Not only did Pitbull win the court case against Lindsay Lohan, he also did technically nothing to defend himself, because a New York federal judge sided with him.
Judge Denis Hurley granted the defendant's permission to dismiss the case, and tossed Lohan's complaint out of the window.
Hurley said the Liz & Dick actress was dead wrong on the law. The song was a work of art protected by the 1st amendment, and Lindsay's name was barely even mentioned in it, TMZ reported.
Lohan's allegation about emotional distress was also not believable.
Hurley said that such usage of her name in the song, which was only in one line, was not enough to cause necessary emotional distress.
Lohan sued the rapper for using her name in one of his hit songs
entitled Give Me Everything, claiming the song made disparaging and defamatory statements about her, as reported by The Wrap.
The troubled actress claimed it violated her privacy, and accused Pitbull of using her name for advertising purposes without her authorization.
She wanted Pitbull to surrender all the existing copies of the song to her, and halt the song distribution permanently.
