Lindsay Lohan Seeks $100m From E-Trade Over Babymilkgate

The Boston Herald reports that actress Lindsay Lohan is suing E-Trade for $100m, claiming that the firm has improperly used her 'likeness, name, characterization and personality without permission' in a promotional ad which debuted during Super Bowl XLIV last month.

A spokesperson for Grey Group, which produced the ad, said that they had simply used a popular baby's name.

Ms Lohan's lawyer said: 'They used the name 'Lindsay'. They're using her name as a parody of her life. Why didn't they use the name 'Susan' ? This is a subliminal message. Everybody's talking about it, and saying it's Lindsay Lohan'.

The actress is seeking $50m in exemplary damages, and $50m in compensation.
