Celebrity lawyer Shawn Chapman Holley is back representing Lindsay Lohan.
Holley - who lists among her clients celebrities the "calibre" of Paris Hilton, Nicole Richie and Axl Rose - has been reunited with Lohan following the tempestuous actress's court appearance on 21 April in California, after being charged with felony grand theft over her alleged pocketing of a $2500 necklace.
As reported by Folklaw in July last year, Holley raised a blow for unappreciated lawyers the world over when she stopped acting for Lohan after she discovered her soliciting (pun intended) for another lawyer.
While Holley and Lohan might be a legal item again, it seems absence has not made the heart grow fonder.
According to celebrity news site The Gossip Wire, Lohan views her latest trial as a great source of merriment, with Holley being particularly amusing.
Lohan reportedly laughed at Holley when she asked the court transcriber, rather than the judge, to repeat a question. While The Gossip Wire left unanswered the question of whether the errant question was transcribed, and presumably any response the transcriber made, it did report that Lohan continued to laugh when her lawyer called witnesses to the stand.
Holley was also a hit with the gallery. When she asked the jewellery store owner why he needed cameras in his store, he replied "because of theft". This had the courtroom, with the noted exception of Lohan on this occasion, erupting into laughter.
Folklaw thinks Holley should never have taken Lohan back.
Her trial continues.
