EXCLUSIVE: Judge Reads Lindsay Lohan's Criminal File, Takes No Immediate Action
Seems like things may be finally looking up for Lindsay Lohan after her troubled past year -- at least for now.
RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively that Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Elden Fox has reviewed Lohan's criminal file relating to an alleged assault against a former Betty Ford employee, and has determined to take no immediate action against the 24-year-old star.
As RadarOnline.com exclusively reported Lohan's Palm Desert police report was personally delivered to the Judge last week and was immediately placed under seal.
A source close to the situation tells RadarOnline.com: "Judge Fox read the report, and put it back in Lohan's file. Right now, based on what he has read, he won't be taking any action against Lindsay."
Lohan had been placed under investigation of battery against Dawn Holland, the former Betty Ford staff worker who claims she was hit by the Mean Girls star.
Holland initially filed a police report against Lohan, but then announced through her lawyer, Keith Davidson, that she wouldn't cooperate if Lindsay was prosecuted.
But Lohan isn't home and dry just yet -- the Riverside District Attorney still hasn't made a decision on whether or not they will press charges against the actress. Their spokesperson, John Hall tells RadarOnline.com: "It's still being reviewed."
And, according to the source, the judge will immediately spring into action if they decide to proceed with charges. "Judge Fox is waiting to see what, if any, charges Lindsay will face in connection with the incident at Betty Ford," the source says.

"If she is charged, he will take immediate action. Lindsay is scheduled to appear in front of Judge Fox on February 25th for a progress report hearing. At the last hearing, Judge Fox told her if she cleaned up her act and completed rehab, she would be taken off supervised probation, which would mean no more random drug tests, among other things.
"Lindsay is almost there, the only thing that could change that is if Lindsay is charged by the DA in Riverside, or if she violates other terms of her probation before February 25th."
Meanwhile, according to another source, Lindsay has been working hard to maintain her sobriety and has impressed her rehab counselors with her progress so far.
"Lindsay received a glowing discharge letter from Betty Ford, which Judge Fox also has in the file by now," the source says. "Lindsay's counselors conveyed how impressed they were with the progress she made at Betty Ford, and her commitment to her sobriety."
