In Lindsay Lohan's latest legal travails, a Los Angeles judge Tuesday set a pretrial date of Jan. 30 and a trial date of Feb. 27 in the actress' probation violation case.

Attorney Shawn Holley -- who reportedly was fired Monday by Lohan and her new attorney, Mark Heller -- entered a plea of not guilty on the actress' behalf. Lohan was not present in the courtroom.

In response to CommissionerJane Godfrey's question as to whether Holley still represented Lohan, the attorney answered, "At this point, yes." When the judge asked whether the representation issue would be settled by the next hearing, Holley assured, "The representation issue will be nailed down."

Lohan's probation in a jewelry-theft case had been revoked Dec. 12, when Godfrey arraigned her on three misdemeanor charges related to a June 8 crash in which Lohan's Porsche collided with an 18-wheel truck. If the charges constitute a violation of probation, Lohan faces up to 245 days in jail.
