Lohan Gains Support In Court Video Ban

LINDSAY LOHAN is a step closer to having video cameras banned from court when she gives a deposition testimony in her car-crash lawsuit. The actress is being sued by victim Raymundo Ortega for crashing her Mercedes-Benz into his red van in Hollywood in October 2005, after allegedly drinking at celebrity hotspot The Ivy. And Lohan's attorneys have been attempting to have plans for the star to give evidence on videotape scrapped, amid fears the footage could later be sold on for a large amount of cash. In November Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Michael Stern dismissed their argument and ruled Lohan must give video evidence. But now a three-judge panel of California's Second District Court of Appeal has demanded Stern explain his decision. A hearing has been set for 16 March (08) to determine whether cameras will be allowed or not. The 21-year-old has filed her own countersuit against Ortega, alleging he and a number of unspecified defendants caused the accident. A trial date of 07 April (08) has been set for both cases.
