A judge might be forcing Lindsay Lohan to come clean about her drug use on the night she was arrested on a DUI in 2007, but according to her high-powered lawyer, the troubled actor simply won't get a fair trial.

Judge Richard Fox ruled Thursday that Lohan must answer questions as to whether she used cocaine the night she was arrested in 2007 after a joyride, which resulted in a lawsuit brought by people who were in the car.

But her lawyer, Ed McPherson, tells RadarOnline: "I don't believe my client can get a fair trial in Beverly Hills. In fact, I don't think Lindsay could get a fair trial anywhere in California."

Despite the protest, McPherson said it would be pointless to change the venue for the civil trial, set to begin on July 26.

The passengers of the car are suing Lohan for what McPherson described as a "two minute event,” which culminated in his client being arrested. 

McPherson successfully had the venue for Lohan's second deposition venue changed to his office, with a time limit of two hours.

In court yesterday, McPherson said: "This lawsuit is about a two minute chase that ruined her life (passenger Tracie Rice)... did this ruin her life? That will be up to the jury to decide."
