Lindsay Lohan

I Won't Be In Court ...

I'm Sick

1/29/2013 1:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

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.

Grow the hell up, saying you're sick may have worked when you were 6 but not now and definitely not to a judge. If you're not in the hospital with something serious then you're well enough to make it to court for your hearing. I hope this judge sees the BS she's spewing and just puts out an arrest warrant on her druggie ass.

What reallllly realllly p*sses me off about Lohan is that if any one of us would have pulled half of the crap she's done, we'd be peeking out from behind bars for years. Just today I read that some woman with no priors was convicted of a felony and got 6 years for stealing a $50 gift card and trying to use it at 7-11. Gotta love a justice system that applies the law equally.

Everyone knows she is lying about having an upper respiratory infection. She would have been better off saying that she has a very severe case of chlamydia and cannot be there tomorrow. At least that's more believable...

The next excuse for not showing in court? The "I'm broke, the IRS took everything, I can't afford a flight to CA".

This is the lawyer's attempt to prevent Lindsey from testing positive for drugs.

Lindsay Lohan ‘Too Sick’ For Court Appearance, But Source Says She’s Been Partying Up A Storm

Lindsay Lohan is taking a huge legal gamble by claiming she is too sick to appear in her court-ordered pre-trial hearing on Wednesday, but has exclusively learned she has been partying non-stop recently!

“For someone claiming to be sick, Lindsay’s partying hasn’t slowed down in the least. Lindsay has been partying and boozing non-stop in New York City,” a source tells exclusively.

“Lindsay has been hanging out with her usual cast of shady friends, and they have been wreaking havoc at swanky hotels in Manhattan. Lindsay doesn’t appear to be sick, and photos reveal that she doesn’t look like someone too gravely ill to travel.”

The Mean Girls star was ordered to appear in a Los Angeles courthouse hearing for charges that she lied to cops in connection with the horrific car accident she was involved with last summer in Santa Monica.

Furthermore, if Lindsay, 26, isn’t in court tomorrow morning, prosecutors will “immediately ask Judge Stephanie Sautner to issue a warrant for Lohan’s arrest.

“This isn’t the first time Lindsay has pulled a stunt like this. She claimed her passport was stolen in Cannes, France and failed to appear for an appearance for her DUI case,” a law enforcement insider revealed.

“This isn’t Lindsay’s first trip to the rodeo, and she is just making a total mockery of the legal system.”

Complicating matters is Lindsay’s long suffering criminal defense attorney, Shawn Holley, has formally filed legal do***ents requesting that she be permitted to withdraw her representation of the troubled starlet.

Judge Saunter must sign off on it, and it appears that Lilo’s new lawyer, Mark Heller, who is based in New York City, is having trouble obtaining a license to practice in California.

Heller has a checkered past and was suspended from practicing law for several years after being found guilty of professional misconduct.

If Judge Sautner determines that Lindsay violated terms of her probation from her necklace theft case for getting arrested last summer, she could face up to 245 days in jail.
