-- 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.

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.

Thats what lawyers do say nothing. Heller putz or not, look what he has to work with.

It's very hard to spin around what Lohan is caught on camera doing.


Hey Sautner is done and so is Holley. Lohan is somone elses problem.


Lohan got her stall which was always her intent. Firing Holley got her another 2 weeks that was today. Heller is getting time to review his 'new' case as he knew he would get.


Whatever ever stall 'motions' they can come up with by March 1st remains to be seen.

I think Linds knows Heller is an idiot, but he is probably the only lawyer who will represent her for free. Heller and Lindsay seem to be cut from the same cloth. The prosecutors are probably doing a happy dance this very moment, lol.

Hope the judge grows a backbone and puts this tramp where she belongs for about 5 years, how many chances would you are I have? Put her ASS in jail! I don't care if she kills herself with all her crazy actions, but I don't want her to kill someone else that just happens to get in her way.

We all know these cases are a slam dunk at trial because of witness testimony and police report and traffic collision report also 911 tape and victims testimony. Gavin will be called to testify so the pv is a done deal. To me it sounded like the goblin is hedging toward taking a plea deal that keeps her out of jail.
