Lindsay Lohan’s idiotic lawsuit against E*Trade doesn’t look quite as idiotic this morning, as the actress reportedly walked away with some cash when E*Trade decided to settle rather than have the case drag on. At issue was Lohan’s claim that the “milkaholic” named Lindsay in E*Trade’s Super Bowl spot from Grey clearly referred to her — just by the first-name reference. It remains unclear why Lohan would want to claim that an annoying floozy was clearly inspired by her, but she is notoriously in need of money these days, so apparently anything goes. If E*Trade airs another Super Bowl spot this winter, it should really get its money’s worth and name a character Madonna.
