Lindsay Lohan

Dodges Legal Bullet ...

For Now

breaking news

1214_lindsay_lohan_01Lindsay Lohan was a no-show in a NYC courtroom this morning for her nightclub assault case -- but, luckily for her ... prosecutors delayed the proceedings.

Lohan was scheduled to make her first court appearance for the nightclub fight she got into with a woman back in November. LiLo allegedly punched the woman in her face, then got arrested (below) and booked for 3rd degree misdemeanor assault.

This morning prosecutors announced, "The investigation into this case is continuing."

Good thing, since Lindsay never made it to the courthouse, and it was touch and go if she'd make it anyway ... since she's been hanging in London for the last week.

Attorney Mark Heller -- who says he's representing Linds -- was there and claims she's "a victim of someone trying to capture their 15 minutes of fame." He also said a psychic told Lindsay Lohan she will have a great 2013 ... so there's that.

Mark Heller Is Not Lindsay Lohan’s Attorney, Says Lindsay’s Camp

Posted on November 30th, 2012 at 1:01 pm

Although controversial attorney Mark Heller is speaking to the press on behalf of Lindsay Lohan, a representative from Lindsay’s team tells RumorFix exclusively, “Lindsay’s legal counsel remains her longtime attorney Shawn Holley. Any reports of her being represented by Mark Heller are not accurate.”

Mark, who was Jon Gosselin’s divorce attorney, is talking to everyone from E! to ABC News about Lindsay.

He told ABC that Lindsay “will be totally exonerated” of the assault charges in New York after a barroom brawl and is “a victim of someone trying to capture their 15 minutes of fame.”

But it may appear Mark Heller is doing just that himself.

When we told Heller’s office that Lindsay’s people say he isn’t her attorney, they told us, “They [Lindsay's camp] should check with the courts.”

Lindsay’s father, Michael Lohan, told RumorFix he is also concerned about the reports about Mark, who is the father of Lindsay’s “promoter” Michael Heller.

A rep for the Hellers tells RumorFix, Mark was called by Lindsay during her arrest and he’s the one who got her out and Mike is not a promoter, but rather Lindsay’s former manager and remains a friend.

The Manhattan Madam, whose real name is Kristin Davis, wrote an open letter to Lindsay on Friday asking her to: “Fire Your Attorney.”

Kristin writes, “While we don’t personally know each other, I feel compelled to inform you about your choice in attorneys, Mark Jay Heller. If you care about your freedom- you will fire him immediately and retain competent representation.”

She continues, “Mark Heller used to represent me. He did nothing to get me out of jail when I was arrested because he was more concerned with generating press for himself.”

According to an article in the New York Times in May 2010, “He has been disparaged and roundly dressed down by clients and judges alike, called a ‘menace to the public,’ ‘shockingly cavalier and abusive’ and rife with ‘puffery’ by a disciplinary panel that recommended his five-year suspension in the mid-1990s.

NIC-HOLE,NIC-HOLE... When I said your little precious Borderline Crackie will be jailed for 2 months, I was referring to her LA case. In 8 days, your little Borderline Crackie's VOP hearing will be scheduled and when it's finally heard, she will be jailed for 2 months. So I say let the Borderline Crackie booze it up until the VOP hearing, it will be more entertaining to the viewing public. You need to get down on your knees and pray NIC-HOLE that this new judge gives her 2 weeks to surrender like Revel did-so that she can detox on her own terms-and not order her immediately to jail. Because if that happens, she will detox as a prisoner and social media will post every disgusting detail. And keep in mind, NIC-HOLE, that since your precious little Borderline Crackie is an etoh/drug addicted Borderline Crackie, she will always be a F.U.C.K UP. ALWAYS. That's who she is and what she does. It's that simple. You just can't handle the truth.

DUIna's new lies:

[He's addicted to cocaine]
So are you. And Linds and AA Aliana, too.
You just stole $40,000.00 from Linds, plus
all her cocaine - just last month.

[He raped me in 1986 and Linds is traumatized]
You can't claim rape when you were on top,
and started with oral. Linds was a fetus then, so
her "trauma" came from your lies.

[Linds is messed up because of my ex-husband]
According to everything you've ever quacked, he was never there - always in prison, so it's YOUR fault, single "Mom". YOU homeschooled Linds and taught her to lie, cheat, steal, blame, accuse.... AA Aliana, too. Did you teach Technofaeg Lohan how to launder cash to hide from the IRS?

Research your fiction first. You're slipping, DUIna.

And little green men came and took Lindsay Hostage, in London! She witnessed them making crop circles. So that is why she is not here today your Honor. "They've got her", cried Mark Heller her lawyer.
In stumbles Lindsay right before court adjourned and Heller cries out, "SEE, LOOK WHAT THEY DID TO HER FACE"!
