Lindsay Lohan is due back in a Los Angeles courtroom today for a hearing hich will determine when her trial on three misdemeanour charges will begin.
A judge ordered the actress to appear after questioning her New York lawyer’s competency to defend her during a hearing last month.
The judge’s comments were directed at Mark Heller’s knowledge of criminal law in California, where he is not licensed to practice.
A trial on charges that Lohan drove recklessly and then lied to police and obstructed officers from their duties after a June car crash could begin later this week.
Lohan has pleaded not guilty. She faces up to 245 days in jail if a judge determines her conduct was a violation of her probation in a 2011 case.
