Lindsay Lohan Sues E-Trade for $100 Million

What's in a name? According to Lindsay Lohan, money!

The 23-year-old actress filed a lawsuit Monday claiming the latest E-Trade commercial violated her rights under New York's state civil-rights law... by using her name, "Lindsay."

In the ad, a baby boy apologizes to his girlfriend for not calling her the night before. She then asks, "And that milkaholic Lindsay wasn't over?"

Check out the commercial:



Lohan's lawyer said in a statement to the New York Post, "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."

Chris Brown, a spokesman for Grey Group, which produced the spot, isn't buying into this stirred-up controversy. He said the ad "just used a popular baby name that happened to be the name of someone on the account team."

The commercial created a lot of buzz after it aired during the Super Bowl and Winter Olympics. The lawsuit should make E-Trade even happier with the results!
