-- 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.

You know damn well if it doesn't go her way Lohan will be screaming inadequate counsel.


I just saw how they got turned away from 2 hotels. How funny. Lohan is black listed all over town and not doing any better in NYC.


Keep up those shopping sprees with the IRS watching. Moron.

This is in reply to Reinita, I don't think it's working to reply on here, It's not showing up for me so I will also put my comment here too.

Í actually agree with you, This lawyer thing seems like it was forced on her... I don't think she is an unintelligent person, she's socially stupid but she is smart and trust me I am no fan of LiLo, I think she's a troubled girl and needs guidance and I'm not one of those sappy people who look at her like a victim..she truly is a product of her environment and needs some direction..I no longer want her jailed and get zero satisfaction seeing her continue to fail but my goodness why on earth did she pic this lawyer.

Heller's low-budget deal with Lindsay probably includes al the media exposure he can get - hence the news conference.

Since the judge is retiring March 1/13, WHY didn't she give Lindsay a lecture?? The 'feeling better' comment just wasn't good enough.
