Lindsay Lohan's lawyer predicts no NY charges
Lindsay Lohan's attorney Mark Jay Heller predicts there will be no case against the "Liz & Dick" actress in connection with an alleged assault in a Manhattan nightclub in November.
Mr. Heller spoke to reporters after signing papers at the courthouse in New York on Monday during Ms. Lohan's scheduled misdemeanor assault hearing, which was actually postponed. The actress was not required to attend Monday's scheduled hearing.
David Bookstaver, the Office of Court Administration spokesman, also confirmed that a criminal complaint had yet to be filed.
Ms. Lohan, 26, was arrested and charged with third-degree assault following an altercation with a woman on Nov. 29. At the time, Mr. Heller said Ms. Lohan was "a victim of someone trying to capture their 15 minutes of fame."
Last month, Los Angeles Superior Court Commissioner Jane Godfrey revoked Ms. Lohan's probation -- a formality whenever there's an allegation of a violation -- in a necklace-theft case.
With three misdemeanors, Ms. Lohan's next court appearance, set for Jan. 15, may determine whether the actress could go to jail for up to 245 days.
