At last, hope: Paris Hilton's legal team has filed a notice that they will appeal Friday's sentence (a process that could go on for a year), taking the crucial first steps towards reversing the egregious miscarriage of justice currently tearing our fair city apart. We know that each update brings a fresh wave of nausea to those who can't bear the thought of 45 straight days without a new TMZ video of Hilton entering one of West Hollywood's most exclusive drinking establishments, but do your best to swallow down the hot bile of empathy rising in your throat, knowing that some very capable, very expensive lawyers will do their best to make sure that their too-trusting client's summer isn't sacrificed to a justice system trying to make an example of someone too innocent to even know she was repeatedly breaking the law.
