Amanda Bynes' Condition Lands Her In Her Parents Care! Temporary Conservatorship Granted!

Filed under: Sad SadAmanda BynesMental Health

She may not think so, but it might actually be a good day to be Amanda Bynes. She's finally going to get the help she so desperately needs

As we reported earlier today, after reviewing the matter at hand, a judge granted doctors an emergency conservatorship which extends the psychiatric hold for another 30 days, as she has been deemed "gravely disabled". Now, the judge overseeing Amanda's parents plea for a conservatorship has just granted their request.

It's fairly clear that the decision was made to grant the temporary conservatorship after doctors at the psychiatric hospital got a 1-month extension on her psych hold, which kept Amanda from appearing in court today to defend herself. Still, her lawyers were present, and pleaded despearted in opposition of the conservatorship, believing it's not necessary.

But in the end, her parents came out victorious, with the temporary conservatorship lasting

J.K. Rowling Settles Lawsuit With Pseudonym-Spilling Muggles

J.K. Rowling settled her lawsuit this week against British lawyer Chris Gossage, a partner in J.K.'s law firm, Russells, and his friend Judith Callegari — who were the admitted culprits behind the revelation earlier this month that mystery author Robert Galbraith is actually a pseudonym for J.K..

J.K.’s (new?) lawyer, Jenny Afia, said the incident with Chris and Judith has left Jo Jo “dismayed and distressed by such a fundamental betrayal of trust.”

We don’t know if Jenny also mentioned their loose lips sent Galbraith’s The Cuckoo’s Calling to the best-seller list.

Not that success excuses breaches of confidentiality in any way! But we’re just sayin’!

Chris, Judith, and Russells apologized to Jo, and the author was awarded an undisclosed amount of damages, which she is donating to The Soldiers’ Charity.

Whether J.K. Rowling or Robert Galbraith will get the credit for the donation, we don’t know. LOLz!!!

Paula Deen's Own LAWYER Has To Be Deposed!

paula deen james p gerard lawyer deposed ruling racism

This whole scandal keeps getting crazier!!

Paula Deen scrambled to get a judge to stop her own lawyer from having to provide testimony in the sexual harassment/racial discrimination lawsuit she's drowning in, but the judge actually ruled in FAVOR of having her lawyer deposed!

This means that Paula's attempt at saying that everything lawyer James P. Gerard knows falls under client confidentiality has been SHUT DOWN!

cyclist guilty vehicular manslaughter case legal court

This doesn't happen often, if ever!

A cyclist — not a driver — has been found guilty (well, he pleaded) of vehicular manslaughter! This is the FIRST conviction of this kind in the country! The cyclist ran down a 71-year-old pedestrian in San Francisco.

Chris Bucchere is NOT going to serve any jail time with the deal, but would be sentenced to three years probation and 1,000 hours of community service!

Paula Deen FIRES Legal Team (From Her Hiding Place)!

paula deen fires legal team racism n word

If your legal team is willing to try and apply the striking down of Prop 8 to your case, which revolves around using the N word and offending your workers, we'd say you've got a balls out team, and you MIGHT want to stick with them! LOLz!

In a very questionable move, Paula Deen has FIRED her legal team, despite their attempts to stretch the law for her!

Wow. She can't keep anyone around! Don't forget, folks, she JUST fired her longtime agent!

According to a source, the reason why she decided to make this bold move is:

ariel winter mother wants to be reinstated as her legal guardian

It's been several months since Ariel Winter's mother lost custody of the young starlet after she was accused of being physically and verbally abusive, but now Chrisoula Workman thinks it's time for her to get back to her parenting duties!

The Modern Family actress has been living with her sister Shanelle Gray in recent months, and courts decided to extend her status as a temporary guardian back in March.

But according to Chrisoula, that was NOT part of the original deal!
