Lindsay Lohan

1st Shot Fired in Dubai War

12/31/2011 6:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan cease and desist legal documents

TMZ has obtained the cease and desist letter Lindsay Lohan fired off to a Dubai-based party planning company ... demanding they stop using her name to promote a NYE party.

We broke the story ... Lindsay believes the company has been spreading lies about her ... falsely claiming she's agreed to attend a massive New Year's Eve bash on a gigantic ocean liner.

In the letter, Lohan's attorney, Stephanie Ovadia, states the actress "will suffer harm and damage" if the company continues to use her name without permission ... and she's not afraid to sue.

Still no word back from the party people.

If she didn't sign anything saying she'd be there then she has all the right in the world o demand they stop using her name. Even coked out freaks have rights.

Just one more of the many legal expenses for LiLo as we close out 2011. How much does Shawn Chapman charge to write a letter and post it to Dubai?

its going to a P.O. Box in the united Arab Emirates..
so this letter will make great toilet paper.
she might as well try and sue those fraud internet companies that want to put money in your bank account from zimbabwa....jam that "straight to the point" Letter.. and mail it Via message in a bottle...or carrier pegeon

Well, if the party planners were scamming her name just to sell tickets, then good for her.

My point that it was done the day before was, this was not going to be very effective. The tickets were already sold. So, they take down her name the day before. Does that now mean no lawsuit, since they conformed to the cease and desist? Seems to me it wasn't a very good tactic, if they really are trying to sue.

@Richardwww

The statement "including but not limited to her right to privacy" is NOT standard on cease and desist letters.
Google cease and desist letters, and you will see that not one of the standard forms contains this statment. It was put there on purpose for a reason.

So....big FAIL on your part.

12:56 Am........Right on schdule TMZ........next step will be a carefully timed and released photo of Lindsay out and about......say around the 12:00 noon undate which would show the world "see Lindsay is right here in the USA" and not in Dubai or hiding out.....but hey what do I know I'm just a old lady on the mountain still waiting for Lohan Inc to nomiate Lindsay for sainthood as the next step in her "change"........or run into a fire and safe a child...or leap a building in a single bound....or win a olympic medal for running.....
DON'T YOU JUST LOVE A GOOD STORY..................

I see the Slug is braying like the jackass he is about running of the trolls....Other people have lives and sleep at night not set with their laptop under the blankets after the lights have been turned out.
