New York – A judge has dismissed a lawsuit filed by Lindsay Lohan against Pitbull, Ne-Yo and Afrojack in relation to the song, “Give Me Everything,” which was released in 2011. As reported by The Wrap, the lawsuit alleged Lohan was caused emotional distress by the song in which she says there was unauthorized use of her name.
Judge Denis R. Hurley granted a motion on Thursday by the defendants to dismiss the complaint in U.S. District Court in New York.
Hurley is quoted in the report as finding, “Even if the Court were to conclude that plaintiff had sufficiently alleged that her name was used in the Song for purposes of advertising or trade, the isolated nature of the use of her name would, in and of itself, prove fatal to her New York Civil Rights Law claim.”
