-- Heller is currently inside the courthouse and is expected to come out to address the media ... because he can't help himself.

Judge Stephanie Sautner couldn't help herself during Lindsay Lohan's hearing this AM, quipping, "I'm glad to see you're feeling better" -- referring to the fact that she was almost a no-show because her doctor said she had an upper respiratory infection -- which apparently didn't get in the way of her shopping spree last Saturday.

Lindsay reluctantly told the judge in her criminal case she's down with saying goodbye to longtime lawyer Shawn Holley ... and put her fate in the hands of New York attorney Mark Heller, who arrived to court today with a rabbit's foot on his bag for good luck.

A sleepy Lindsay hesitated when Judge Sautner asked if she was comfortable with the change.  Lindsay qualified her answer by telling the judge she was OK with it today, but the judge wanted to know about today and tomorrow ... Lindsay said it was.

Judge Sautner gave Heller permission to rep Lindsay in the lying-to-cops case and Heller then tried to turn on the charm, telling the judge they had a NYC connection since she was once a Big Apple detective.  The judge fired back that flattery would get him nowhere fast.

The judge also laid down the ominous fact -- that Lindsay could be found not guilty in the lying case, and her probation in the jewelry case could still be violated since the standard of proof is lower.

The Judge set March 1 as the next hearing.

FYI -- for whoever cares, Lindsay wore Chanel to court today with Celine shades ... and Louboutins on her feet, obviously.

I SO want her to be given some REAL jail time - but unfortuntely, I just don't think it's going to happen.

Our ONLY hope is that Heler is not allowed to serve as her lawyer - at which point she'll be lawyerless.

Let's just pray Lindsay can survive that fake upper respiratory infection. They're pretty serious. Manti Te'o's fake girlfriend almost died of a fake upper respiratory infection.

The bail bondsman is in the house too, as usual. Yeah I have a bail bondsman on speed dial.

Aside from her legs being 25 shades lighter than her arms, I actually like her outfit (black dress and sunglasses).

How she ever thought for a second the judge was goign to buy that she was sick is a complete mystery, I wish she's sayed away and been a no-show. That would have triggered a bench warrant for her arrest.

I'd love to see Sautner have her arrested on the PV, just for another arrest on the record and mug shot.

Let's all say "hi, Shawn Holley!" because I'm sure she's sitting at home laughing her ass off and watching the live feed with us!
