Lohan contends that Lacey Jonas, an in-game character, was used to market the game, but the courts have reached another conclusion. She also alleged that one of the loading screens in GTA V showing a blonde women in a red bikini, was based on her.
While New York's Court of Appeals has concluded that computer-generated images can be legally considered portraits, it has upheld that the images in question do not resemble Lohan.
Actress Lindsay Lohan arrives for the presentation of the Gareth Pugh Spring/Summer 2016 collection during London Fashion Week in London, Britain, September 19, 2015.
At the time, legal expert Zachary Strebeck noted in his Gamasutra blog that "under NY publicity rights law, "any recognizable likeness, not just an actual photograph" is protected". "I think Winston Churchill would be surprised to hear that". What concluded yesterday was an appeal to New York State's highest court, the Court of Appeals, which didn't fare any better.

A Little More Personal (Raw) recording artist Lindsay Lohan's been keeping busy in 2018 popping up in Lawyer.com ads, but a ruling from NY state's highest court is taking a bit of luster away from those self-deprecating spots.
Lohan's movies include 1998's "The Parent Trap" and 2004's "Mean Girls", but acting roles became harder to find following legal and other problems.

She even told Jimmy Kimmel to "zip that lip" about Trump in a recent interview while sitting on the iconic Roseanne couch. Roseanne Barr , the show's co-creator and star, had previously said she wanted to do another season.
Then there was the lawsuit against rapper Pitbull.
From the get-go, it was apparent that Lindsay is trying to cash in from what she felt was her likeness in the game.
The lawsuit, which was filed back in 2014, stated, "The portraits of the Plaintiff [Lohan] incorporated her image, likeness, clothing, outfits, Plaintiff's clothing line products, ensemble in the form of hats, hair style, sunglasses, jean shorts worn by the Plaintiff that were for sale to the public at least two years".
