Lindsay Lohan`s lawyer ‘can’t quit the case’, says Judge

New York: Lindsay Lohan’s lawyer Shawn Chapman Holley has been ordered by Judge Marsha Revel that she cannot leave the case without representation.

Holley quit the case following Tuesday`s hearing where Lohan was sentenced to 90 days in jail.

"The judge told Holley she can`t quit and leave Lindsay without representation. She has to stay on the case until Lindsay has a substitution of attorney filed with the court," a news daily quoted a source as saying.

The source added Holley was frustrated with Lohan because "she won`t take or follow advice. She is not returning calls, and so they haven`t been able to set up meetings with her and a psychologist for her court-ordered psychiatric evaluation."

So until Lohan starts complying with Holley, or finds a new lawyer in the next few days, her chances of appealing her sentence look thin.

However, a rep for Holley declined to comment on this issue.
