Lindsey Lohan's Lawsuit Against Rockstar Has Been Dismissed Again

The New York Court of Appeals ruled that the satirical representations of ‘a modern beach-going young woman were not identifiable as Lohan

It's hard to believe this is still an ongoing thing given that Grand Theft Auto V was released almost five years ago, but that Lindsay Lohan likeness lawsuit - in which she alleges that Rockstar used her likeness without permission - is just about over.

Fahey also went on record that a computer image could be considered a "portrait", which could be used in invasion of privacy claims.

The 31-year-old took it upon herself to file a lawsuit against the company for one: allegedly making the cartoons look like her; and two: for reportedly basing the character Lacey Jonas' story line on her life.

The Lacey Jonas characater was described as an "actress slash singer" who hides from the paparazzi. If Rockstar had designed a mission or plotline involving Lacey Jonas going through some very Lohan-specific type scenarios, then Lohan might have been able to argue that the resemblance goes beyond coincidence.

Minister to bring 38 bodies from Iraq today
By the schedule, the Union Minister will reach Amritsar and then go to Patna and Kolkata to hand over the bodies, officials said. The government had refused to declare them dead until it had proof.

The Court of Appeals' decision centers on whether Lacey Jonas constitutes a "portrait" of Lohan under NY state law. What concluded yesterday was an appeal to New York State's highest court, the Court of Appeals, which didn't fare any better.

Lohan's movies include 1998's "The Parent Trap" and 2004's "Mean Girls", but acting roles became harder to find following legal and other problems.

For instance, in 2010, Lohan sued E-Trade over a Super Bowl ad that featured a "milkaholic" baby named Lindsay. Lohan in the suit claimed her image, voice and even clothing style had been lifted for the game. She also alleged her likeness was used in the game. "But when they asked me to be their spokesperson, I was intrigued". Calling the lawsuit spurious would be a disservice, as it was initially thrown out in 2014.

It is unclear if Lohan will continue to pursue the case, but given her lawyers' seemingly undying dedication to this cause, we'll likely hear about it again soon enough.
