A judge ruled Thursday that Lindsay Lohan will have to answer more questions about a 2007 car chase that landed her in jail.The celebrity's answers will be used in a lawsuit filed against the actress by a woman who claims she suffered emotional distress after the incident.

The "Mean Girls" actress was ordered by Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Richard A. Stone to sit for a two-hour deposition next month.

The judge approved a request by Lohan's attorney to allow the questioning to happen after July 6, when a criminal judge will decide whether Lohan violated her probation by missing a court hearing in May.

Tracie Rice, who was a passenger in a car being chased by Lohan in July 2007, sued the actress for assault, negligence and intentional infliction of emotional distress a month later. The case is scheduled to go to trial in late July.

Rice's attorney argued Thursday that the star hadn't answered key questions about her drug use and whether she was remorseful, both of which could help his case.

The actress was charged with seven misdemeanors stemming from her arrest after the chase and another incident a few months earlier.
