Amanda Bynes Doesn't Show Up To Court In LA, Is Granted Continuance
After failing to show up for a Los Angeles court hearing yesterday, Amanda Bynes was granted a continuance in her driving on a suspended licence case on Tuesday.
In September, Bynes, 26, was charged with two misdemeanors after she was pulled over by police in Burbank, Calif. She was scheduled for a pre-trial hearing but Bynes, who has pleaded not guilty to the counts, didn't show up to court.
The actress' lawyer Richard Hutton asked for a continuance, and judge Margaret Oldendorf granted the motion; however, she stressed the need to move the case forward and set a new pre-trial date for May.
Bynes recently relocated to New York City and also faces a charge of driving under the influence (DUI) relating to a separate motor mishap last year, when she was also accused of two counts of hit-and-run. The latter charges were dropped in December.
Meanwhile, the actress has threatened to sue blogger Perez Hilton and Us Weekly magazine over the way she's being portrayed in the media.
