Rockstar Calls Lindsay Lohan's GTA V Lawsuit 'Frivolous'

August 27, 2014 - GamePolitics Staff

Grand Theft Auto V maker Rockstar Games and its parent company Take-Two Interactive responded to Lindsay Lohan's lawsuit in a Manhattan Court filing on Tuesday. The companies said in their response to Lohan's lawsuit that the Hollywood star "filed [the lawsuit] for publicity purposes." They also called the lawsuit frivolous.

They are asking the court to dismiss the lawsuit and for Lohan to pay its legal fees.

Lindsay Lohan filed the lawsuit against Rockstar in July, claiming that her likeness, voice and style was used by Rock Star for the Lacey Jonas character in Grand Theft Auto V.

In its filing, Take-Two countered that the only similarities between Lohan and the fictional character are that they are both young, blonde-haired females.

Quite sad. Even if they did use her as an influence to the character...that would constitute as a parody and falls well into protected fair use and first amendment rules.

Clearly the ones that benefit from this are the lawyers!
