Lindsay Lohan's Grand Theft Auto Lawsuit Tossed

Karen Gravano from the show

Following a lower court ruling that rejected Lohan's lawsuit thrown at Take-Two regarding GTA V unlawfully using her likeness back in 2016, six judges of the New Your Court of Appeals have further ruled against Lohan's claim, and in favor of Take-Two.

Neither Lohan's spokesman, her lawyer, nor Take-Two commented on the decision.

At the time, legal expert Zachary Strebeck noted in his Gamasutra blog that "under NY publicity rights law, "any recognizable likeness, not just an actual photograph" is protected".

When analyzing what constitutes a "portrait" under NY state law, Associate Judge Eugene Fahey discusses how digital technology evolves and that laws must be interpreted with an eye toward encouraging invention.

The Court of Appeals' decision centers on whether Lacey Jonas constitutes a "portrait" of Lohan under NY state law.

Former Catalan minister Clara Ponsati hands herself in to police in Scotland
A former Catalan minister facing extradition to Spain on charges of rebellion has turned herself in to authorities in Scotland . Her lawyer Aamer Anwar said he was preparing her for a court appearance today where she intends to fight extradition.

The New York Court of Appeals ruled Thursday that images of "a modern, beach-going" woman in Grand Theft Auto V aren't identifiable as Lohan.

Misuse of the system or not, Lohan has ventured into quite a few courtrooms over the years.

From the get-go, it was apparent that Lindsay is trying to cash in from what she felt was her likeness in the game. The privacy lawsuit, according to BBC News, was first filed by Lohan against Rockstar Games in 2014, shortly after the game was released to the public.

It seems ironic, then, that Lohan has become a spokeswoman for Lawyer.com, a site that connects clients to legal representation.

By now, the former movie star is perhaps more famous for her legal run-ins than her acting credits: She's been arrested on multiple occasions for charges ranging from shoplifting and reckless driving to violating her parole. "But when they asked me to be their spokesperson, I was intrigued. Rather, she's a notorious recidivist who obviously had high-powered attorneys at the ready during her darkest days".
