BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

OFF BEAT: Lindsay Lohan sues rapper Pitbull over lyrics about her


Lindsay Lohan is sick and tired of people saying what they want about her, so this time she is on the other side of the courtroom—as a plaintiff.

The actress is suing rapper Armando Christian Perez, known as Pitbull, for allegedly defamatory lyrics that caused irreparable harm, according to news reports.

The lyrics in question tie Ms. Lohan to her legal troubles, where most recently she is serving 120 hours of community service at a Los Angeles morgue as part of a shoplifting sentence, according to reports.

In the suit, which was filed in a county court in New York in August, Ms. Lohan claims Pitbull exploits her name in the song “Give Me Everything,” where he rhymes, "Hustlers move aside, so I'm tiptoeing to keep flowin'/I got it locked up like Lindsay Lohan,” according to news reports.

But Pitbull reportedly filed a countersuit against Ms. Lohan, claiming that the actress has damaged her own reputation with her numerous run-ins with the law.

The countersuit also questions whether Ms. Lohan is a resident of the state of New York and has falsely attested to her residence, according to news reports.

With experience as a plaintiff and defendant, and all her legal woes, perhaps Ms. Lohan might decide to pursue a career in criminal law.
