To recap, LiLo was behind the wheel in a car chase in pursuit of her former assistant’s mother, Michelle Peck, that ended with Lindsay’s arrest for DUI and cocaine possession. A woman in Peck’s car, Tracie Rice, and three men in Lindsay’s vehicle decided to sue the actress for an undisclosed amount, claiming they were emotionally distressed and in the case of the men, kidnapped.
Three years later, the suits have been consolidated and a trial date of January 31, 2011 has been set, according to RadarOnline, giving Lindsay until then to settle, or let a judge decide if she owes damages. It could prove a tough battle for LiLo, as Rice’s lawyer has said: “My client…thought she was going to die that night and wants Ms. Lohan to be held accountable.”
Do you think Lindsay should settle up – or leave it up to a judge? Go ahead and play legal analyst in the comments.
