    Lindsay Lohan is back in the news today. Well, sorta.

    It seems two L.A. County Superior Court judges have been disciplined by the California Commission on Judicial Performance for how they conducted themselves during the actress' 2010 DUI case.

    Per documents obtained by the Los Angeles Times, the oversight panel determined that Judge Marsha Revel improperly met alone with an attorney who wanted to take over Lohan's defense.

    Meanwhile, Judge Elden Fox apparently acted inappropriately when he denied Lohan bail on a relatively minor charge and refused to hear her attorney's arguments.

    Both Revel and Fox, who work out of the Beverly Hills courthouse, received "advisory letters" for their actions. It is considered the lowest level of discipline, the equivalent of a "wrist slap," according to one judicial expert.
