NEW YORK -- Lindsay Lohan's attorney predicts there will be no case against the actress in connection with an alleged fight at a New York City nightclub.
Attorney Mark Jay Heller spoke after signing paperwork at the courthouse Monday.
Office of Court Administration spokesman David Bookstaver confirmed that a criminal complaint has not been drawn up at this time. The district attorney's office said only that the investigation is continuing.
Lohan was arrested on a charge of misdemeanour assault in the Nov. 29 incident.
The "Mean Girls" star allegedly struck a woman in the face during an argument.
At the time of her arrest, her attorney, Heller said Lohan was "a victim of someone trying to capture their 15 minutes of fame."
