Amanda Bynes: Parents Go to Court to Take Control

Amanda Bynes's parents are determined to help their troubled daughter.

Lynn Organ and Rick Bynes arrived at Ventura County Superior Court Friday morning at 8:30 a.m. to request a conservatorship over their 27-year-old. Lawyer Tamar Arminak joined them to plead their case before the judge.

However, the judge refused to make any ruling today, because Amanda was not present in court.

As has been previously reported, their temporary request was granted Thursday to extend Amanda's temporary psych hold for up to an additional two weeks, starting yesterday.

Amanda is now on a 5250 hold and her next hearing is set for August 9. The Ventura judge told Amanda's parents that if she were to get out early, it would be their attorney's responsibility to let the court know so that they could get the hearing moved up.

Bynes was originally taken into a 5150 involuntary psychiatric hold on Monday after allegedly trying to set a fire in the driveway of 73-year-old Thousand Oaks, California, resident Bonnie Braaten.

It's not the former actress's first psychiatric evaluation. On May 23, she was taken into Roosevelt Hospital in New York City after allegedly throwing a bong out the window of her 36th floor apartment when police came to investigate whether or not she was smoking pot in her building.
