How's this for news ... Lindsay Lohan is a plaintiff for a change.
We've learned Lindsay has filed a $1.1 million lawsuit against a clothing manufacturer called D.N.A.M. Apparel Industries -- claiming the company licensed Lindsay's "6126" trademark ... which Lindsay uses for her clothing line, sold at several high-end L.A. boutiques.
Lindsay started the 6126 clothing line several years ago with an entrepreneur named Kristi Kaylor.
According to the lawsuit -- filed by celebrity attorney Perry Wander -- D.N.A.M. licensed the trademark to manufacture clothing for sale internationally ... and agreed to pay Lindsay and her partner hundreds of thousands of dollars in exchange.
But Lindsay and her partner say they were shortchanged big time ... and now, they're suing, claiming they've suffered more than $1.1 million in damages.
FYI -- 6126 represents the birth date of Marilyn Monroe. In case you're slow, that's June 1, 1926. Lindsay apparently has a thing for dead actresses. We're talkin' to you Liz.
Oh yeah, Lindsay and her partner are still very much in business -- and are currently negotiating a new licensing deal with a different company.
