Lindsay Lohan’s legal battle over her fashion app is heading to trial.
The star and her younger brother, Michael, Jr., have been hit with a $60 million lawsuit from a businessman named Fima Potik, who claims the siblings stole the idea for their Vigme program from a previous project they worked on with him called Spotted Friend.
Last year, a judge issued a restraining order banning Lohan and her brother from working on the app or promoting it, and the case went back to court in New York on Wednesday.
During the hearing, Manhattan Supreme Court Judge Saliann Scarpulla set a trial date for next winter, and Lohan’s brother vowed to fight the case, telling the New York Daily News, “I have full faith in the justice system.”
The restraining order has been extended.
This is more bad news for Lohan. The was also recently ordered to complete more community service by a judge as part of her sentence relating to a 2012 reckless driving case.
