Judge Extends Amanda Bynes' Psychiatric Hold

A Los Angeles judge has extended Amanda Bynes' psychiatric hold for a full month -- and put her in the custody of her doctors, not her parents.

According to TMZ, the doctors who've reportedly been treating the troubled actress for symptoms of schizophrenia asked for and received an emergency conservatorship. They felt Bynes wasn't well enough to attend a hearing to determine whether or not her parents will be granted control of her affairs -- the same deal that Britney Spears has been living under.

California law states that doctors can only get such an order if the patient is "gravely disabled as a result of a mental disorder."
