Lindsay Lohan lawsuit on hold

Lindsay Lohan

Lindsay Lohan will not be served legal documents initiating a lawsuit filed against her by D.N.A.M. Apparel Industries over a joint venture that ended three years ago.

TMZ reports the actress is being sued by D.N.A.M. Apparel Industries over the actress’ botched clothing line 6126.

The company, which manufactured the collection between 2009-2010, is seeking $5 million in damages in court documents filed last May.

Executives claim Lindsay’s “drug-addled image” made their products “unsellable”, according to the website.

They claim to have lost millions of dollars on their investment as a result.

New legal documents now show D.N.A.M. bosses won’t serve Lindsay until she leaves her court-ordered rehab programme in August.

The move is “a gesture of good faith and so as not to disturb her healing process,” according to the plaintiff.

As TMZ reports, litigation cannot begin until Lindsay is served with the paperwork.

The actress previously sued D.N.A.M. for $1.1 million.

She claims executives licensed the clothing line’s trademark without paying her an agreed-upon sum.

Lindsay, 26, entered rehab last month after pleading no contest to reckless driving and lying to police investigating her June 2012 car crash in Santa Monica, California.

She is expected to complete her 90-day programme at Cliffside Malibu in California in mid-August after switching facilities earlier this month.

The actress has been in and out of rehab several times in the past to work on substance abuse issues.

She has yet to comment publicly on the most recent filings by D.N.A.M.
