Lindsay Lohan

$5 Mil Lawsuit On 'Rehab Hold'

Lindsay Lohan
just learned a bad lesson while she tries to get her life back on track in rehab -- addicts get special breaks when they're sued.

As we reported, D.N.A.M. Apparel Industries -- which manufactured clothes for Lindsay's 6126 line back in 2009-2010 -- sued the actress for the massive $5 million sum in May, claiming her "drug-addled image" made the clothes unsellable ... and they lost millions as a result.

But in a twist of irony, Lindsay's "drug-addled image" just bought her more than a month to scramble a legal defense -- because D.N.A.M. has just agreed to a ceasefire while she's in treatment.

According to new court docs, D.N.A.M. won't serve Lindsay 'til she leaves rehab in mid-August "in a gesture of good faith and so as not to disturb her healing process."

FYI, the lawsuit's already been filed ... but the legal process can't begin until Lindsay has been served with the documents.

You'll recall ... Lindsay initially sued D.N.A.M. for $1.1 million, claiming the company licensed the 6126 trademark, but shortchanged her big time on hundreds of thousands of dollars she claims she was promised in exchange.

This is completely ridiculous, and Lindsay will undoubtedly win. Saying that her drug use tarnished her image and made her clothes unsellable is nonsense... if anything, 6126 was simply not well known enough. I just found out about this line about a month ago after reading about how Lindsay is doing in rehab yada ya, which I thought was awesome.

But to her defense -- alcoholism is a disease, and suing somebody for a disease fueling a "drug addled image" allegedly 'making her clothes unsellable' is unconstitutional. I mean, I'm pretty sure that violates the 8th amendment due to the humilation it inflicts on the person [Lindsay Lohan] subjected to it. I'm sure other amendments could validate why case as unconstitutional.

Also, Steve Jobs wasn't sued for being sick when he got sick... Apple kept on innovating, but his health still affected Apple's image .Likewise, other factors contribute to the 6126 clothes not selling, and that's just part of the nature of invesment and innovation. Perhaps their designs needed to be streamlined to appeal to the general public. Maybe they weren't as readily available.
