Lindsay Lohan's Lawsuit Against Grand Theft Auto 5 Was Just Shot Down

Lindsay Lohan's Lawsuit Against Grand Theft Auto 5 Was Just Shot Down

Images of a character named Lacey Jonas in Grand Theft Auto V aren't recognisable as the Mean Girls actress, the court ruled yesterday.

The case then went up another step on the appellate ladder - with the Motion Picture Association of America, the Entertainment Software Association, and the American Booksellers Association supporting Take-Two's position against Lohan.

Neither Lindsay Lohan nor the creators of Grand Theft Auto V have commented on the court's latest ruling.

Today, the New York Court of Appeals comes to a slightly different analysis, but ultimately agrees that Lohan's lawsuit should be dismissed.

This was the other character Lohan was upset with. But for years, Lindsay Lohan has been trying to convince a court that Lacey Jonas is her "look-a-like".

New Balance, which sponsors Steve Smith but not the Australian cricket team, would not comment on Wednesday. Shukla further revealed that the two franchises would be given an opportunity to replace the two players.

A panel of judges from the Court of Appeals upheld a lower court's judgment in favor of the video game's parent company Take-Two Interactive, according to an article on Thursday by Page Six.

But he added that Lohan could not prevail because Grand Theft Auto V merely depicted a generic "20-something" woman, without any suggestion it was her.

In simpler terms, Lacey Jonas is not a likeness of Lohan, and that's the final word.

"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". Pitbull's lyrics stated: "So, I'm tip-toein', to keep flowin', I got it locked up, like Lindsay Lohan", and Lohan was not able to win her cases against the conservative news network or the entertainer. Therefore, the case was dismissed. However, there wasn't enough there to suggest that Rockstar actually used her as a character in GTA.

Mob Wives star Karen Gravano was also part of the lawsuit over similarities of another character, but the court also rejected her claim, too.
