Lindsay Lohan ordered to LA court

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Lindsay Lohan has been ordered to attend a probation hearing on Thursday that could result in jail time for reportedly missing alcohol education classes imposed for a 2007 drunken driving case.
Court officials said on Tuesday that Beverly Hills Superior Court judge Marsha Revel had ordered the "Mean Girls" actress to attend a progress review in person.
The order follows reports that Lohan, 23, has attended only 10 of 13 alcohol education classes required of her, and months of partying chronicled by Los Angeles and New York paparazzi.
Couurt documents obtained by celebrity website TMZ.com on Tuesday showed however that those running the alcohol education program felt Lohan's attitude was "positive and receptive to ideas regarding lifestyle changes".
The report filed for Thursday's court hearing added that Lohan "has never come (to class) under the influence, been rude or disrespectful."
Lohan's attorney did not return calls for comment.
Lohan has been in France for the Cannes film festival this week amid rumors that she is be cast as 1970s "Deep Throat" porn star Linda Lovelace in an upcoming biography film. But no official announcement has so far been made at the festival and Lohan has largely avoided the mainstream media there.
Her return to Los Angeles could be hit by ash clouds from an Icelandic volcano which have again closed European airports and disrupted flights this week. Continued...
