NEW YORK (TIP): Lindsay Lohan and her brother, Michael Lohan Jr. got some good news in a Manhattan court on Wednesday, November 4, despite Michael’s arrest a week ago in a separate case, says a Page Six report.
The Lohans won a round in their legal battle with Fima Potik, who sued them and another partner for $60 million, alleging the trio stole his idea for a fashion app called Spotted Friend to launch their own, Vigme. But Wednesday the parties agreed, pending sign-off from a judge, to lift a temporary restraining order against the Lohans and Chris Roth, which their lawyer, Ravi Batra, claims has kept the Lohans from working on their business for a year.
Batra told Page Six: “Fima has disobeyed three court orders to produce proof that he had a working app by June 2013, something he was never able to prove,” and he slammed Potik as a “celebrity leech” and “spoiled little wannabe trust-fund baby who wants to hang out with Lindsay and who got himself a lot of ink by suing.”
Potik had tried in September to put the legal battle on hold for financial reasons. Batra blasted the move this week, telling us Potik, “wants to say,
‘Sorry, I didn’t realize I was in court. I was window shopping at Macy’s.’ No, you were in court, and by the way, here’s the bill. This is a huge civics lesson for spoiled little rich brats.”
He said he’s moving for Potik to pay the Lohans’ legal fees.
Potik’s third attorney in the case, Bernard Daskal, said, “At this time we have no comment.”
When the case began, Michael Jr. was the rare member of the Lohan clan with no time before a judge. But last week he was arrested for allegedly using a forged New York State
“Executive Branch” placard on his car windshield. His lawyer in that matter, Mark Heller, told The Post, “I’m confident the case will be dismissed.”
Earlier this year, Lindsay did community service in New York to complete probation on a past reckless-driving case. Dad, Michael, is battling wife Kate Major after their kids were taken from them last week by the Florida Department of Children and Families. Mom Dina Lohan avoided jail time last year in a DWI case.
