Court Tosses Out Lindsay Lohan's GTAV Lawsuit

The Appellate Division of the Supreme Court of the State of New York has finally brought this stupid lawsuit to an end. It's too bad that Lohan can't be billed for wasting the taxpayers money. frown

As to Lohan's claim that an avatar in the video game is she and that her image is used in various images, defendants also never referred to Lohan by name or used her actual name in the video game, never used Lohan herself as an actor for the video game, and never used a photograph of Lohan. Even if we accept plaintiffs' contentions that the video game depictions are close enough to be considered representations of the respective plaintiffs, plaintiffs' claims should be dismissed because this video game does not fall under the statutory definitions of "advertising" or "trade."
