Lindsey Lohan's Lawsuit Against Rockstar Has Been Dismissed Again

Lindsey Lohan's Lawsuit Against Rockstar Has Been Dismissed Again

The character in question, Lacey Jonas, shows up during a mission in which players must help her evade the paparazzi. Another pre-game intro sequence also sported the woman being handcuffed by a police officer.

Neither Ms Lohan nor Rockstar's owner, Take-Two Interactive, has commented following the latest ruling.

Lohan said that Lacey Jonas' character was blonde, wore a red bikini, and famously threw up a peace sign, and Lohan said it was clear that the game had misappropriated her "portrait", "voice", and "persona".

It's game over for Lindsay Lohan's lawsuit against the publisher of the Grand Theft Auto video game series.

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.

Interestingly, the court did rule that video game avatars can be considered a person's likeness, which sets a new precedent for video game characters, at least for NY.

Lohan was suing for invasion of privacy, but the court said that Grand Theft Auto's character was generic.

GTA 5's bikini-clad, selfie-taking Lacey Jonas character did not rip-off the image of Mean Girls actress Lindsay Lohan, a United States appeals court has ruled.

But the state Court of Appeals ruled Thursday that the satirical representations of "a modern, beach-going" young woman are not identifiable as Lohan.

Actress Lindsay Lohan arrives for the presentation of the Gareth Pugh Spring/Summer 2016 collection during London Fashion Week September 19, 2015.

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

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.
