Lindsay Lohan

Facing New Lawsuit

Assault & Battery

7/21/2011 6:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan dished out 8 to 10 seconds of pain when she attacked a Betty Ford employee last year ... so says the alleged victim who's filing a lawsuit against the actress -- but her story appears to have one MAJOR inconsistency.   

Dawn Holland -- who now goes by Dawn Bradley -- is all set to file the legal docs today ... in which she claims Lohan was combative and violent when she tried to give the actress a breathalyzer test at the rehab center back in  December ... after Lohan had allegedly snuck off the property to go boozing. 

In the lawsuit, Holland claims Lohan grabbed her right wrist and began "twisting and pulling it for 8-10 seconds."

But here's the rub -- back when Dawn filed her initial incident report with the BFC, she says Lindsay "grabbed [her] right hand," but NEVER mentioned the 8-10 wrist "twist" that allegedly contributed to her injuries.


Holland -- who was eventually fired from Betty Ford Center -- claims she suffered "great mental, physical and nervous pain and suffering" from the alleged assault and battery.

Dawn is demanding AT LEAST $1 million to make things right.

We contacted Lindsay's lawyer.  So far ... no comment.

Dawn why don't you get a job and stop trying to get money from Lindsay. Did you spend all the money you already made off of her? Yes I know that good rims are costly but perhaps not the wisest way to invest your money.

These days, in medical malpractice cases, defense attorneys often throw out "HIPAA violation" to intinidate witnesses. However, that just doesn't hold up. The violation action would have to come from the federal government, and truth is, they don't pursue these things --ever. One of the reasons such things are not pursued is there are many excetions within HIPAA that allow for disclosure, making it nearly impossible to prove the essential elements of a crime.

This woman shot herself in the foot by telling people about this and giving do***ents to TMZ. She has no case and will never win anything. She'll end up with her own butt thrown in jail over this! She's lied and flip flopped on this story too many times. I hope she likes her jail cell!

Lindsay can sue Betty Ford clinic for millions if she wants and she has a good case. Holland sold confidential information on a patient which is illegal and she should face charges. Andy I think Holland looks more like a beat up Joe Frazier not Forrest Griffin, but I know you are probably talking about LiLO. How can this beast of a woman claim that Lindsay hurt her.

I guess the moral of the story is that if you are going to be a major ash holio celebrity, you can expect lawsuits, Cocaine, DUI, probation violation and theft charges whether you are guilty or not.

If lilo ho sued BF, then they would just drag out how she beat up Hawley after sneaking out and breaking the rules.

Does lilo ho want to go there? NO

She needs to stay home and STFU and not get into anymore trouble.

For a million dollars Lindsay should've ripped her arm off and beat her with it! This lawsuit is ridiculous. Not saying Lindsay isn't at fault as well but a million dollars??? This woman changed her story several times and then said she wouldn't cooperate with the police because she didn't want Lindsay charged. Can she get any more pathetic? Her and Lindsay should be best friends they're equally looney!!

I've listened to the 911 recording of their altercation, and I have to say it tends to back up Dawn Holland's story.

Her downfall will be that she sold the report to TMZ and then changed her story over and over

None of her stories have been consistent. She's clearly a liar who needs money. If she hadn't been so media hungry in the first place, she would still have her job.
