Lindsay Lohan pushes pedal on Grand Theft Auto 5 lawsuit

Lindsay Lohan's 10-page lawsuit against Take-Two Interactive for allegedly using her likeness without permission in Grand Theft Auto 5 is now a 67-page complaint. The Hollywood Reporter details the new version, which has been amended to allow for this type of lawsuit to progress under New York state law.

THR explains that the state's publicity rights statute revolves around "advertising" or "trade" work. So, instead of the lawsuit being centered around the character Lacey Jonas, it has pivoted to focusing on the bikini-clad model found all over the game's advertising. Lohan's lawyers claim the image is used to "evoke the persona and image" of Lohan, based on a photo taken of the actress in 2007. Please, dear reader, ignore that nearly every woo girl since 1968 has been making peace signs to a camera when available.

Take-Two previously stated that the actress' lawsuit was "filed for publicity purposes." What a bizarre industry. The two most high-profile lawsuits currently going on are by Lindsay Lohan and the other is from the incarcerated former dictator of Panama, Manuel Noriega, for the use of his image in Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, which is being argued in court by former New York City Mayor and U.S. Attorney Rudy Giuliani.
