Lindsay lohan’s lawsuit Against the Creators of “Grand Theft Auto V” thrown out

case closed 

Lindsay Lohan versus Grand Theft Auto 5 was still a thing, apparently. NewYork State’s Court of Appeals has rejected an appeal filed by Lindsay Lohan’s lawyers against GTA 5 parent company Take-Two.

Lohan has been fighting the company over what she perceived as her likeness appearing in the game and its marketing materials without her explicit consent.

The lawsuit was filed in the late 2013-2014, “Lohan argues that defendants purposefully used Lohan’s bikini, shoulder-length blonde hair, jewelry, cell phone, and ‘signature peace sign’ pose’ in one image, and used Lohan’s likeness in another image by appropriating facial features, body type, physical appearance, hair, hat, sunglasses, jean shorts, and loose white top, Lohan was upset over the game character Lacey Jonas who she felt was a look and sound-alike.”

After 5 years of back and forth, a Newyork judge has ruled against the motion, on March 29,  the Court of Appeals ruled the depiction was “nothing more than cultural comment,” according to Reuters.

The ruling stated that “artistic renderings are indistinct, satirical representations of the style, look, and persona of a modern, beach-going young woman that are not reasonably identifiable as plaintiff.” She was also miffed over the marketing images of a gal on the beach in a bikini, and another of a gal being frisked by a police officer.

Johnson & Johnson ordered to pay $417 million after woman claims powder gave her cancer.

Popular drug company Johnson & Johnson has been ordered by a US court to pay $417 million in compensation to a woman who claimed she got ovarian cancer after using the company’s talc-based products.

The case is one of the many lawsuits brought against the company nationwide alleging the company failed to warn consumers of the risk of cancer from talc in its products.

According to court documents, the woman, named Eva Echeverria, used the company’s talc powder from the 1950s until 2016. She was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 2007.

Johnson & Johnson executives said in a statement that the company would lodge an appeal.

“We will appeal today’s verdict because we are guided by the science, which supports the safety of Johnson’s Baby Powder,” they said.

This will be the largest amount of money awarded yet in a number of lawsuits that claim the company did not adequately warn customers about potential cancer risks from its talc-based products.
