Amanda Bynes will be in court Friday, where she is expected to attempt to win her freedom from a California psychiatric hospital. Will she be successful?
The actress, held against her will for the last two weeks since setting a driveway on fire in Thousand Oaks, will be bussed to a local courthouse.
There, her parents will ask a judge for a temporary conservatorship, granting them control over her personal, legal, medical and financial affairs.
If the parents get their way, Amanda will go back to the psychiatric ward for further treatment; Bynes, 27, could walk away a free woman if a judge allows it.
Amanda Bynes will be accompanied by her lawyer. She'll speak to the judge personally, likely in chambers, so he try to gauge her mental competency.
