Judge Revel and Lindsay LohanThe judge responsible for taking Lindsay Lohan off the club circuit for a few months is recusing herself from further court proceedings involving the 'Mean Girls' actress, TMZ has learned.

Judge Marsha Revel's surprise move is in response to allegations from the Los Angeles County District Attorney's office that she improperly held meetings with defense attorneys in Lohan's DUI case. Lawyers also took issue with Revel's dialogue with other experts in the case, as well as a rehab center she had considered for Lohan's sentence.
