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.

Whats so odd about a show-biz person getting caught with drugs. Without drugs she wouldn't fit in, if she didn't fit in she wouldn't be famous, if she wasn't famous she'd probably be enjoying life.

And I'll bet anything that if you had the money, you would want SCH to do the same thing for you! Don't hate the player, hate the game!

She is not being held for a misdemeanor, she is being held for probation violation.
The appeals court will side with the judge.

"She should not be in jail. She should be free. She is an American."
Hahaha, what?! A lot of Americans are in jail, does that mean they shouldn't be in jail?
Wow. XD
Totally done here, people are blinded by celebrities and think they're higher than everyone else. In America, people are "equal" so she should be in jail, just like anyone else who does what she did.

Judge Fox,

1) Have you ever lied?
2) Have you ever taken a drug that was illegal?
3) Have you ever drank an alcoholic beverage?
4) Have you ever driven a vehicle after drinking alcohol?
5) Have you ever submitted a false claim?
6) Have you ever plagerized any work, in part or entirety?
7) Have you ever not upheld the U.S. Constitution?
8) Have you ever stolen anything?
9) Have you ever benefited from your job, outside of your pay?
10) Have you ever been incorrect?
11) Have you ever had a thought that was immoral in nature?

I honestly feel sorry for this woman. In order for her to learn, she must spend time in jail, try to come off the drugs. Otherwise, she will be just like Michael Jackson. I would rather see her in jail then dead. Hollywood, should take a back seat and stop pressuring celebrities. These people are working hard and the pressure is strong.

She doesn't need to sit in jail for 30 days. She needs 18 months of rehab. The women has a serious problem. Her mother is in denial and needs to stay out of the media. Lindsay needs some serious help. The media needs to go away. Although we know that will never happen. I hope she is able to get better in the midst of the media circus.

She will lose this appeal because she was jailed for repeated probation violation. The judge CAN do that.

Moreover, appeals take time and cost money. So good luck with that.

I GET TIRED OF HEARING MICHAEL LOHAN TALK SILLY. NOW WHAT SHAWN CHAPMAN DID , IS RIGHT ON LEGAL TERMS. THE BOTTOM LINE IS ..JUDGE FOX IS WRONG ON THE LAW PERIOD AND KNOWS HE WILL LOSE IN THE APPEALS COURT . HE JUST DID THIS TOO MAKE A STATEMENT. THE JUDGE CAN BE SANCTIONED BY THE APPEALS COURT AND ORDERED TO STEP DOWN FROM THE BENCH. ON THE LEGAL; ISSUE , MISS CHAPMAN IS CORRECT . THE BOTTOM LINE IS ,THIS IS COURT OF LAW AND NOT PUBLIC OPINION.

I thought that Lindsay was ready to face the consequences of her actions? No, she's ready to fight the consequences of her actions.
