In 2010, Lindsay Lohan was in hot water--legally speaking. The actress ultimately found herself behind bars for two weeks, as we all can probably recall.
Now, according to the LA Times, the LA Superior Court judges who oversaw her trials are in some hot water of their own. The state's Commission on Judicial Performance have concluded that judges Marsha Revel and Elden Fox at the Beverly Hills courthouse dealt with Lohan trial matters inappropriately.
Revel was accused of having met with the lawyer who wanted to take over and defend the actress. Fox denied the starlet bail on a petty charge and refused to hear Lohan's lawyer's side of things.
Both of the aforementioned were deemed no-no's by the commission who sided with the LA court spokesman who believed they got caught up in the media frenzy of celebrity litigation... It certainly wouldn't be the first time a legal professional had done so.
Hopefully this paves the path for less partial treatment (for or against) celebrities. But I won't hold my breath.
