Lindsay Lohan Facing Hearing
Lindsay Lohan must face a two-hour deposition hearing next month.
The 'Mean Girls' actress faces further questions about a 2007 car chase after Tracie Rice - a passenger in the vehicle being pursued by the star - launched a civil action against her, which is due to go to trial next month.
The incident involved the 23-year-old star allegedly jumping into a car containing three male passengers and driving at high speed down the Pacific Coast Highway, pursuing the vehicle which Tracie was travelling in with Michelle Peck, whose daughter is the actress' former assistant.
Although Lindsay - who was jailed for driving under the influence (DUI) following the incident - has already faced questioning about what happened, legal representatives for Tracie, who is suing for assault, negligence and intentional infliction of emotional, argue that she hasn't answered essential questions about her substance abuse and if she feels remorseful.
Her attorney Paul Hoffman said: "This case is about somebody who claims to be sober and had cocaine and blew a DUI for alcohol."
However, Lindsay's attorney Ed McPherson insisted the hearing is more focused on "embarrassing" his client, claiming she had previously sat for a day-long deposition during which she was subjected to questions which included whether she had seen a recent episode of '60 Minutes' featuring Al Pacino.
McPherson argued: "It's clear they don't need answers to these questions.
"My client is undergoing weekly drug testing, alcohol classes and trying to film a movie. I think it's a bit of overkill in this case."
However, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Richard A. Stone insisted the 23-year-old actress must attend a hearing next month.
Lindsay recently had her probation extended and was ordered to wear an alcohol-monitoring SCRAM bracelet after failing to keep up with court-ordered alcohol education classes.
