Lindsey Lohan's GTA V lawsuit appeal has been rejected

However the court concluded that video game characters that the actress said were based on her did not resemble her. She also alleged her likeness was used in the game.

I will be the first to admit I had completely forgotten Lindsay Lohan tried to sue Take-Two Interactive. Lohan said that the game's widely distributed promotional, box and disc art (one sample is above) was such a portrait, used without her written consent.

Lindsey Lohan's Grand Theft Auto lawsuit has run out of lives.

Six judges at the Court of Appeals in the state of NY unanimously rejected Lohan's claim that a character in GTA V named Lacey Jonas was based on her.

In response, Speaker Robin Vos called Judge Reynolds an activist judge and accused her of working outside of the law. Dane County Circuit Judge Josann Reynolds, who was appointed by Walker, last week sided with the voters.

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

However, New York's Court of Appeals ruled that satirical representations of a young woman, who was "modern" and "beach-going", were not identifiable as the Mean Girls star. Not only did Lohan's 2013 defamation lawsuit fail, her lawyers were caught plagiarizing.

A spokesman for Lohan had declined for a comment, and her lawyer Frank Delle Donne was not immediately available for comment. Judge Eugene Fahey said the character in question, Lacey Jones, depicted a generic twenty-something woman that wasn't specifically referencing the actress. Lohan claimed he defamed her by rapping "So, I'm tip-toein', to keep flowin', I got it locked up, like Lindsay Lohan". Therefore, the case was dismissed. It is undisputed that defendants did not refer to plaintiff in GTAV, did not use her name in GTAV, and did not use a photograph of her in that game.

Concurrently with this opinion (read here) comes a loss for ex-Mob Wives star Karen Gravano, who brought a similar lawsuit against Take-Two over the character of "Andrea Bottino" in Grand Theft Auto V.
