Judge to Lindsay

'I'm Glad to See

You're Feeling Better'

9:27 AM PT
-- 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.

Still no Heller??? I'm bailing on this for awhile, Heller's incompetent attempts at puffery aren't that entertaining...

Chatwal is diffenetly sending Sautner checks.
Anyone else notice he's only around when Blohan is due back in court.

Also the "I am glad to see you are feeling better" was Saunters way of saying, Thanks for the payment

Guys, don't forget Lohan turned down the plea deal. She won't do lock up rehab and won't go to jail.

Holley was in court trying to get a better plea deal when Lohan sandbagged firing her. You know Holley advised her to take the plea.

Per Lohan she want's the trial because thinks the jury would believe her being she such a honest upstanding citizen. Yeah right.

Fifty bucks says Lindsay got out of court and called Shawn Holley.

DON'T DO IT, SHAWN!!!! YOU MADE IT OUT ALIVE. DON'T GO BACK! And from a purely selfish standpoint, we're having too much fun watching Marc Heller.
