Lindsay Lohan could still go to jail even though she appeared for her court day on Wednesday.
According to CanIndia, after attempting to get out of appearing in court, the troubled actress showed up in a black Chanel dress and appeared before Judge Stephanie Sautner.
"Glad to see you're feeling better," Sautner said after her new lawyer Mark Heller admitted, "I know there was some drama with her appearing today."
The judge set a pre-trial hearing for March 1, which Lohan is not required to appear for it. She then ruled that she must be present for the actual trail, which will take place on March 18.
Judge Sautner also said that Lohan could still be jailed for violating her probation, even if a jury finds her not guilty of lying because the standard of proof is lower.
Lohan's probation remains revoked because she allegedly lied to police about driving her car during a crash last June, CanIndia reported. She is facing three misdemeanor counts "involving the car crash after being charged for resisting, obstruction, providing false information to a police officer and reckless driving."
The drama keeps surrounding the 26-year-old actress. She dumped her former longtime lawyer, Shawn Holley, for Heller, which some think she should have stayed with him.
"Lindsay is absolutely making a mistake. She had a terrific lawyer, Shawn Holley, who represented her in several cases," Hollywood Life's editor-in-chief Bonnie Fuller said on FOX411's In the Zone. "I mean Lindsay's in court all of the time. Shawn has managed to keep her out of jail for the most part and Shawn knew everything about Lindsay's cases. Now Lindsay fired her."
And now, the "Liz & Dick" actress is suing her 6126 Collection, seeking more than $1.1 million and renewed control of the brand's trademarks, according to CBS News.
"The breach of contract, fraud and trademark infringement lawsuit filed Thursday in a Los Angeles federal court seeks royalties and other payments from D.N.A.M. Apparel Industries LLC.," the report explained. "The suit claims D.N.A.M. has failed to pay Lohan more than $1 million in royalties and has not abided by an agreement to seek the "Liz & Dick" star's input on merchandise. D.N.A.M. also agreed to promote and expand the 6126 into swimwear, cosmetics and other apparel and open a showroom in New York, according to the lawsuit.
"The case asks a judge to order the company to stop using the 6126 name and trademarks. Lohan named the clothing line after the birthdate of her idol, Marilyn Monroe -- June 1, 1926."© 2013 Fashion & Style.com All rights reserved. Do not reproduce without permission.
