Lindsay Lohan

I Won't Be In Court ...

I'm Sick

EXCLUSIVE

0129_lindsay_lohan_soho_shopping_launchLindsay Lohan is gonna be in a heap of trouble tomorrow ... we've learned she will NOT be in an L.A. court Wednesday as required, because she claims she's sick ... but pictures prove otherwise.

We've learned Lindsay's new lawyer, Mark Heller, submitted documents notifying the judge she's too ill to fly.  Heller submitted a note from a Park Avenue doctor who says Lindsay has an upper respiratory infection and can't fly for her own safety as well as the safety of the public.

Heller also submitted an article from the New York Post from January 11, reporting that a flu epidemic has hit the Big Apple.

But take a look at the pictures showing Lindsay on an all-day shopping spree in SoHo Saturday -- the same day the doctor allegedly examined her. She's even smoking ... which doesn't seem like great idea for someone with a respiratory infection.

Interesting ... the judge hasn't even approved Heller -- a New York lawyer -- to appear in a California court on Lindsay's behalf and already there are shenanigans.

As for Lindsay ... she's in trouble.  The judge could issue a warrant for her arrest if the excuse proves bogus.

I hear the jails/prisons have excellent healthcare - so issue that bench warrant for failure to appear and let Lynwood take care of her and nurse her back to health!!! If she knew what a real job was she would be smart enough to know that you wait till the day your supposed to be there to call in sick!!! LOSER!!!!

I would ask to see a copy of her airline ticket. If they say she was going to fly private, then she could still fly, since no public involved...

Will anybody be surprised when this girl either ends up in jail (because at this point its only a matter of time) or dead of an over dose? With her substantial track record, all roads lead to deep trouble. Check yourself before you wreck yourself & don't become another drug induced Hollywood statistic.

She should have flown back to LA a couple of weeks ago to make sure she'd be in town for court. What a liar!

The I am too sick to appear excuse will work...... once. Then her new lawyers excuse that he has not had enough time to prepare will work.... once. Then, she will have to appear. So, her actual day in court is probably months away... but it is inevitable.

What will probably happen tomorrow is; Shawn will be relieved as her lawyer by the judge and the New York lawyer accepted subject to being sponsored by a California lawyer. A new hearing date will be set and it will probably be far enough into the future so that her new lawyer will have time to prepare thus negating that excuse.

There will be no bench warrant because New York will not arrest her and process an extradition request for misdemeanor offenses thus it is a moot action by the California court. Even if it was done that would set up the need for an immediate bail hearing which is mandatory for misdemeanor offenses and I am sure she has someone in her pocket who would put up the money.

What might also be in the cards, well she could fire the New York lawyer just before the hearing date and ask for a public defender or hire another lawyer. Then play the I haven't been given enough time card again.

Lindsay, when you finally reach the end of your rope, tie a knot in it and hang on. My guess is that the result of all this is not going to be much fun for you.

Welp, I predict, if it so happens that Sautner has had enough and actually issues a bench warrant, Smeghan will be on the first flight out of NYC to London to go visit Max again. Oh wait, she can't fly because of her chest infection, PFFFTTTTTTTT. When is LAPD and the LA courts going to get tired of being the laughing stock of the rest of the world?
