Lindsay Lohan

Settles Up with 2007

Lindsay Lohan
has finally called it even with the 3 men she allegedly abducted and took on a wild drug-fueled car chase through Santa Monica back in 2007 -- the same chase that resulted in her second infamous DUI arrest.

Attorneys for both sides confirm the lawsuit was settled and a dismissal notice will be filed in court soon. The terms of the settlement have not been disclosed.

TMZ broke the story ... the three men sued Lindsay over the incident in 2008, claiming an intoxicated Lindsay hijacked a car in which they were passengers following a party in Malibu. According to the suit, Lindsay then began an insane ride down the PCH "endangering all of their lives."

The suit claimed Lindsay blew through red lights, eventually ending up at the Santa Monica Police Department where she was arrested for DUI, her second DUI bust in less than 90 days. Cops said they also found cocaine.

Lohan pled guilty to being under the influence of cocaine and no contest to reckless driving and driving with a blood alcohol level of .08 or higher. She eventually served one day in jail.

Days after the incident, one of the men told TMZ, "It was pretty much, like, the worst night of ... my whole summer."

I gotta cut Help some slack on this one. The majority of lawsuits in this country settle without ever making it to court.

According to the psychic on the radio today Lindsay will go to jail again this year and won't get clean for 2 years. This made me laugh. P

HELP THIS YOUNG WOMAN:
"Unless you have filed a lawsuit to make a very important point concerning an issue critical to society at large, it is almost always a good idea to settle out of court. Parties to lawsuits are encouraged and urged to settle their differences even from the very beginning of litigation.

Good points...settling doesn't mean guilt.
-
Also, this was a *civil* case, not a *criminal* case.
.
Out-of-court settlements are *civil* courts and don't mean guilt, or liability.
.
In *criminal* court cases the settlement would be a *plea bargain*...and often does mean guilt.
.
Civil courts deal with liability, criminal courts deal with guilt.
.
Defendants such as Lindsay, with lawyer advice, will offer settlement amount so they can get back to their life and career, and avoid several months of filling out legal paperwork and driving back and forth to court and sitting through long, boring court sessions.
.
It's no admission of guilt or liability, in civil cases an out-of-court settlement doesn't legally carry an admission of liability.
.
.
Bottom line either way...you don't deserve a big pile of money for supposedly "suffering" through a short wild car ride that you would have gladly done back in high school with your buddies :D

Many cases are settled out of court, BUT in this case the guys should not have settled, cause we are talkin about reckless ass lindsay here, if they all keep settling she never will understand what PUNISHMENT IS FOR POOR BEHAVIOR and she needs that...like yesterday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

OMG if those three guys had jumped into Lindsay's vehicle and did what she did you know what they would call it? Car Jacking, yeah, they would have been so far behind bars daylight wouldn't hit them. She keeps getting free rides literally, makes me sick.

Lohan settled out of court for an undisclosed amount because she was dead ass wrong and knew it. That simple.


Lohan is a friggin moron, and does not have a brain to bless herself with. She is a 26 year old grown woman. She cried wolf so many times it's beyond laughable.


Lohan not getting hired after this fiasco is the least of her worrys. Lawsuits will happen and it's all her own doing and fault.
