TMZ reported Lohan had allegedly tested positive for alcohol on June 12 or June 13. E! reports Lohan was in chambers with the judge and attorneys for about an hour.

Later in open court, reports E! Online, the judge said if Lohan was in violation, she didn't see it. She did say Lohan was guilty of poor judgment for having parties. Sautner said Lohan may now have only one friend at her home at a time; no more parties.

E! quoted the judge as saying, "If you're in violation I don't see it. You are guilty of extremely of poor judgment."

In a press conference after the hearing, Lohan's attorney Shawn Holley told reporters, "[Lohan's] in compliance with the rules and laws of the State of California. She has done nothing wrong."

Lohan, 24, arrived at court in a black Escalade shortly before the scheduled 10 a.m. PT hearing time. She wore black slacks, a buttoned blouse and her hair was pulled back. The ensemble is more conservative than some of the other ensembles Lohan has worn. She didn't have an entourage with her.

E! reports Lohan's neighbors had been in touch with the court to complain about Lohan's behavior. The actress is currently under house arrest for violating her probation by taking a necklace from a jewelry store without proper permission.

Judge Sautner banned TV cameras from this hearing, reports TMZ. Electronic devices were also banned.
