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.

Dina Lohan told the New York Daily News that Lindsay is messed up because of her father. I guess she didn't realize she is publicly admitting LIndsay is messed up. Anyway, the blame game is in full gear, and the timing of the article makes me think Dina is trying to get sympathy for LIndsay before her court date in California.

I think congratulations are in order for Ms. Lohan. LL's ever expanding criminal resume ... I mean record, has finally earned her a 'career criminal' status!


You know you have issues when you need different lawyers in each US State you visit! I hope she enjoyed her trip across the pond, because it may be her last, if she is convicted of her latest faux paus. There aren't too many places that will grant entry to a criminal with a violent crime conviction.

Seems to me she was supposed to appear and didn't. Unless the court told her she didn't need to be there due to continued investigation. Sounds like she wasn't aware of the delay which would put her in voilation. Thank you Alia for your post. Explains why she wasn't to have to show up.

and another bullet dodged due to having copious amounts of cash for a legal defense. What a waste and a total joke you are Lindsay. No longer considered a working actress, but a working joke in every household. Good job!

LMAO at that 'add on' press release by LL's lawyer. Did everyone hear the crowd break out in roaring laughter after he said Ms. Lohan was talented and good looking?


That 'lawyer' was a joke! The way he speaks reminds me of the 'Meathead' character from the old "All in the Family" sitcom!

"That's not my thing anymore. Umm like I went out with some friends to a few clubs in London, and I was like, wait a minute, why is everyone leaving, it's only 4:30am. So now I don't hang out with those old people anymore"
