    Amanda Bynes' increasingly erratic behavior: A timeline
    In July, Bynes was hospitalized on a 5150 involuntary psychiatric hold after she started a small fire in a resident's driveway in Thousand Oaks, Calif. The three-day hold was ultimately extended to December, and Bynes was transferred to a rehab facility. She is expected to be released by Christmas.

According to TMZ, Wednesday's ruling is not expected to impact her conservatorship.
