Like most of her movies, this lawsuit was just a waste of time.
Lindsay Lohan sued Take-Two Interactive Software, claiming that her likeness was used without her permission in Grand Theft Auto V. The original lawsuit was filed back in 2014. She lost. And she appealed the decision. Claiming that the game was an invasion of her privacy.
New York’s state Court of Appeals has unanimously (6-0) decided in favor of the game publisher. Judge Eugene Fahey said in the decision that “The amended complaint was properly dismissed because the artistic renderings are indistinct, satirical representations of the style, look, and persona of a modern, beach-going young woman that are not reasonably identifiable as plaintiff.” Indistinct and satirical representation? Well no wonder Lohan thought it was her.
In a separate but similar case, the court also dismissed claims by TV “Mob Wives” reality TV personae Karen Gravano who claimed another character in the game was based on her. Oddly enough, I bet that other character was more recognizable than Gravano.
