Is Lindsay Lohan about to receive a “Get Out of Rehab” card?
She’s certainly about to get something from Elden Fox, the new judge in her 2007 DUI case.
Judge Fox will be issuing a ruling sometime Tuesday afternoon, Los Angeles Superior Court spokesman Allan Parachini told TheWrap late Monday. Parachini had no further details -- except that the Judge will make the mystery ruling from the Beverly Hills courthouse where most of the drama in this arm of the greater Lohan saga has taken place.
What we do know is that medical authorities at UCLA, where Lindsay has been serving her court ordered 90-day treatment stint since her release from a two week jail stint on Aug. 2, think the actress was misdiagnosed as both an addict and suffering from ADHD.
As TheWrap reported before, the doctors don’t believe Lohan benefits in any way from staying as an in-patient at UCLA for three months, as the previous judge in the case ordered. Judge Marsha Revel recused herself from the case on Aug. 10 after the Los Angeles District Attorney’s had some serious concerns about the way she was conducting herself in the Lohan matter.
TheWrap has also learned that Shawn Chapman Holley, the “Machete” actress’ lawyer, was in Judge Fox’s chambers on Monday. A person familiar with the case told TheWrap that one topic was conditions of Lindsay’s post-inpatient rehab treatment program.
A probation modification hearing on Lohan’s process and consideration for earlier release from UCLA is scheduled before Fox, with Holley and Deputy D.A. Danette Meyer -- but not LiLo -- for Aug. 25.
Add it all up and the result seems clear: Lindsay Lohan might get out of rehab this week or next week, but she’s definitely leaving rehab well before the 90 days she was supposed to spend there.
Like you didn’t see that coming?
