work for the benefit of the Lilo's side)

I wish all the best to the new Lawyer and Lilo please work with the new Lawyer and do whatever she/he says

and Lilo can you please hire some good assistant and togheter hire a new good Lawyer "with the constant supervision of the hew good assistant" this time?

it's important, please do so right away (a good assistant and a good Lawyer)

Shawn Holley Chapman was useless. Just look at the video of her in Court on May 20th and on Tuesday, she was full of emmms, ahhhs, she didn't have a clue. Even Harvey after the May 20th court hearing, implied Shawn Holley Chapman could have done so much better. Love or hate Lindsay she deserved a decent defense and she didn't get it with Shawn.
