Report: Robert Shapiro No Longer Representing Lindsay Lohan

TMZ reports Robert Shapiro is no longer representing Lindsay Lohan. The reason has not yet surfaced.

As to who will represent her today when she has to turn herself in, why does she need a lawyer for that? Doesn't she just show up at the jail?

I never understood what legal function Shapiro was providing in the first place. He announced getting in the case he would only represent her if she did her jail time. What did she need him for if he wasn't going to either appeal or file a motion trying to get the judge to change or at least delay imposition of the sentence? [More...]

According to a California news station, Shapiro and Lindsay met with the judge Monday, without the prosecutor present. That must have been for the motion to withdraw. Had he been seeking any relief for Lindsay, the prosecutor would have to be present.

Lindsay meanwhile is still tweeting. On Monday evening, she wrote:

the only "bookings" that i'm familiar with are Disney Films, never thought that i'd be "booking" into Jail... eeeks

    do I feel like Shapiro's on-line business, "Legal zoom.com (or something like that) was the intended beneficiary of his getting involved in this high publicity case?

    I'm with you; what benefit he provided, or was going to provide, remains a mystery.

    in this comment, here, he needed her and the publicity a lot more than she needed anything he could bring her.
