Dan Gross: Michael Lohan and Damon Feldman will face off on 'Judge Alex'

A WATERSHED MOMENT for the U.S. justice system can get under way at 1 p.m. Friday on Fox 29.

That's when Celebrity Boxing Federation promoter Damon Feldman and Michael Lohan, who makes his living by exploiting his troubled daughter, actress Lindsay Lohan, will be televised facing off in the courtroom of "Judge Alex."

Feldman is seeking $5,000 from Lohan for failing to show up for two scheduled boxing matches, one in Florida, the other in Los Angeles.

Who will prevail in this landmark case? Many may wish both could lose. The world waits.



* Musician Bobby McFerrin, who lives in Chestnut Hill, took the Acela train home from New York Friday afternoon.

* Eagles QB Michael Vick and wife Kijafa went for steaks at the Water Works Restaurant and Lounge Friday while former Eagles lineman Hollis Thomas was also in for dinner in the bar area.


Speaking of Mike . . .

Vick co-hosts the Eye Institute's Looking Out for Kids fundraiser at 7 p.m. Saturday at the Hafter Student Center on the Elkins Park campus of Salus University.

Money raised will help provide vision care for uninsured kids in and around Philadelphia. For info, visit TEIVision.com/LOFK.
