Lindsay Lohan’s family considering lawsuit against “Dogs” producers


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: We should have seen this coming. Mere days after producers revealed that Lydia Hearst will be playing a spoiled, drug-addled, former movie star modeled after tabloid sensation Lindsay Lohan, LiLo’s publicity-starved mother, Dina, is trying to cash in.

Dina Lohan says the movie, titled “Dogs in Pocketbooks,” is “definitely based on Lindsay’s likeness,” and she believes that the family has “a very strong case” to bring against the film’s producers.

“It’s shadowing E*TRADE,” Dina said, according to TMZ.

Does anyone want to remind Dina that the suit she’s referring to was withdrawn from court with prejudice, so referencing it doesn’t accomplish much?

Anyhow, TMZ goes on to say that Lohans have, indeed, contacted their lawyer and plan to go after “Dogs” for hurting Lindsay’s feelings.

“They are again using her likeness without her being compensated,” said Lohan family attorney Stephanie Ovadia. “Not only that but they are advertising the fact that they are using her likeness.”
