E*Trade Settles Lindsay Lohan's Milkaholic Lawsuit

from the who-paid-whom? dept

Earlier this year, we discussed the absolutely ridiculous lawsuit that Lindsay Lohan filed against ETrade, because one of its commercials involving babies talking to each other mentioned another baby, named Lindsay, who is referred to as a “milkaholic.” There’s nothing in that commercial that implies the “Lindsay” in question is Lindsay Lohan. The name itself is quite popular, with approximately 250,000 Lindsays around these days. But, still, Lohan’s lawyers claimed that it was a right of publicity violation. And, while we were looking forward to the trial, it appears Lohan has some bigger issues to deal with, and somehow has worked out a “settlement” with ETrade on the case, with the report being that E*Trade actually paid up some money. If that’s true, it would almost certainly be for a tiny amount (less than what it would cost the lawyers if the lawsuit were to move forward). Perhaps she can put that spare change to use by paying for some new lawyers.
