Lindsay Lohan successfully made her way from New York to Los Angeles on Wednesday (January 30) in order to make a mandatory court appearance. Lohan arrived wearing a black dress and black sunglasses, accompanied by her mother, Dina, and her lawyer Mark Heller.
Rumors were circling that Lohan wouldn't make the hearing - her lawyer had previously submitted papers saying that she was too ill to fly.
Once in court, Judge Stephanie Sautner remarked on Lohan's reported flu.
The hearing was mostly a formality, with the judge setting a March 18 trial date, and an additional March 01 hearing, for which Lohan will not need to be present.
Lohan is charged with three misdemeanor counts filed following a June car crash, to all of which she has pleaded not guilty. If found guilty, she could face jail time for violating her probation for a 2011 jewelry theft.
