Lindsay Lohan hits back at lawsuit

Lindsay Lohan is firing back at a paparazzo who is suing her after a car she was a passenger in ran over his foot two years ago.

The Mean Girls star was hit with a lawsuit from photographer Grigor Balyan in January.

The legal papers allege that while Balyan was shooting Lindsay outside a Hollywood nightclub in a car being driven by her assistant, the vehicle plowed into him on the actress's direction.

He claims to have suffered orthopedic and neurologic injuries.

But TMZ claims that the Liz & Dick star believes it was the paparazzo's own fault for stepping in front of the car and she should not have to pay him any money.

Lindsay has submitted her response to the claim which has been filed in Los Angeles Superior Court this week claiming Balyan "carelessly put himself near a moving automobile" and caused his own injuries.

A judge has yet to make a ruling on the issue.

Sagittarius:

Beware of spending beyond your means. Sticking to a budget will help you survive the festive season relatively unscathed. It will be easier than you think to let your grip on the purse strings slip especially as the big day draws near. Let Christmas be about loving, sharing and giving. Spend quality time preparing food, making decorations and playing games together. If you haven't sent all your cards or round robin emails give some thought about what you will be sharing with others this year.More
