Amanda Bynes

LET ME OUT!!!

Amanda Bynes will not go down without a fight ... because her lawyer just filed legal docs asking for an emergency hearing to let her loose from the psych ward ... TMZ has learned.

Amanda's lawyer just filed a motion asking the judge to release her from the 2-week forced hospitalization a judge approved Thursday.

There will be a hearing before a judge at the psych ward today at 2PM PT, challenging yesterday's 2-week extension, and Amanda will be present.

Meanwhile Amanda's parents showed up in court this morning in their attempt to win a temporary conservatorship, but they got shut down -- at least temporarily.

The judge said there was no need to rush things because Amanda is already being held for 2 weeks.

The judge wants certain things to happen before he rules on a conservatorship:

 -- He wants a one-on-one with Amanda.

-- He wants the lawyer he appointed to rep Amanda to interview her and then come up with a recommendation.

-- He wants to hear from Amanda's doctors.

-- He wants to see the police file on "the incident" -- sources have told us the incident in question is the driveway fire.

A hearing for the conservatorship was set for August 9.

It's not against the law to be crazy if you have money.

The common denominator with all of these out of control celebrities (Britney, Lindsay and Amanda) is Adderal. It's basically legalized cocaine. It causes paranoia and explains the marijuana smoking- brings you down from the amphetamine high.

She clearly isn't capable for caring for herself. This judge needs to see that, at least I hope he does.

What a horrible, despicable human being this lawyer is. Her parents are worried about her health and safety. This worthless mound of flesh thinks his status in society trumps the care of her BIOLOGICAL PARENTS. Lawyers have destroyed life for people all over the world. I wish they would all fall in to shark-infested waters.

They should Let her go from that facility, and perhaps have someone she trusts take her to another one (only because she court ordered to be in a facility). It's obvious her privacy has been violated there and no doubt will continue to be violated there. TMZ is paying someone to talk. For that reason alone she isn't safe. I hope that she can find some freedom and someone she can trust. This has to be a scary time for her.

Read all of the ignorant posts about mental illness!!

If you really think about this...Amanda Bynes and her family and health practicioners should do a reality show that is more educational and follow her on her journey to a sound mind and well being as Schizophrenia is really mis-understood and highly stigmatized and everyone should get to know this sickness and be compassionate to her.

Amanda loves to act, she really does when whe is well. The involvement may encourage her to stay on meds? Give her hope and purpose and teach people and help families be strong during these trying times with sick family members.

If done right, maybe it could even win awards, if they choose really good producers who will have Amanda best interest at heart.

Leave her alone, there's nothing wrong with her. I'm going to defend her until she's released.
