LEGAL MATTERS

An L.A. judge refused on Sept. 11 to dismiss portions of a negligence suit against Lindsay Lohan, 21, over an October 2005 accident in which her convertible collided with a van. Raymundo Ortega sued the actress June 14 and is seeking at least $200,000 in damages, although the California Highway Patrol concluded that he caused the crash by making an illegal U-turn. A court date has been set for April 7…. Country singer Mindy McCready, 31, was sentenced in Franklin, Tenn., Sept. 14 to a year in jail for violating her probation stemming from a 2004 drug conviction. She was jailed July 21, when her mother, Melody Inge, 52, accused McCready of scratching her during an altercation at Inge’s Fort Myers, Fla., home. (The singer denied the allegation.) Charged with domestic battery and resisting arrest, McCready was eventually released on $1,000 bail. She then flew to Tennessee, where she resides, and was taken into custody and booked on the probation offense….
