Lindsay Lohan's GTA V Lawsuit Dismissed by New York Court of Appeals

Karen Gravano from the show

Lohan brought her case against Take-Two in 2014. The court said that Lacey may constitute a "portrait" under NY civil rights law but that the artistic rendering was "satirical" and "not reasonably identifiable". She also objected to a similar depiction of a blonde woman, once shown being frisked by a police officer and in another wearing a red bikini taking a selfie with her cellphone and holding up a peace sign.

Next, though, comes the question of whether the "Lacey Jonas" avatar is Lindsay Lohan.

Then, in September 2016, an appeals court reversed the decision with the determination that under New York Civil Rights Law § 51, the video game publisher didn't really use her name, portrait or picture - and so, her privacy couldn't have been violated.

The judge ruled that the satirical representations of "a modern, beach-going" young woman are not enough to link with Lohan.

Bancroft was handed three demerit points and a 75% fine, while Warner was not sanctioned by the cricket governing body. Cameron Bancroft was given a nine-month ban for using sandpaper to rough the ball illegally.

It's just that in this case, the images "are not recognisable" as Lohan.

The Court of Appeals' decision centers on whether Lacey Jonas constitutes a "portrait" of Lohan under NY state law. Reuters reports the New York Court of Appeals voted 6-0 on Thursday to toss the actress' lawsuit against Take-Two Interactive.

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. As to no surprise Lohan chose to appeal the ruling. She also filed a defamation lawsuit against Pitbull in 2013 over the song "Give Me Everything", in which the rapper says, "So, I'm tip-toein', to keep flowin', I got it locked up, like Lindsay Lohan".

In a video ad last week announcing Lohan as a new "spokesperson" for the brand, the celebrity pokes fun at her own run-ins with the law. "Rather, she's a notorious recidivist who obviously had high-powered attorneys at the ready during her darkest days".
