A Mental Heath Court judge in Los Angeles ruled yesterday that actress Amanda Bynes is competent to stand trial for her DUI charges. The judge ruled that Bynes is capable of understanding the legal proceedings she will undergo and therefore, the trial will go forward. There were no objections from her attorney, Rich Hutton.

Even though Bynes has been found mentally competent, she is still under conservatorship. Bynes has been diagnosed with schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.

Dina Lohan Needs to be Evaluated

Dina Lohan

NY District Court Judge Andrew Engel is asking for Dina Lohan to undergo a treatment evaluation, despite her attorney, Mark Heller, claiming that she is “free of any alcohol or substance issues”. Lohan was arrested for a DWI in September of this year.

Heller claims the paparazzi is responsible for Lohan’s DUI.

“The circumstances leading to Dina’s arrest were largely impacted by ongoing daily stresses cause by you folks, the paparazzi, media attention and distorted tabloid character profiles,” Heller stated. “After meeting Dina and her family and witnessing the care, compassion and concern shared between family members, it is my hope that the courts will take the circumstances and challenges of Dina’s lifestyle under consideration in prosecuting this case.”

Jake T. Austin Gets a Deal


Wizards of Waverly Place star is still pretty lucky despite being involved in a hit-and-run the other day. He managed to get his previous DUI charges dropped thanks to the help of his DUI lawyer, Jay Jaffe.

Austin was arrested for a DUI back in October and yesterday, he pleaded no contest to speeding. As a result, Austin faces 24 months probation. Well, at least he avoided jail . . . this time.
