We prove bounds for the truncated directional Hilbert transform in $L^{p}(\mathbb{R}^{2})$ for any $1<p<\infty$ under a combination of a Lipschitz assumption and a lacunarity assumption. It is known that a lacunarity assumption alone is not sufficient to yield boundedness for $p=2$ , and it is a major question in the field whether a Lipschitz assumption alone suffices, at least for some $p$ .
