Lindsay Lohan loses 'Grand Theft Auto' appeal

01 April 2018

In the game, Jonas is famous for her high school movies and is described as "very image-conscious".

It is unclear if Lohan will continue to pursue the case, but given her lawyers' seemingly undying dedication to this cause, we'll likely hear about it again soon enough.

On the big day, anyone wishing to see the royal procession take place through Windsor will be subject to searches by the police. Thames Valley Police says visitors and residents should remain vigilant at all times as they "are our extra eyes and ears".

Lindsay Lohan kicked off a lawsuit against the game developer for not only using her likeness for the cartoons, but also for creating another character, Lacey Jonas, which she said was similar to her life.

Grand Theft Auto V is one of the most expensive video games in history with a budget of $267 million.

Walker calls special elections, GOP drops bill to block them
It's unclear what steps the Senate will take now that Walker has said he will call the special elections. The Senate elections committee was set to hold a hearing on the measure Wednesday.

Yesterday, that appeal came up short as New York's Court of Appeals affirmed the ruling in the earlier case. It also follows a March 26 decision by a California state appeals court that threw out Dame Olivia de Havilland's lawsuit claiming over her depiction in an FX Networks docudrama about a feud between Bette Davis and Joan Crawford. However, since he already stated Jones is a satirical jab at a particular demographic and not Lohan herself, the character doesn't constitute any attack or invasion of privacy aimed at Lohan. But for years, Lindsay Lohan has been trying to convince a court that Lacey Jonas is her "look-a-like". "Lacey says that she has so many fans that "they could fill the entire country of Africa", including one fan who sent his own junk to her in a box".

In the decision, Judge Eugene Fahey said that while a computer image or avatar may constitute a "portrait" to support an invasion of privacy claim under NY civil rights law, GTA's presentation that Lohan objected to was merely a generic "twenty something" woman without suggestion that it was Lohan. Therefore, the case was dismissed. Lohan claimed he defamed her by rapping "So, I'm tip-toein', to keep flowin', I got it locked up, like Lindsay Lohan".
