Lindsay Lohan was a no-show in court as New York prosecutors decide whether or not to file criminal charges against the actress after an altercation in a nightclub. Lohan was arrested in November on an assault charge after police said she punched a fortune teller in the face. The starlet's attorney, Mark Jay Heller, says Lohan didn't hit anyone. SOUNDBITE: Mark Jay Heller, attorney, saying (English): "I am confident that they will determine as I did that the alleged victim in this case was simply seeking her 15 minutes of fame, and that's why these charges were lodged." And Heller is confident the case will be dismissed. SOUNDBITE: Mark Jay Heller, attorney, saying (English): "It's my opinion that this case will ultimately be declined for prosecution, but it will be several weeks before the district attorney makes that decision and ironically a psychic fortune teller has predicted that the year 2013 will be an extremely lucky year for Lindsay Lohan." But while she avoided court in New York, she will have to appear at a probation violation hearing on January 15 in California.
