Lindsay Lohan Loses 'Grand Theft Auto: V' Lawsuit Over 'Likeness' To Character

The media and her fans are also extremely obsessed about her, with Lacey claiming that one photo of her can reach a six-figure price and that the autobiography of her gynecologist was the best selling fiction and non-fiction book of 2010.

In addition to shooting down her lawsuit, the Court of Appeals also ordered Lohan to pay Rockstar's court costs.

The sticking point of Lohan's lawsuit was that Grand Theft Auto 5's promotional material utilized pictures of Jones, one of which depicted her taking a selfie while wearing a red bikini and throwing the peace sign, not unlike a real picture of Lohan wearing a red bikini and throwing the peace sign.

In regards to the case the court ruled that "a computer generated image may constitute a portrait within the meaning of [Civil Rights Law sections 50 and 51]". However, a NY court disagreed.

Lohan was suing for invasion of privacy, but the court said that Grand Theft Auto's character was generic. After that, an appeal was filed to try and get the lawsuit up and running again, but this week, the request was denied.


"In his ruling, Judge Eugene Fahey wrote, "[The] artistic renderings are indistinct, satirical representations of the style, look and persona of a modern, beach-going young woman... that is not recognizable as plaintiff".

In 2010, Lohan settled a $100 million lawsuit against E-Trade after she claimed that an ad featuring "milkaholic" baby named Lindsay was mocking her and her history of drug and alcohol abuse.

In view of the above, the Court of Appeals has concluded that the case was rightfully dismissed in 2014.

'It is undisputed that defendants did not refer to plaintiff in GTA, did not use her name in GTA, and did not use a photograph of her in that game, ' the judges added.

In a separate order, the court dismissed similar claims against Take-Two by Karen Gravano, a star of the reality TV series "Mob Wives", over another character.
