A Los Angeles judge has stepped in and ordered PARIS HILTON to appear at a court hearing today (08Jun07) - after she was reportedly given permission to sit in on the hearing via the phone. Lawyers representing the socialite have been locked in a battle with the Los Angeles City Attorney and the Sheriff's Department over whether she could be allowed to stay at home for the hearing - ordered following her release from jail yesterday (07Jun07).

After initially reporting that she had been granted permission to phone in her appearance, TMZ.com is now claiming that Judge Michael T. Sauer has ordered Hilton to appear at 9pm (PDT) and dispatched a car to pick her up from her Hollywood home. Prosecutors are due to appeal the decision to release Hilton on house arrest yesterday, and allow her to finish her sentence for violating probation at home.

Los Angeles Sheriff Lee Baca insists the decision was made on medical grounds, but critics believe she was granted preferential treatment.
