For the frivolous lawsuit hall of fame

Reuters reports that Lindsay Lohan is suing E*Trade for $100 million over its Super Bowl ad that featured a milkaholic baby named Lindsay:

Lohan alleged that online brokerage’s use in the ad the girl, also named Lindsay, improperly invoked her “likeness, name, characterization, and personality” without permission, violating her right of privacy. …

The New York Post reported the lawsuit earlier Tuesday. It said [Lohan’s lawyer Stephanie] Ovadia maintained that Lohan has the same “single-name” recognition as celebrities like Oprah Winfrey and Madonna. …

“Lindsay” was in 2008 the 380th most popular name for newborn American girls, according to the U.S. Social Security Administration. That was down from 241th in 2004, when Lohan’s popular film “Mean Girls” was released.

What a waste of time, money, and effort. Lohan ought to be ashamed of herself.
