Lindsay Lohan skipping court because she says she's sick when she's not
You are no doubt on the edge of your seat for the runup to Lindsay Lohan's court date in L.A. on Wednesday, but it's even bigger than you think, because Lindsay's not going to be there. She had her attorney Mark Heller send the judge a note saying she won't be there because she's sick in New York. Since it's L.A., that's probably going to totally be okay.
TMZ says Heller sent a note from a doctor who examined Lohan on Saturday, saying she has an upper respiratory infection likely brought on by the flu, which is rampant in the Big Apple right now. That's puts her in no-fly status for the time being. Except TMZ has photos of her out shopping and smoking cigarettes the very same day, so she must be feeling better, right?
It will be interesting to see if the judge budges, because Heller isn't even approved to represent Lohan in California, since he's a New York kind of guy. It really is a brilliant strategy on Lindsay's part, because as Jesse Pinkman said on Breaking Bad, you don't want a criminal lawyer, you want a criminal lawyer.
