Amanda Bynes ruled mentally competent for DUI trial

A California judge has ruled that Amanda Bynes is mentally competent to stand trial for her DUI case, People reports.

The Easy A actress was set to appear in court on September regarding her April 2012 DUI arrest in West Hollywood. The proceedings were put on hold when her attorney, Richard Hutton, claimed that Bynes was mentally unstable to stand trial.  The case was transferred to a mental health court, where a judge ruled on Wednesday that she is mentally competent.

Bynes was placed under psychiatric hold following an incident where she started a small fire in a resident’s driveway in Thousand Oaks, Calif in July.  In August, her stay at the psychiatric hold was extended after doctors evaluated the actress and told judges she is “gravely disabled as a result of a mental disorder.”

Amanda Bynes deemed 'gravely disabled,' judge extends psychiatric hold -- REPORT

Amanda Bynes’ psychiatric hold has been extended for 30 days, according to TMZ. Bynes underwent a series of dramatic (and very public) episodes in recent months before being involuntarily admitted to a psychiatric hospital two weeks ago. Doctors evaluating the actress told judges she is “gravely disabled as a result of a mental disorder” in their recommendation for the extension. According to TMZ’s sources, the judge overseeing the case visited Bynes at the medical facility and granted doctors’ request.

The 27-year-old former child star was scheduled to attend a court hearing this morning to determine whether she’d be placed under a conservatorship overseen by her parents. The evaluation will rule out that possibility, but Bynes’ parents can still pursue a temporary conservatorship that would grant them financial control over their daughter.

At time of press, EW was unable to contact Bynes.

Amanda Bynes conservatorship ruling delayed

A California judge delayed making a decision Friday on whether former child star Amanda Bynes should be put under the conservatorship of her parents.

Ventura County Superior Court Judge Glen M. Reiser said there was no rush to act on the request by Bynes’ parents because the actress is under a two-week psychiatric hold at a hospital.

Reiser scheduled a hearing on the issue Aug. 9 and said he also wants to meet one-on-one with Bynes before making a decision.

The 27-year-old actress’ behavior has become increasingly bizarre over the past year.

Bynes was put under the psychiatric hold Monday after authorities said she set a fire on the driveway of a home in the Los Angeles suburb of Thousand Oaks, where she grew up.
