Lindsay Lohan is suing the E*trade Baby because he has a milkaholic baby girlfriend named Lindsay. And she’s convinced — and perhaps rightly so — that they are making fun of her.
Lindsay is suing the E-trade company because she thinks their commercial clearly was referencing her and her alone. E*trade naturally argues that there are 250,000 women named Lindsay in the US. Besides Lindsay doesn’t have a trademark on her first name, like some celebs we could name like, oh say, Oprah, Cher, Madonna, Beyonce or even kinda Gaga.
Here’s what Lindsay’s lawyer, Stephanie Ovadia, has to say against E-trade’s argument. And we bet this legal beagle gets paid by the word.
She takes the E*Trade argument to task: “The issue, in (sic) case at bar, is not how many people in the USA are with the name ‘Lindsay’ or ‘Lindsey’. The issue is how many celebrities are with this name ‘Lindsay’ in the USA, and then (sic) in the context, manner, characterization, persona…If Defendants take this name, ‘Lindsay’ in context of a celebrity name (sic) then by Defendants’ own admission, there are only a few limited celebrities with this name around, and this number may not be more than four or five.’ Yawn. We need a nap.
