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. Aside from alienating Lindsays the world over, it remains unclear why Lohan would want to claim that an annoying, relationship-wrecking floozy would have been 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.
