Lindsay Lohan’s lawsuit against rapper Armando Perez, known as "Pitbull," has been dismissed, and the actress’ attorney in Long Island has been fined $1,500 after the judge found evidence of plagiarism in her court papers. The lyrics of Perez’s song "Give Me Everything" include the passage "So, I’m tiptoein’, to keep flowin’ / I got it locked up like Lindsay Lohan." In her suit against the rapper and record companies, Lohan claimed that use of her name violated New York’s Civil Rights Law. But Eastern District Judge Denis Hurley (See Profile) ruled in Lohan v. Perez, 11-cv-05413, that the lyrics are a protected work of art under the First Amendment. Hurley also found that Lohan’s name was not used in the song for advertising or marketing purposes of trade, an element needed to prevail.
