Lindsay Lohan's Lawyer

Files Appeal

9/24/2010 8:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned ... Lindsay Lohan's lawyer, Shawn Chapman Holley, has just filed legal papers appealing Judge Elden Fox's ruling that Lindsay should be held without bail.

Lindsay Lohan Jail Appeal
Holley claims the judge must grant bail in such a case -- and is asking Judge Patricia Schnegg, Assistant Supervising Judge for the L.A. County Criminal Courts, to vacate Fox's ruling.

Unless the ruling is overturned, Lindsay could spend the next month in jail ... waiting for the next hearing.

Chapman Holley is 100% right on this move. The judge does not have the right to set put her in jail without setting bail...

Chapman Holley is 100% right on this move. The judge does not have the right to set put her in jail without setting bail. She did violate probation but a seperate hearing needs to take place and if found guilty she will be sentenced at that point. Lindsey Lohan needs to go back to jail but the judge also needs to follow the law. THE JUDGE IS 100% WRONG FOR NOT SETTING BAIL AND HOLLEY WILL WIN THE APPEAL GUARANTEED. SHE WILL BE OUT ON MONDAY, MARK MY WORDS. JUDGES ARE NOT ABOVE THE LAW JUST AS LOHAN IS NOT.

It is the responsibility of the hired lawyer to free the client, regardless of what he or she believes, that is what they are being paid for or not paid for in the case of a public defender. I AM TELLING YOU THIS FOR THE LAST TIME - IT IS THE politicians that have made the LAW a MOCKERY. While America was asleep, they wrote into laws ridiculousness and patted eachother on the back for it. LET THE WOMAN GO, and even better yet, let's start digging deeper into EVERYONE's lives and their DEEP AND DARK SECRETS. (judges, politicians included)

Lindsay Lohan ENABLES HERSELF. NO GUN TO HER HEAD. LOHAN LIKES HER DRUGS, DRINKING AND PARTYING. ALWAYS BEEN THAT SIMPLE.

Lohan likes the party scene.

"Get this injustice overturned
FREE LINDSAY"
Injustice? Freeing her won't make her learn anything. Actually, being in jail she still won't learn anything. She's an alcoholic, all she cares about and all that's running through her head is when she's going to drink next. She has money, that's why there's no bail, because she can buy her way out, just like all celebrities.
She will never learn

Yep, another Rougue Judge with their head up their #*@, Yes, Bail Must be Granted unless the Person is a flight risk or serious risk to the public... Lindsay is neither... Like it or not, the Judge Must comply with the Law... I hate Judges that think they are above the Law... This Judge is no better than the S*** she Sends to jail. Anytime You give your freedom away to judges like this, you are just telling the other judges to do whatever they want too
