Lindsay Lohan Parties in London as New York Court Date Nears (PHOTOS)

Lilo's Legal Problems
Lawyers are divided on jail time.
A looming court date in New York can’t stop Lindsay Lohan from her partying ways across the Atlantic.

The 26-year-old actress kicked off her weekend by partying into the wee hours of Saturday morning at the trendy Mandarin Oriental Hotel. According to the Daily Mail, the Liz & Dick star later headed to another club, where she partied with friends until 5 AM.

Lohan turned heads during her night out — but it wasn’t for her all-black outfit, which included knee-high platform boots.

While making her way to a nearby car, the star hid behind part of her coat, only to reveal what appears to be a bruised left arm, complete with purple and yellow marks.

Lohan is due stateside on Monday for a court appearance related to an alleged nightclub brawl from November. At the time, the Mean Girls actress was arrested and charged with third-degree misdemeanor assault after allegedly punching a fellow patron at Manhattan hot spot Avenue.

Lohan also has a probation hearing scheduled for Jan. 15 on the west coast, in relation to a separate case.
