Amanda Bynes

Bussed to Court,

Freedom on the Line

8/8/2013 5:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0724_amanda_bynes_03

Amanda Bynes will be in court Friday --TMZ has learned -- and we're told she will mount a ferocious fight for her freedom.

Sources involved in the case tell TMZ ... Amanda will be transported from the psychiatric hospital -- where she's been staying against her will for the last 2 weeks -- to a courthouse where her parents will be asking a judge for a temporary conservatorship.

We're told Amanda will be transported by a hospital vehicle and accompanied by her lawyer.  The only snag would be if Amanda goes off the rails before the hearing.

Sources tell us Amanda will be speaking with the judge -- possibly in chambers -- so he can get a read on her mental competency. 

If the parents prevail, the temporary conservatorship will last until Sept. 30, when a full-blown conservatorship hearing will take place.  If the parents get their way, Amanda will go back to the psych ward for further treatment.

If Amanda prevails, she will walk out of the courthouse a free woman.

We'll be there, so stay tuned.

Judging by her recent behavior, she obviously needs some help. She's not that good of an actress to act that crazy...

Let's hope no changes are made until the meds she is taking have had the proper amount of time to show positive ongoing results.

The media and TMZ conspired against her to make her look like she's crazy. They have to let her out now.

That Judge is her last and best hope (Obi Wan Kenobi) to be treated and to live a normal life. If she goes free, she'll spiral out of control and we'll be reading TMZ reports of her death. That's my fear. The poor girl's life hangs in the balance and treating a mental illness is not quick or easy. It requires time and hospitalization that Amanda won't allow as she's so ill. I'm saying my prayers for her to remain hospitalized and that her parents will be able to help her. I hope Hollywood supports her and that she'll hear from pals and others that can help her along.
