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.

Anyone know if the food at Lynwood is prepared on-site or if it is brought in? If prepared on-site, I'm guessing Lindsay's will have unwelcome additions added to it by inmates working in the kitchen.

Thank Goodness this Judge is actually thinking about what is best for Lohan. She is losing her battle with Drug Addiction. For her own good she needs confinement. Hopefully after another 30 days in jail she will check herself in a real R/H clinic, not some country club and spent the six months needed in a real program with actual physical work.

It is either that or most likely she will drag herself and some innocent person into a car accident. Remember is about her drunk & reckless drinking.

Lindsay texted me the other day she would fly to fort worth and suck something for a little cocaine.

She didn't go to jail for drugs..She went to jail for a probation violation.

She violated her probation cause she decided to snort a little coke,and was hoping she could flush her sytem before the pee test.Looks like her detoxification didn't work this time around.

Nicole Enabler should have come up with something better than pickle juice for Lindsay to drink.


Good dry Nicole..gotta give ya credit dear.Oh,and say hello to Dina for me when she pays you for posting here all day.

It is obvious the legal system in LA is a mess! Looking at this objectively, it's apparent the judges fail to find a happy medium. One wants to to go against Dr.'s orders and this one fakes out ALL the legal experts. As somebody who has previously struggled with addiction, I can tell you all the rehab in the world isn't going to help Lindsay. She has to help herself and there is definitely a law of diminishing returns when it comes to 12 step meetings, counseling, and rehab. She will quit when she's damn good and ready.
Minds are like parachutes, they only work when they're open!

Jail changes no one. However, it is a place to think about your life and how much damage you have done by winding up there. Reflect. However, if the judge was wrong .. then let America's judicial system work. It is truly a good one and should be fair and honest. You would want the same if we were locked up illegially. Attorneys are really not our best friends when it comes to what we need. However, if you want out of jail or prison without knowing why you are really there, then a good attorney is heaven sent. That is not to say you will be right back again in no time at all...wella Lohan... and thousands of others who are trapped in the jail and prison revolving door. In California at least 85% of people released from a prison and jail are rearrested and go back in within one year. Lohan takes the cake on this one.

This judge is just trying to make a name for himself. You cannot deny bail to someone just because they are famous (or infamous).

1. she's probably in some posh separate cell that gives her tv, books, phone access, etc.- to 'protect' her from all the other inmates 'because she's a celebrity'....so she's not even experiencing what jail is REALLY like
2. the lawyer needs to be put in jail herself for trying to get her out, but the $$$$$ is talking and she'll do anything immoral for the $$$$$$$$
3. sick of her parents blaming everyone else for failed rehab, etc. IF THE REHAB WAS TO BLAME THEN THEY SHOULD HAVE TOLD THEM NOT TO LET HER GO EARLY. HER STUPID PARENTS DIDN'T SAY A DAMN WORD ABOUT HER GETTING OUT TOO EARLY- WHY?
4. sick of our taxpayer $$$ going to anything involving this spoiled fu cking brat who has everything and has wasted her good fortune while the majority of people are working their asses off just to get by and not doing drugs
5. ONLY A MATTER OF TIME BEFORE SHE KILLS SOMEONE WHILE DRIVING HIGH ON DRUGS..

Does anyone around her tell it like it is? Even her lawyer is crying "no fair" when she must know better! Maybe Holley is just trying to max out the billable hours. She certainly wouldn't be the first defense attorney to do that.

If a person released on condition she does not fail a drug test o/w she would go to jail - what part of that didn't Lindsay or her attorney not understand? Lindsay is a crummy actor & no one believed she "gets it now."

Damn, the court is only trying to save Lindsay from killing herself with drugs, and no one in Lindsay's inner circle gives a damn about her, apparently only what they can get from her. Like him or not, her father is the only one who seems to care about getting her help.

If they let her go this time, just let her have all the drugs she wants and watch that when she kills herself while driving she doesn't kill someone else.
