Lindsay Lohan's Lawyer

She Can't Fly

With the Flu

1/30/2013 9:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0130-lindsay-lohan-document
TMZ has obtained the documents Lindsay Lohan's new, imported lawyer filed with the court, claiming she was too sick to appear in court.

The doctor's note was not released because it contains medical info, but attorney Mark Heller did include an article from the New York Post, titled "Flu York City."

We broke the story ... the doctor's note claimed Lindsay couldn't fly to L.A. for the hearing because she had an upper respiratory infection (fyi -- that's not the flu), but we got pics of her shopping up a storm Saturday, the same day she saw the doctor.

Heller's gonna be interesting.

The court had to give this lawyer time to get up to speed on the case, or that would be grounds for an appeal later. So changing lawyers bought Lindsay a little time. But LIndsay's smug-I can barely hold back the laughter-look in the court room, combined with Heller's cousin Vinnie behavior will not end well for Lindsay or Heller.

Anyone that's had the flu, would be pissed she used this as an excuse, the flu makes you wish you were dead... What's the charge for an attorney lying to the judge!

Those two deserve each other. He is putting on this act of being so humble and "grateful" to be allowed in the courtroom and you know he is laughing at the judicial system in CA and so is Linds. For people like her, there are no consequences and it is due to shisters like Heller who keep enabling her.
Since she has no money, how is she paying his bill? Oh, never mind.............................

Can somebody answer this for me and I'm being serious: where does she get her money? Flying first class, shopping sprees, staying at (or trying to) Shutter's, renting a mansion--how can she possibly afford this with so little work?

"the flu, is a respiratory infection caused by the influenza virus"....straight from the Public Health Agency of Canada... So FYI her lawyer saying she "had an upper respiratory infection " is exactly what the Flu is.
