LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Lindsay Lohan's new attorney might've felt he needed some extra luck in pleading her case before the judge that had warned her to grow up and stay out of trouble just months earlier. Mark Heller attached a rabbit's foot to his briefcase. Lohan wore a conservative black dress to the hearing and replied "yes, your honor" to every question. Heller told the judge that Lohan showed up even though she was recovering from an upper respiratory infection because "she wanted to show respect for the court." He says he hopes Lohan's case can be resolved quickly "to bring closure to this drama in her life." Lohan is accused of lying to police about a car crash. Her trial was set for March 18.

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- When Lindsay Lohan gets out of rehab this summer, Oprah Winfrey will be waiting to talk to her.

Winfrey's cable channel, OWN, said Friday that Winfrey is getting an "exclusive" interview with Lohan that will tape and air in August.

In May, Lohan checked into a Southern California rehab center for a 90-day stay, part of a plea deal in a misdemeanor case filed after a car accident. She's expected to finish rehab around the end of July.

OWN says it also plans an eight-part documentary series with Lohan, to air in 2014.

The 27-year-old Lohan, whose credits include "The Parent Trap" and "Liz & Dick," has struggled with legal and other woes. OWN and Winfrey have scored ratings with other newsworthy celebrity interviews, including Lance Armstrong and Rihanna.
