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”.

Lindsay Lohan suit against video game maker hits dead end

Lindsay Lohan suit against video game maker hits dead end

The Lindsay Lohan lawsuit against the makers of the video game Grand Theft Auto V had a good run, but a New York Court of Appeals judge on Thursday tossed out the 2014 suit that claimed a paparazzi-dashing movie star character named Lacey Jonas was based on the film star, celebrity site reported Sunday.

Ms. Lohan’s suit was filed over the character who appeared in a part of the game called “Escape Paparazzi.” The character skyrocketed to fame but was often fodder for the tabloid media and, in the video game, was chased down by camera-toting followers documenting the sultry, fictitious star’s arrests and other shenanigans.

“Sounds familiar,” a reporter quipped.

Ms. Lohan’s case survived a motion to dismiss in 2016; a New York Supreme Court judge eventually ruled against Ms. Lohan, a decision that was affirmed in the state’s appellate division, the website reported.

Could the case speed over to the U.S. Supreme Court? “Seems unlikely,” the site reported.
