Lindsay Lohan will probably be happy about this. The judge that Lindsay and her family were certain had it in for her has just removed herself from the case after allegations she improperly contacted “participants and experts” involved. Lawyers complained that Judge Marsha Revel was taking it upon herself to make contact with people from the Morningside Recovery rehab facility, without notifying the the lawyers in advance. Ultimately, Lindsay’s lawyer convinced Judge Revel to send Lindsay to UCLA.
Sources in the D.A.’s Office tell TMZ … prosecutor Danette Meyers was the one who raised the objection with Judge Revel on Friday. We’re told Judge Revel voluntarily recused herself before Meyers filed legal papers to have her removed.
Judge Revel has been overseeing Lindsay’s legal battle, and sentenced her to almost three months in prison and three months in rehab for violating her probation relating to a 2007 DUI arrest earlier this year. Judge Elden Fox has now taken over the case.
What a mess. And here is where the Lohan-fanatics come out yelling “See, Lindsay was framed!”
