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.

they should leave her in jail and this time not substitute her addiction with any other meds we've heard she was given..her father is a class of his own, but yet what he says is true.

Don't forget people, this lawyer wanted out and they wouldn't let her. She's being forced to continue as her lawyer.

Well, now she's getting treated like "ordinary people". Many people (easily half) who are in a county jail are awaiting trial but either can't afford bail or are denied bail because they are a flight risk. Don't know the reasons this judge gave, but Lindsay does seem like quite a flight risk, considering her history...

Not to worry, kiddo - you'll get time served when the hearing finally comes and won't really spend more time in jail than you would after sentencing. Maybe the judge figures this is the only way to make sure she actually serves 30 days instead of 30 minutes, since the sheriff just ignores judges' sentences in that jurisdiction.

At least she shouldn't be scared of it all this time around, since she's already done a couple of weeks almost in Lynwood and knows the drill. Also she should be pretty much clear of stuff that could cause withdrawal problems. She'll survive quite nicely and it might help motivate her to get control over the drugs, they've done her so much damage. There's still hope she will get it together, preferably sooner than later.

I see that a lot of Lindsay's friends are commenting here tonight with their objections about her being sent directly to jail.

I bet the people that live near the courthouse in Beverly Hills want to make sure Lindsay stays in jail for the full month.

Local teenager Aviv biked to the courthouse from his home a mile away after hearing circling news helicopters early this morning.

"I thought it was a shootout," Aviv said. "I live not far from Beverly Vista School and they can't learn with this going on. People can't sleep. It's all for one person?"

Lindsay caused traffic jams and made a lot of people late for work today. There were THREE helicopters buzzing overhead for this short little court hearing. Crazy, crazy, crazy.

I guess Lindsay is used to all of the paparazzi madness by now. I don't see how she does it. Nothing surprises her anymore probably. She must feel like Jim Carrey in that movie "The Truman Show" all the time.

I have often wondered how many defense lawyers have fantasized about reaching across the table and bitch-slapping the **** out of their clients? But then...there's the house payment, son's Porsche, daughter's implants, girlfriends implants, wife's tushy trim...What wss I thinking Pinocchio?

Wife's grandson was an addict for 4+ years... he lied to everyone, and used every dollar he made or could beg from relatives to drink and/or stuff powder up his nose... he only woke up when he was arrested and put in jail, and then went to rehab for almost a year

Lindsay NEEDS to spend time in jail to dry out, and then she NEEDS to spend the full 90 days (at least!) in rehab to begin to learn how to be a person who can stand up and function without the crutch of drink or drugs
