Lindsay Lohan’s vehicle-napped victims concerned she’ll plead poor in court case
HollywoodNews.com: Here’s the latest in your daily Lindsay Lohan news.
The three men suing the actress over her 2007 vehicle-napping want the Los Angeles judge to ban Lohan from pleading poverty when their civil case goes to trial on July 26. Recently, it has been reported that Lohan is strapped for cash, in arrears to a number of debtors. In April, she forked over $23,000 over-due rent to her landlord.
Lohan allegedly jumped into their vehicle when they were passengers, kidnapped them and endangered their lives with a joyride through Malibu, California. The incident resulted in a DUI for the “The Parent Trap” actress.
Should Lohan plead poverty, the plaintiffs’ attorney Tracie Rice is concerned that her money assertions could affect the jury’s decision if they choose to award compensation.
“Plaintiff Tracie Rice hereby moves this Court for an order to exclude all testimony about Lindsay Lohan not having money or currently being poor or in debt.”
The documents go on to state: “The motion is based upon the ground that the evidence is irrelevant and immaterial to the issues in this action and unduly prejudicial.”
In addition, Rice wants the judge to know that Lohan was under the influence of two different types of cocaine. Lohan was found with cocaine on her, but pleaded the fifth amendment when questioned by police the night of the incident, avoiding self incrimination.
