Remember that time Lindsay Lohan had trouble with the law? Bet you’re thinking “which time?” Besides other stints with the law (she was sentenced to rehab on March 20, 2013 in order to avoid a six-month jail sentence), she recently filed a lawsuit against her clothing company, 6126. As sad as it is that she keeps having legal issues, it is nice to see Lindsay as a plaintiff, for a change.
Lindsay filed a $1.1 million lawsuit against the clothing manufacturer of her company, 6126. The manufacturer is D.N.A.M. Apparel Industries, who licensed the “6126” trademark to manufacture clothing and agreed to pay Lindsay royalties. According to Lindsay’s rep, the license was revoked due to several breaches, including failure to pay royalties and using Lindsay’s designs for other labels. The causes of actions listed in the lawsuit were breach of contract based on a written agreement, fraud based on promise without intent to perform, and federal trademark infringement. Further, the complaint held that Lohan should have received $200,000, which would be 10% of net sales in excess of $100,000, and also that she never received an additional $900,000 in “guaranteed royalties” during the last three years.
With all of the lack of job prospects, and the plethora of attorney’s fees that Lindsay has been racking up, it is understandable that she is looking to legal action as a source of income.
Lindsay has become quite familiar with the law. Unfortunately, since 2007, she is more familiar with the defendant side of criminal court. The last time Lindsay was a plaintiff she was suing Etrade, where she insisted that the “milkaholic” baby named Lindsay was named after her. In that case, she sued for pain and suffering for using her name as a parody of her life. She also threatened to sue Pitbull for using her name in his song, Give Me Everything, in which the lyrics stated “I got it locked up like Lindsay Lohan.”
Lindsay and her business partner, Kristy Kaylor, are still in business and are currently working on a licensing deal with another company.
