Dodgers' Season Ticket Holders File Motion To Protect Their Interests

Filed under: Legal MattersBaseball

Dodgers logo

As you may know by now, the Los Angeles Dodgers have been experiencing some financial difficulty and owner Frank McCourt was forced to file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy this past summer.

Now the team's faithful followers have filed a motion of their own to protect their interests as McCourt struggles through court proceedings to save his team.

Season ticket holders have filed court documents with the bankruptcy court in Delaware to establish a formal committee of more than 17,000 season ticket holders.

Since some have poured up to $150,000 a year into the team, their goal is to make sure Dodger funds are being used for what they consider the most important part of the "fan experience".

Basically, they want to make sure any money McCourt gets is used appropriately, for instance, to acquire new players, meet payroll, renovate the stadium, and operate concessions.

After a Giants fan suffered a brutal beating outside the stadium, the documents emphasize the need for increased security.

Sources report that if the motion is approved, they may have a voice in future decisions about the team.

Lindsay's Probation Report Reveals She Tested POSITIVE For Alcohol In February!

Filed under: Lindsay LohanDrugsLegal MattersSad SadRehab

lindsay-lohans-probation-report-reveals-relapse

Wow. She really cannot stop herself, can she?

All the more reason she needs to be MONITORED for quite some time - and CLOSELY!

According to Lindsay Lohan's probation report, which was filed in late February during her grand theft trial, her officer revealed that not only is "substance abuse is the root of the defendant's problems," but that the formerly hard-pAArtying actress test positively for alcohol on February 8th of this year - only a month after she left Betty Ford behind!

Furthermore, the report also claims that the night of her alleged attack on the Betty Ford staffer, multiple restaurant, hotel, and nightclub employees confirmed that Lindsay was drinking. She also seems to have a history of shoplifting:

"Defendant has been suspected of similar conduct in other jewelry stores … As a result [the detective in the necklace case] recommends that the defendant … be ordered to serve at least six months in county jail."

At the time the report was filed, she was also listed as taking Trazadone for sleep, Nexium for heartburn, Yaz as birth control, Zoloft for depression, Zyrtec for allergies, and Doxcycline and Zythromax for strep throat.

The report concludes:

"Although the defendant has no record of violence or prior felony convictions, her recent positive test for alcohol use and the allegations in the current matter are troubling in that she continues to violate the law, despite prior grants of probation and county jail time. More severe sanctions may be necessary in order for the defendant to better understand the gravity of her actions. If convicted as charged in the present matter, it would appear that defendant's criminal conduct is increasing in seriousness and severity.
The probation officer of record indicates the defendant has cooperated with the probation department and that she has made progress with her treatment. With the above in mind, it is believed that the defendant may continue to benefit from formal probation supervision and treatment; state prison is not warranted at this time. Nevertheless, if the defendant is convicted of the present charge, she should not escape punishment for her crime. The defendant needs to understand the consequences of her behavior."

Unbelievable.

Clearly, she is an extremely troubled young woman, and we do honestly have concerns that she'll ever truly be able to keep herself out of trouble for long.

Hopefully, this latest ruling can serve as the wake-up call she desperately needs to have, and her probation officer can keep enough tabs on her over the course of the next few years and ensure that she doesn't stray too far from the right path.

You've got a long, difficult road to recovery ahead of you, gurl. We seriously hope you're ready to face those demons.

Stay strong. We're thinking of you.

Gross! Jewelers Put Lindsay's Surveillance Footage On-line, Charge Users To Watch It!

jewelers-put-lindsay-surveillance-footage-on-website

This is actually so appalling that we can't even believe it's real.

The jewelry store involved in Lindsay Lohan's current court drama has already sold the surveillance footage to the press and attempted to get themselves a book and movie deal over the legal disaster, and now, they've created a website on which users can watch the video of the formerly hard-pAArtying actress allegedly stealing the $2500 necklace - but for a price, of course!

The website, necklacevideo.com, will reportedly post "new content every day" so they can ensure that viewers "come back tomorrow for more" - and have to pay the $2.99 log-in fee again!

According to a rep from Kamofie & Company:

“We will help you make-up your mind about what really happened. NecklaceVideo.com is disclosing everything. The entire video surveillance footage, the real nature of the necklace, the supposed dialogue between Lindsay and the salesgirl.”

Gross. Seriously, just gross.

Firstly, the website sounds like it should be the host to some bizarre eastern european fetish porn, not a surveillance video of Lindsay trying on jewelry for 42 minutes. Secondly, WHO THE HELL IS GOING TO PAY THAT just to see, again, surveillance video of Lindsay trying on jewelry for 42 minutes? If they're going to trial because the footage doesn't prove anything, what makes it worth watching?

Lastly, this is yet another BIZARRE and exploitive move from this establishment, which once again reinforces for us that this whole court case is just a way for them to ca$h in on Lindsay's attention from the media and use her as a means to gain some notoriety for their business.

Ugh. This all just needs to be OVER.

What do U think? Did Lindsay do it?

Lindsay Does NOT Want Recovery, Says Nancy Grace

nancy grace says lindsay doesnt want recovery

Why don't you tell Lindsay how you really feel, Nancy Grace?

When asked about Lindsay Lohan's current court case, Nancy had the following to say:

"Finally, we have a judge in a Lohan case that makes some sense."

"I think that if she plays the Hollywood game, she'll wait and not admit guilt because she can't say 'OK, I did it."

"She'll play the game, but this is not the kind of judge you want to play. He's not playing with her — if she tries to play this judge, it is going to backfire."

And here's the big bomb that she dropped on LiLo:

"She doesn't want recovery! She doesn't want that, just like Charlie Sheen… it may actually end up helping her because it may finally put her on the road to recovery."

"She has thrown so much away! You can't ever be on the Hollywood A-List [or] new 'It Girl' again — that's over! That horse is out of the barn."

Harsh words, but not completely unfounded. We're not sure if we'd go so far as to say that she DOESN'T want recovery, but it is troubling that she's had SO many opportunities, and she's blown it every time, one way or another.

Do U think that Lindsay doesn't want recovery?

Faye Dunaway Suffers Gym Injuries

Filed under: Film FlickersOops!FitnessGym TimeOuchie!

faye-dunaway-gym.jpg

This isn't Faye Dunaway's month!

The film legend suffered a broken wrist and head laceration after falling down and getting injured outside her gym earlier this month.

And now, she's been forced to postpone her court date with a former employee who's accusing her of refusing to pay him $5,780 for three weeks of work.

Luckily, the judge has agreed to postpone the December court date to January 28, which works out for Faye since she's reportedly "still trying to build her defense."

She wouldn't fake injuries to help her out in the court case, would she??

Roman Polanski Rape Victim Speaks

It's actually fascinating to hear her take on everything.

Check out (above) these clips from Larry King Live of Samantha Geimer, who was raped by Roman Polanski when she was 13, discuss the horrific event and explain that she doesn't blame him as much as she does the media for the way they handled reporting on her and the court case!

We obviously still think that Polanski should be held accountable for his despicable crime, but we also understand that the victim herself has every right to feel however she wants about what she endured.

What do U think?? Do U agree with Geimer's perspective on Polanski??

JetBlue Diva Took A Five Year Break From Being A Flight Attendant!

ssjb_1.jpg

Looks like he had gotten sick of his job before the meltdown!

Our new hero, JetBlue Diva Steven Slater, was allegedly a flight attendant for TWA and then Delta from 1997-2002! According to his resume, he also worked as a Burberry Accessories Shop Manager at Bloomingdale's, and from what we can gather on his Myspace profile, he seems like a pretty normal, well-adjusted guy!

His profile reads:

"Well howdy friends and loved ones! Thanks for stopping by my little piece 'o the web! Chances are I am flying 35, 000 feet somewhere over the rainbow on my way to some semi-fabulous JetBlue Airways destination! Truly, some are better than others. But I am enjoying being back in the skies and seeing them all.

Back flying after five years off the job and having a ball. If I am on the ground, I am probably in my humble home in the 'burbs doing something domestic and trite like vacuuming. Or dining, as I just love to dine. Which leads to the gym, to offset the dining. Big fan of sand and sun, I am often found on the beach or in a park, anywhere I can catch some exercise and a few rays. My airline affiliation allows me amazing travel privileges, and I love to max it out with trips around the world, sometimes on a moment's notice! Let's go!”

He also posts pictures like the one above, which make him more and more obsessed!

This guy is HARDCORE! LOLs!

Slater is due in court September 7th - keep your head up, bb! There's a lot of people who have your back!
