For years, Lohan has pursued this case as her once rising star has diminished in Hollywood due to her drug use and personal problems. They said Lacey Jonas character was not "reasonably identifiable" as Lohan. In another image, Jonas wears denim shorts, a fedora, large sunglasses, and a white T-shirt while being frisked by a female police officer.

New York's Court of Appeals issued a ruling this week, dismissing the lawsuit against Rockstar Games and its parent company, Take-Two.

"[The] artistic renderings are indistinct, satirical representations of the style, look and persona of a modern, beach-going young woman. that is not recognisable as plaintiff", Judge Eugene Fahey wrote in his ruling.

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". The state Court of Appeals called Take-Two Interactive Software Inc's depictions "nothing more than cultural comment" in a 6-0 vote.

For instance, in 2010, Lohan sued E-Trade over a Super Bowl ad that featured a "milkaholic" baby named Lindsay.

However, it appears that Lohan and her lawyers still haven't had enough, with the party filing an appeal against the decision. Lohan claimed he defamed her by rapping "So, I'm tip-toein', to keep flowin', I got it locked up, like Lindsay Lohan".

At the time, Rockstar said Lohan was just wanting attention, but Lohan's lawyers expanded the initial complaint later in 2014.

By now, the former movie star is perhaps more famous for her legal run-ins than her acting credits: She's been arrested on multiple occasions for charges ranging from shoplifting and reckless driving to violating her parole.

It may have been a refreshing appearance for fans who hadn't seen Lohan's face in a while. "Rather, she's a notorious recidivist who obviously had high-powered attorneys at the ready during her darkest days".
