Lindsay Lohan isn't getting much attention from producers and film-makers these days, so it leaves her a little extra time to get into "groupie" mode.

The challenge that goes with that distraction might put her legal future at risk. But, she has been down this road before.

Reports from  E! Online suggest that Lindsay won't be in court today  because she is off to London with Max George and the Wanted.

If you are involved enough to keep track of Ms. Lohan's judicial problems, you probably know that today's hearing is for misdemeanor charges that cover a collection of her struggles, like, resisting arrest and obstructing justice.  It's not required that she be present at this hearing, so she apparently leaves it in the hands of her attorneys while she travels the rock circuit.

Time will tell if the bad-girl image does her any good when she finally does face the judge.
