She claimed that the trashy character, Lacey Jonas, is created after her so she should be compensated by Take-Two.

Fahey also went on record that a computer image could be considered a "portrait", which could be used in invasion of privacy claims.

Lohan's claim was that Lacey Jonas was essentially a "portrait" of Lohan, and that the game used her likeness to distribute promotional material, including putting the character on the box art, without her written consent.

Grand Theft Auto V is one of the most expensive video games in history with a budget of $267 million.

When analyzing what constitutes a "portrait" under NY state law, Associate Judge Eugene Fahey discusses how digital technology evolves and that laws must be interpreted with an eye toward encouraging invention. However, Lohan filed an appeal. A panel of five judges decided in 2016 that since Rockstar isn't explicitly using Lohan to sell the game they're in the clear.

But Judge Eugene Fahey said Lohan's case could not prevail as the game merely showed a generic "20-something" woman, without suggesting it was her.

The courts ultimately decided that it did not noting that the characterization was "indistinct, satirical representations of the style, look, and persona of a modern, beach-going young woman that are not reasonably identifiable as plaintiff". The official lawsuit claimed that Lacy Jonas is an "unequivocal" reference to Lohan. Pitbull's lyrics stated: "So, I'm tip-toein', to keep flowin', I got it locked up, like Lindsay Lohan", and Lohan was not able to win her cases against the conservative news network or the entertainer.
