Chris Brown will have to wait a bit longer before checking in with an L.A. judge regarding how much community service he's performed since he was convicted of felony assault on then-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009. A court appearance scheduled for Monday has been pushed back a week to allow authorities more time to prepare the singer's probation report. At issue: The number of hours of community labor - roadside cleanup, graffiti removal and the like - that Brown's done since a judge gave him the OK to do part of his duty in his home state of Virginia.

The Medical Board of California put Dr. L. Scott Stoney on probation for 10 years for excessive prescribing, falsifying records and other offenses. It was a stiff sanction by the agency's standards. But when a judge recommended that Stoney's probation be lifted three years early, the board did not object. The Newport Beach pain specialist said he had turned his practice around and had grown wise to the tricks some patients used to obtain prescription painkillers. A doctor who had monitored his practice vouched for Stoney's assertions that he had better-trained staff and had begun requiring patients to sign contracts agreeing not to abuse the drugs he prescribed.

Lindsay Lohan was all smiles in court Wednesday as a judge heaped praise on the starlet for being on schedule with her community service and even promised to end her probation as early as February. "Miss Lohan, you have actually done your work," Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Stephanie Sautner told a beaming Lohan. In the last month, the actress served her required 12 days of community service at the Los Angeles County coroner's office and one more than her four mandated therapy sessions — requirements that the judge imposed on Lohan for violating her probation on a jewelry theft conviction and a 2007 conviction for driving under the influence.
