Lindsay Lohan’s lawsuit against Take-Two Interactive and Rockstar Games has been in a pending state for a few years now.
In the suit, Lohan claims her looks were stolen and used for the Grand Theft Auto V character Lacey Jonas.
New York Supreme Court Judge, Joan Kennedy, wrote in a ruling that the case will not be dismissed and will officially proceed. Still, Kennedy said Lohan “can’t rely upon defendants’ documents aiming to show the images in question don’t show Lohan.”
Lohan’s legal team shot back with dozens of photos comparing real images of Lohan that strongly suggest Rockstar used her as a reference for the game. Lohan added that GTA V and Rockstar was interested in “financial gain” over anything else.
“The Defendants were in the business of selling games as opposed to artists displaying artwork in galleries for profit where unauthorized images or portraits of individuals were reproduced in limited editions as opposed to the mass production for commercial promotion and financial gain,” reads a line from the complaint.
No major updates have been released about the lawsuits progress.
