Back in March, Lindsay Lohan filed a suit against E*Trade, claiming that the baby in the brokerage’s latest commercial was based on her life. Lohan came to this conclusion because the character’s name is Lindsay, she’s referred to as a “milk-a-holic,” and there’s a suggestion that the young one is a man-stealing tramp (she also claimed that though the name “Lohan” is never mentioned, she’s attained first name recognition. Plus, the stuff about the baby being a strung out slut). For the grave offense, Lohan demanded the spots pulled, and $100 million for the emotional distress they caused her. At the time, E*Trade said the bitch be crazy, and claimed that they used the name Lindsay because it’s “a popular baby name” and not because they were trying to insinuate that Lohan is some sort of strung out whore (baby). They also shot back that Lindsay does not have “one name” recognition like “Madonna” or “RuPaul” or “Lloyd,” and that the commercial could have been about any one of the 250,000 people named Lindsay in the U.S. Lohan’s lawyers recently responded. First, her attorneys would like to make clear, the issue isn’t “how many people in the USA are with the name ‘Lindsay’,” the issue is “how many celebrities are with this name ‘Lindsay’ in the USA, and then in the context, manner, characterization, persona.” For instance, when you take the name “Tiger” and put it in the context of golf or proclivity skanky ass bitches, it’s obvious you’re talking about Tiger Woods. To that end, it’s apparently patently obvious that when you have the name “Lindsay” in the context of an alcoholic “bimbus” (the lawyer’s words), we’re talking about Lindsay Lohan.

The brief then goes into a “process of elimination” among Lindsay Lohan, Lindsey Vonn, Lindsay Davenport and the two other Lindsay actresses: “The type of a particular role and persona, the role of an alcoholic bimbus woman, that Defendants were looking for in their said commercial, none of the other celebrity “Lindsay” as referred by Defendants … fits into.”

Essentially, [the lawyer] says that none of the other famous Lindsays are considered alcoholic bimbuses (bimbi?) like her client is. As proof, the brief cites tabloid headlines like RadarOnline’s “Whoops! Kate Hudson Almost Does A ‘Lindsay'”

    @3 Easy to say now. That standing naked in your doorway might change your mind in under 38 milliseconds.

    Definitely a certain je ne sais quoi*.

    You portrayed my client as a whore; a bimbus; and referenced her alcoholism so we want $100 million.

    Other than that, I have no concerns.

    I don’t care what anybody says– lights on, over the covers, preferably post-line.

    She is a slut. Bat shit crazy. Chomps carpet. Hot as hell. Addicted to drugs and booze. And a real red head. What is not to like?

    If her attorneys are so concerned about her name & persona; why are they not advising her to do a “Michael Jackson”. Certainly that would be a career move that would greatly enhance the value of her estate and provide said attorneys with a nice little lifetime annuity. Obviously the people advising her are morons for letting her miss that opportunity.

    @bike- would pulling an MJ entail:

    – OD’ing
    – changing her race
    – striking up a friendship with Macaulay Culkin?

    I still mostly rely on Parent Trap-era Lindsay Lohan for my masturbatory needs.

    The old comments are being imported over. As there are hundreds of thousands of comments, it takes a little while. If your friend comes to this post tonight the old comments will be back.

    I don’t know if anyone else feels that way – but watched that E-trade commercial – and think ole-Lindsay has a point. Bet she will get some $$ out of it
