Lindsay Lohan Slaps E-Trade With $100 Million Suit

Tue Mar 09, 2010 7:33 pm

http://www.chicagotribune.com/entert...-lohan-sues-etrade,0,4884514.story

When I first saw the commercial during the Super Bowl I thought it was funny and never even came close to equating it to her.

These are the kinds of lawsuits that need to be thrown out before the even get to a courtroom.

Funny commercial. I never thought of Lindsay Lohan when watching that commercial and i watched it several times showing it to family and friends. This is a stretch if you ask me?

When I first read this I couldn't believe it. How dumb is this chick? She says her name is just as recognizable as Madonna or Cher, so she knows that E-Trade parodied her life. She needs to get over herself fast. I've never seen anyone want attention this much.

You know what, i'm gonna name my daughter Lindsay. Ohh crap, she's gonna sue me. How moronic

I think she needs to look into a mirror..........

The commercial was classic 'Baby' e-Trade.. I don't see a link to Lohan.. never the less funny.

Seriously???

I saw that commercial the other day. Lindsay Lohan didn't even cross my mind. Even when I saw the thread title and started reading the article, I had NO idea they were talking about that particular commercial.

Personally, I group this in the same category as Sarah Palin saying Family Guy slandered her.

Except this is even more egregious, due to a giant lawsuit.

Once she had promise of becoming a good actress.

Now she is reduced to seeking publicity by allowing lawyers to use her name for stupid lawsuits. Do you really think she is going to sit in court and let people prove how stupid she is?

Sad - now one of a long line of young ladies who attempted to build an acting career only to fall victim to alcohol, drugs and ultimately stupidity.

If I was E-Trade, I would offer to settle with her for a penny. It's not like she's worth that anyway though. Tthat would be more of a slap in the face than anything.

Epic, I don't think Lindsay ever saw the commercial, she is a junky with a junk law suit. She should go to back to rehab to take care of her drug and addiction problem rather than sue for 100 million with an unethical lawyer. I guess this is to cover for her panned clothing line. I hope E-Trade continues running the commercial its funny and I hope the judge tosses the whole thing and Lindsay out.

Isn't it standard to file a Cease and Desist with a judge before a law suit ensues?

What?


WHAT?    

I mean seriously, that's about the most serious thing I could post on this thread. I mean, it's about Lindsay Lohan, and milk. So... milk = mammaries to me.


Anyway, this case will be dismissed at the complaint. Failure to state a claim for which relief may be granted. In other words, she hasn't been damaged, let alone anything worth asking $100 M to make her whole.


Whole milk that is.

Lindsay Lohan is a cracked out idiot who's trolling for her next paycheque. Someone convinced her that this is it.

It probably will. The burden of proof is all on the Lohan camp, and the law is in E-Trade's favor. Even if the court found that the "lindsay" in particular was a direct reference to Lohan, and no one else (fat chance of that--how can she possibly prove that given that the only reference is a "milk a holic" line--is she saying that no one else named Lindsay has ever been an alcoholic?), there is also the whole public figure/satire/criticism aspect. Her name is well known in the tabloids for being a party girl and getting into all that stuff, so if she's suing E-Trade, then she should sue any other comedian or show that refers to her lifestyle.

It really is a shame. She was great in Mean Girls, and her career has just gone downhill from there.

Playing devil's advocate for a sec, my guess would be that the Milk-a-holic remark combined with the Lindsay name was what ruffled Lohan's feathers.

Had the E-Trade commercial aired w/either just the Lindsay name or just the Milk-a-holic remark; she probably wouldn't have filed suit. I've known at least a couple of girls named Lindsay, so it's not like it's an exclusive name.

My response (to her): Tough Tilly!

Somebody should send Ms. Lohan both the Cargo Bay and Attention Whore pics.

I think this case is a whole lot more idiotic. Family Guy directly made a joke about Sarah Palin's family...this commercial called a girl Lindsay. Lindsay, in America, is the 380th most popular name in America in 2008, and was all the way up at 169 in 1999. Sure, that may not sound huge, but there is also Lindsey which is 277th in 2008. All in all, still a popular name, even if it's fairly far down on the list.

The point being...taking a jab directly at Sarah Palin's kid is not the same as using a very popular American name in a commercial that just happens to be linked to a pathetic drunk of an "actress"

Granted I do not follow tabloids much if at all, but whenever I have seen her name mentioned in one, it is always as Lohan xyz or Lindsay Lohan xyz, and never simply "Lindsay". Plus, she does not have a unique name at all. According to the US Social Security Administration, Lindsay was the 46 most popular girls name in 1986 (the year she was born). Cher and Madonna do not even make the top 1000 of the last 30 years.

Good luck with the burden of proof, Ms. Lohan

      Get over yourself already! Even if she is as recognizable as Madonna or Cher (debatable IMHO) it's for all the wrong reasons.

My money is on it either being her mother or her dirtbag father. If there are two people in this world who are bigger attention whores than Lindsey Lohan, it's her parents.

They should counter-sue. For $200M. I'm serious. Shut her the frig up.

The $100 M was just a request in the complaint. It's not like Lohan would get $100 M even if she won.

Why would they settle? There's absolutely no case and the judge should order Lindsay Whorehan to pay for E-Trade's legal costs...

In some cases, a pre-trial settlement can be cheaper than lawyer's fees once a trial date is picked.
It sucks, since E-Trade is in the right, but I could easily see the threat of a trial and legal costs forcing E-Trade to do a quick settlement.
