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 E*Trade, 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 E*Trade 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.

    She'll pay for the lawyers, or she might buy more milk...

    Is she required to share the proceeds with the other 250,000 Lindsays ?

    A baby named Lindsay might be anybody, but an alcoho... um... I mean milk-aholic Lindsay could, according to her lawyers, only be Lindsay Lohan. Brilliant.

    I assume that all Lindsays of this world are now clear to start forming a line with their claims...

    I think she'll use that money to get her life in shape and turn over a new leaf.

    Or roll it up and smoke it.

    Or chop it up and snort it.

    Or pay for jailtime protection.

    Re:

    Apart from lactose intolerant babies when did you see one that was not milk-aholic?

    more likely she's practicing hanging out on better street corners asking for spare change. If not now, soon.

    So sad really.
