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.

Nicole, your recommendation that she refuse probation and just do the rest of her sentence so that she can just get out early because of overcrowding demonstrate that you have NO INTEREST in her getting better. She should go to rehab.

Right now most of the public is not willing to forgive her. They are not going to believe her they next "I've learned my lesson" interview.

The outpatient stuff wasn't working. The chick only had to stay clean until November... unbelievable.

Interestingly enough, the Governor of California, does not believe he MUST accept the vote of the public. This is proven in his most recent comments and actions concerning prop 8. This is not a democracy, this is a MOCKERY of the PEOPLE of The United States of America. This is EXACTLY what Americans are tired of. I refuse to be judged with this country so long as our leaders are not RESPECTING OUR VOICE.

THE BOTTOM LINE IS ,THIS IS COURT OF LAW AND NOT PUBLIC OPINION.

*****************************************************

yes it is a court of law (which Lindsay refuses to respect) and the Judge has EVERY RIGHT to put her in jail until the hearing.

Let me get something clear. I am not blinded by anything except this unending haze which seems to come over Americans that causes them to believe they cannot do whatever they want in the privacy of their lives or home as long as it has not caused harm to another individual. I am not for using drugs. I am not for drinking and driving. But as an adult do we need another MOM and DAD? Should drugs be illegal? I guess if your in public having consumed them, yes, otherwise, no. Do I feel good about that? No, but without choice where is liberty? If the government would spend more time educating people about their rights and making sure they got them instead of trying to coax us into believeing in them by offering us candy like free this and free that, America would be a better place and would not be indebted. Drag them out by their ears....

Bottom line is the court of law is a public venue and the public has the right to know and challenge the court. That is what being in America is all about my friends. I say, let her go, your wasting our time, her time, and your time, "COURT OF LIES, I MEAN LAW"

May the earth shake, may the walls break, and may the doors of freedom open for this woman. And may she live another day, to clear it all away, and prove once and for all that she had a choice to live and obey.

Honestly TMZ has some of the dumbest people posting, the judge violated the law today and was rightfully over turned. He's not supposed to care, but carry out the law - which he didn't do today. That violates ALL of our rights you dumbassess. Shawn Holley is doing what she is legally bound to do, represent her client to the best of her abilities, there were no new charges today. A probation violation for a couple of dirty tests does not mean no bail. There are literally thousands of these cases heard every week in Los Angeles, and if they were all in jail we'd have to put a razor wire fence up and turn the city into a prison. Grow up. Something happened today that was very bad, but it was judge Fox's illegal behavior holding someone on a misdemeanor violation hold with no bail. He should be ashamed of himself.

She's an adult from a terribly dysfunctional home, does she need help, probably but there is no new crime or new charge and guess what you can't force a person to stop until they want help. Mike Blohan should know that with all that experience with blow and drink he has *sniff sniff*, leave the dwarf youth minister to people who care *which is no one*, the crazy stalker Linnocent dude looked as sane as Lindsay's dad, which is to say all 3 of them glad handing around a mic looked crazy. Your daughter ignored you today in court as you walked by, refused to make eye contact or acknowledge you Mike Lohan. Don't you have some of her personal diary pages to sell off for cash, she's your source of income and you'd sell her out in a hot second & you have on many occasions. Perhaps you should stop drinking Mike, instead of living the lie you do in public. Your day of being exposed is coming, it's just a matter of time now. Seeing all these anti law posts is so crazy, are American's really this ignorant of how the legal system works and is supposed to work? One of your fundamental rights was violated people, and that should scare you all.

She is a s*** bag loser. Let her over dose, she won't be any big loss at all. Then Dina can say what a wonderful daughter she WAS. I also think that Michael would have been a much better parent then Dina. Dina is another loser who just wants her 15 minutes of fame through her daughter. I'm just sayin!!

Shawn Chapman Holley, I hope you will be at Lindsay's funeral which is where it looks like she's headed. I don't have much more hope for this situation.

I think that you forgot that long before Dina ever came into the picture (publicly) Michael was the one who start the madness of trying to get his 15 minutes of fame.

It concerns me that none of the posters here seem to understand the US constitution. A judge can not order someone held without bail simply because they are pissed.
