Lindsay Lohan

GSI Media

Her assistant may be keeping her mouth shut, but Lindsay Lohan is under strict orders not to follow suit.

After determining that eight hours of quality time with lawyers wasn't enough, a judge this morning ordered the embattled actress to sit down for another deposition—though this one will be mercifully capped at two hours—in her ongoing civil case stemming from her bizarre 2007 DUI and drug bust.

Unsurprisingly, Lindsay's attorney is calling foul on the required tête-à-tête, claiming the star has done enough talking and that ordering her to answer more questions about the ordeal borders on harassment.

No word on whether he managed to keep a straight face when he offered up the following take on the situation:

"In general, although I think that the questions they want to ask Lindsay are improper, we will participate in the deposition, as ordered by Judge Stone, and Lindsay will respond to their questions honestly," attorney Ed McPherson told E! News. "Fortunately, the judge has limited the harassment to two hours."

The civil case was filed against LiLo by Tracie Rice, the woman driving the vehicle Lindsay was chasing across Los Angeles prior to her arrest and the mother of Lohan's assistant at the time.

The actress is expected to be asked about her drug use at the time of the accident, as well as other unclear details leading up to her bust, but won't be required to sit for the drilling until after the next hearing in her probation case. She's due back in court for that on July 6.
