-- 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.

This attorney is about as smooth as ground glass and as subtle as a heart attack. Way to open. I rep her in the case in NY. Sheeeesh! calling attention to more cases off the bat. He seems stupid but maybe it is just his accent that makes him sound stupid...embarrassing

What a skumbag pos this Heller is. That was so sickening. He makes her out to be like Mother Theresa. She's a great beauty with great talent. Oh gawd. She's a junkie and it sounds like the prosecution is not backing down. Jail IS the best result for her, the prosecution, the defense, and the public.

oh dear god.... where do you start:

LIE: THERE IS NO SNOW on the ground here its a balmy 50 degrees as of 2:15pm

Fact: She want'ts Shawn back.

LIE: Bitch has no flu; if she was that contagious it would of been excused. If not I say the entire flight sues her for infecting them with her "illness".

Fact: She has a bigger idiot representing her than she is in fact he is as delusional as her family is...

Fact: bitch is going to try rehab AGAIN for the umptenth time... watch she is back in rehab come March...

This dramatic change in a person's appearance with this enlargement of the face is many times due to the shutting down or dysfunction of liver and kidneys

Why didn't any of the paps ask the Heller Rat why was Lindsay shopping with her john when she was sooooooo sick and had a Dr's note for the same day....and she was smoking? Why didn't anyone speak up when Heller said she was sick but came out of respect for the Judge.

I don't understand how the case was transferred to Sautner from the first judge and now Sautner says she is retiring and another judge will handle the case.

anyone think she'll be changing lawyers again before her March court date? there must be a more competent lawyer in LA than this Heller guy. One of her many johns will pay the legal fees for her.

Although no one can deny she has done all this to herself, still must suck to be universally hated.

Any normal human would hide away until they had some semblance of control over their lives.

Not Linds thought. She just keeps putting one fvcked up foot in front of the other on the way to her next train wreck.
