As scary as this may seem now, we truly feel it's for Amanda Bynes' best interests in the long-run.
We've just learned that a judge actually traveled TO the hospital Friday after doctors explained that she was too unwell to make the trek to the courthouse herself — escorts or not!
After reviewing the matter at hand, the judge granted doctors an emergency conservatorship which extends the psychiatric hold for another 30 days. Based on the law books, the judge must have found Miz Bynes "gravely disabled" from a mental disorder to rule such permission.
While Amanda was supposed to attend a hearing today concerning her parents' request for a conservatorship, that opportunity was obviously (and forcibly) missed. Rick and Lynn will continue to pursue their case, however, as it will stay in effect until September 30.
