Amanda Bynes seems to be following in Lindsay Lohan's footsteps when it comes to courtroom behavior.

E! reports the "Easy A" actress missed a hearing on her misdemeanor for driving with a suspended license on Monday because she has not yet provided her attorney with the signed papers for the plea deal they worked on.

Bynes' lawyer Richard Hutton was advised that his client would only be granted one more continuance on the case.

According to Burbank District Attorney Denny Wei, in order for the court to accept a plea deal the defendant must fill, notarize and send out a few forms waiving certain rights.

E! points out that the papers are probably on their way after -- a now red-headed -- Bynes was seen yesterday running around New York City with a FedEx envelope.

Judge Margaret Oldendorf told Hutton she expected to wrap up the case promptly as it's been pending since September, when Bynes was charged for driving with a suspended license. The star originally pleaded not guilty.
