Saliann Scarpulla, a senior judge from the Manhattan Supreme Court has issued a non-permanent court order, restraining Michael Jr. Lohan & Lindsay Loahn from promoting, marketing or launching their Fashion app “Vigme”. This order followed FIma Potik’s filing of suit where he has declared that these siblings have successfully stolen business secrets from his company Spotted Friend and are launching a competitive business in an otherwise rather monopolistic idea of a business that he had launched.

According to their plea, Ravi Batra, the lawyer representing th eLohan siblings exclaims that Potik is managing to blow his trumpet based on an app that he has yet to create. He terms their case hollow and meritless
