Courtney Love may no longer be America's Sweetheart, but one California judge seems smitten by the rocker.

Love got a gold star from Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Rand Rubin at a progress report hearing on Friday. Rubin agreed to let Love loose from her court-ordered drug rehab stay, allowing her instead to serve out the remainder of her 180-day sentence in a less strict outpatient program.

"You're doing really well," Rubin told the former Hole frontwoman. "I'm really pleased with the reports. I certainly hope you keep up the good progress." Although Love will be now have more freedom to finish up her sentence for violating probation in three different criminal cases, she will still be under watchful eyes. Rubin ordered the 41-year-old to submit to random, twice-weekly checks for drugs and alcohol.

Love's get-out-of-rehab pass also means she must avoid bars or nightclubs for the duration of her sentence and continue therapy. She can leave home only under "special circumstances," such as seeing her probation officer or necessary visits to her doctor, per Rubin.

The judge also extended her probation to March 2007 and set a curfew for the former grunge goddess--10 p.m. Despite all the conditions, Love's discharge from the Pasadena-based Las Encinas pleased her attorney, Howard Weitzman.

"She is moving forward and taking the process very seriously," he told Los Angeles' City News Service. "She hopes this is the beginning of the next chapter in her life." And how. Love's sobriety-challenged ways have wreaked havoc on her career and bank account. She drew Rubin's ire in August when she admitted in court to relapsing at a Hollywood hotel in July. Rubin found her in violation of probation on two misdemeanor drug convictions and one misdemeanor assault case and ordered her to immediately check into rehab program.

At the same time, the woman Love whacked with a whiskey bottle in the latter case launched a lawsuit against the volatile singer. "We think it is time for Ms. Love to take full financial responsibility for her assault," plaintiff's attorney Gloria Allred said upon filing the suit. And last month, a Seattle law firm hit Love with a $340,000 lawsuit for unpaid legal fees.
Love is due back in court Jan. 20 for another progress report.

Her career is going downhill, her life is a complete mess and the poor girl has no dignity left.
