Court Postpones Lindsay Lohan’s Misdemeanor Hearing

Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: Movies, Legal Issues,

Lindsay LohanIt looks like Lindsay Lohan will be able to party easier in London - for now, anyway.

The troubled starlet's misdemeanor hearing regarding her assault case was postponed today, according to her lawyer Mark Jay Heller. Heller has stated he is confident that there won't be a case against Lohan. The Office of Court Administration spokesman David Bookstaver also confirmed that a criminal complaint has yet to be filed.

Lohan was arrested and charged for third degree misdemeanor assault in November when she got into an altercation with a woman in a New York nightclub. At the time, Heller claimed that the former childhood star was "a victim of someone trying to capture their 15 minutes of fame."

The 26 year-old's next court date is set for January 15. Facing three misdemeanors, she is looking at possibly serving up to 245 days in jail.

Lindsay Lohan Worries Producers with Her Conduct

Lindsay LohanLindsay Lohan's "inability to tell the truth" is putting her latest acting role in jeopardy.

Producers behind the troubled actress' next role, a television biopic of Elizabeth Taylor, are worried by conflicting reports of an alleged altercation with a female at the Chateau Marmont hotel earlier this month.
Lindsay claims she was not at the hotel on April 5, but the woman, Marisa Dugas, has filed a police report accusing her of battery. Two further reports have been given, claiming Lindsay - who was released from probation last month - was present at the party.

A source told RadarOnline.com producers "are extremely concerned about Lindsay's hard partying ways. Here are the facts, since she was formally taken off formal probation, she has been at the Chateau Marmont several times. She was definitely at the nightclub when the assault allegedly took place. However, Lindsay told the producers that she wasn't there, so even if she isn't charged with a crime, her inability to tell the truth is hurting her, period."

The actress was allegedly involved in an altercation with another female during a night out last Thursday, and although the woman filed a battery complaint on Saturday, Lindsay's representative claims she wasn't present.

"Lindsay was at home when this supposedly happened. There are so many holes in this story. At this point it's not a question of 'Did it happen?' because we know it didn't," Lindsay's representative, Steve Honig, told E! News.

Steve has previously questioned why the woman waited until Saturday to go to the sheriff department's at West Hollywood Station to file a complaint: "You have to wonder about someone who calls the media before the police."

The incident allegedly occurred at the Standard Hotel on Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles.

Eva Longoria Says Sheridan Case is a ‘Stain’ on Desperate Housewives

Eva LongoriaEva Longoria says the trial between Nicollette Sheridan and Desperate Housewives creator Marc Cherry has left a "stain" on the show's legacy.

The 37-year-old actress was shocked her former co-star's claims for battery and wrongful termination against Marc and ABC ever ended up in court and she is sad it is something the series will be associated with.

"I was surprised that there was even a trial and it went that far. I love Nicollette and I love Marc Cherry, and I love our work environment. It's a stain on our legacy as a hit show. It was just unfortunate, the whole thing," she told Katie Couric on Good Morning America.

Nicollette claimed Marc deliberately assaulted during an on-set dispute in 2008, an allegation he denied, and after she complained to ABC bosses about the incident her character Edie Britt was killed off. Her battery claim was thrown out of court, while her wrongful termination case ended in a mistrial in March after the jurors failed to reach a majority verdict.
