She fired her lawyer for not getting her out of the jail stint. Again, she refuses to take responsibility. She hired the newbie because Lindsay thinks she's naive enough to believe her crap.

Lohan's lawyer is a total amateur - as are everyone around her.

Anyone who deals with modern media knows that you don't need to zoom in on something to catch it in fine detail these days.

Most of the pro level camera's would have easily caught that with any sort of zooming during the trial. If you've seen someone blow up a high resolution photo and something the photographer never even noticed showed up in fine detail, you'd realize that a public figure has to be careful. I've seen an eagle's feathers from a couple hundred yards away and the photog wasn't even paying attention to the eagle.as he was shooting a waterfall panorama and picked it up later.

Chances are someone was looking over the photos and blew them up and wondered what the little ditz Lohan was smirking about and realized she was flashing F-U's at the judge. Any decent publicist and lawyer would have caught Lohan being dumb and protected her interests by not letting her wear this garbage into the courtroom.

Holley is a damn good lawyer. I'm a legal eagle in a court room, and I watched and listened carefully to each word. Lilo is stupid to dismiss her. stupid. STUPID, and I'm not even team LiLo, but objective in these proceedings. Now, after the F U fingernail, contempt of court, hit the internet, I could see Holley resigning, but nope, she was dismissed.

The fingernail F U, was clearly an insult to the Judge, the proceedings, and the citizens of Cali. That act needs to be admonished by the judge.

Q Was Holley dismissed before or after she hand LiLo her bill for representing her?

Question: Did Holley quit or was she fired. I doubt any respetful attorney (such as holley) would quit just because the case doesn't look good. It's not good for business.

My bet is Holley didn't quit, but LILO had another temper tantrum and fired her shortly after court.

How's that working for ya know Lindsay?

It's doubtful that the judge will allow Holley to walk away because she didn't win. If she's in a middle of a high profile case, ya just can't say buh-bye unless the defendant fires her. Just like Casey Anthony - Baez is in for the long haul. Holley sounds like she wants to take her ball and go home. Doesn't work that way. Bringing in a new attorney at this time can jeapordize LL case and very well may keep her out of jail (if that's Holley's intent).

LMAO..... I saw this coming but am surprised it took this long.

Lilo is a great vehicle for a newbie to splash her name out there into the spotlight and get in line for her 15 minutes of fame. Much better than plodding along at some firm for years.

Between the nails and Lindsay's stoopid tweets, who can blame her lawyer for quitting. But a publicity stunt? Nah. This lady's been her lawyer for three years! That's pretty damned patient for a stunt. I believe she's justifiably getting away from a train wreck so she doesn't get any on her... Watching the courtroom antics has me convinced Lindsay is officially delusional.

We have not begun to see Lindsay throw a fit yet. She is for the first time in her entire life, going to go for time out. She is not going to cry, lie, cheat, fight, pay, or pray her way out of it. The more the reality sets in with her, the worse her behavior will be.

I remember the last time Lilo was in court before this judge and the judge made it crystal clear Lilo was to attend the classes once per week. Shawn spoke how Lindsey was attending more than 1 class per week and the judge said if she wanted to do that, fine, but her ruling was a mandatory 1 class per week. She couldn't double up, etc.

Frankly, NO defense attorney could have prevented Lindsey from getting jail time. Lilo didn't comply with the judge's order.

BTW, if you watch the court proceedings with the sound off (beginning about 10 mins before the judge pronounces sentence), you'll see Lindsey looking bored, angry, not paying attention, etc. until she hears the first "30 days in jail". THEN she pays attention, lol.

Yet another stupid move. You could see it in Chapman-Holley's face the other day when the verdict came down & Lindsay started yak-yak-yakking in Holley's ear..."What??? What??? What did she say...OMG!!.....What??....OMG!!....I CAN'T BELIEVE IT??...." hehehe Holley wanted to knock the crap out of her! LOL!

"Shut up Lindsay!! God, will you just....SHUT....UPPPPPP"?!!

Holly is a flippin' SAINT for putting up with this silly twit!

This all just keeps gettin' better & better:)

Stay tuned, folks! Tiffi's up next!
