Kevork Djansezian/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) — Lindsay Lohan has put her DUI case behind her, but there are still some lingering aftereffects.

Two Los Angeles County Superior Court judges have been disciplined by California’s Commission on Judicial Performance for their handling of the case, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Judge Marsha Revel, who sent Lindsay to jail in the summer of 2010 after ruling that the Mean Girls star violated her probation, was found to have improperly met alone with an attorney who wanted to represent Lindsay.

Judge Elden Fox was found to have improperly denied bail to Lindsay later that year after she failed a drug test. After Fox made the decision, an appeal was filed and another judge set bail.

A judicial expert tells the Los Angeles Times the panel’s disciplinary actions on the judges are tantamount to a “wrist slap.”

Lindsay’s formal probation in her DUI case ended in March.
