-- 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 just wish the judge could come up with some iron clad legal loophole, that would allow Lilo to be legally executed today, right now, give her her meal, and then the needle, so we never have to hear or speak of her ever again

Linds only has 1 1/2 months to save up for the trial - plane fare, hotel, food, booze, etc. Too bad she pissed off Charlie Sheen - he probably would have lent her money to get by.

Ok so all that happened was the judge approved the sleazy NY atty and set another court date?? Why did LiLo even need to be there? No wonder she tried to skip. It did I miss something?? And LOVE the atty trying to schmooze the judge. Where did she find him? The gutters??

I cringed when the NY lawyer kept saying "Judge". The proper court etiquette is always "your honor". Very unimpressed with him.

Oh wow! Just going by short video clip, her new lawyer has the personality of a tree stump. I've hoped in the past that Lindsey would get her act together but now- I say revoke her probation, put her sorry butt in jail for at the very least several months. This girl needs time to do some major soul searching. Always blaming someone else. I've had it with this has been. Take responsibility for your actions!!! Sick sick sick of Lindsey!!!
