Lohan satisfied with settlement
NEW YORK — A lawyer says Lindsay Lohan is ‘‘satisfied’’ to have resolved her $100 million New York City lawsuit over an E-Trade television commercial featuring talking babies.
Lawyer Anand Ahuja said Tuesday the ‘‘Mean Girls’’ movie star reached a settlement with the brokerage before withdrawing the lawsuit a day earlier. Ahuja and an E-Trade Financial Corp. spokeswoman said the terms of the agreement are confidential.
Lohan had claimed E-Trade was referring to her in a Super Bowl ad that featured babies talking about a ‘‘milkaholic’’ named Lindsay.
