Lindsay Lohan loses 'Grand Theft Auto V' lawsuit

01 Апреля, 2018, 01:19 | Author: Shannon Newton

She claimed that the trashy character, Lacey Jonas, is created after her so she should be compensated by Take-Two.

Theoretically, she could appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court, but she would have to show how the ruling and the state's privacy laws conflict with an overriding Constitutional law or precedent.

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. But for years, Lindsay Lohan has been trying to convince a court that Lacey Jonas is her "look-a-like".

In Thursday's decision, Judge Eugene Fahey said a computer image, or avatar, may constitute a "portrait" to support an invasion of privacy claim under NY civil rights law.

This was the other character Lohan was upset with. They said it did not owe Lohan any damages. "Here, the Jonas character simply is not recognizable as plaintiff inasmuch as it merely is a generic artistic depiction of a "twenty something" woman without any particular identifying physical characteristics", the court's opinion states.

Those artistic renderings are indistinct, satirical representations of the style, look, and persona of a modern, beach-going young woman. 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. As to no surprise Lohan chose to appeal the ruling.

Despite the dismissal of Lohan's appeal, the case may have some lasting ramifications.

The court also dismissed a similar claim against Take-Two by Karen Gravano, a cast member in the reality TV series Mob Wives, regarding another character in GTA V.
