I don’t know what Lindsay Lohan was on when her lawyer called with the business pitch to sue ETrade (ETFC) for $100 million, but apparently they were a derivative of crazy pills.
“They’re using her name as a parody of her life. Why didn’t they use the name Susan? This is a subliminal message. Everybody’s talking about it and saying it’s Lindsay Lohan,” Stephanie Ovadia, Lohan’s lawyer, told the NY Post. Sounds like someone is a little insecure and thinks “everybody’s” talking about her. I don’t think this one is a recognized legal theory.
Ovadia asserts Lohan has elevated ‘Lindsay’ to the same sort of one-off recognition status as ‘Madonna’ or ‘Cher’. Really? That doesn’t pass the laugh test — especially when ETrade says Lindsay is the name of someone from their account team.
Lindsay Lohan needs to get out of her megalomaniacal bubble and her lawyer needs a call from the State Bar Association. At the very least, ETrade should sue for the frivolous lawsuit.
