Fox News has since released a statement regarding the lawsuit: "We will defend this case to the fullest. The remark about which Lindsay and Dina Lohan complain was made on live television by a guest nearly a year ago. We removed the segment from our archives altogether last February and also apologized on-air. At that time, the Lohans did not make any demands for money, and we are surprised they are doing so now."
Lindsay Lohan is headed to court… and this time, she’s not the one in trouble with the law!
The 28-year-old and her mother Dina are reportedly suing Fox News after journalist Michelle Fields made a comment about the mother and daughter doing cocaine together on the Feb. 4, 2013 episode of ‘Hannity.’

According to a document filed on behalf of the ‘Mean Girls’ actress and her mother and obtained by E! News, they had previously launched a complaint over the comments in February last year, demanding Fox write a retraction and remove the clip, as well as any related material, from its website.
However, the program only opted to issue a statement in which they admitted Michelle's comment about the pair's drug use wasn't verified and failed to remove the clip, which continued to circulate on the web.

The claim was made during the 'Great American Panel' section of 'Hannity' during a discussion about the late actor Philip Seymour Hoffman's heroin overdose and which celebrities could potentially follow in his footsteps.
Michelle quipped: "Lindsay's mom is doing cocaine with her."

The mother daughter team are reported to be seeking compensation and punitive damages, claiming that since the comments aired they have suffered "severe mental and emotional distress; embarrassment and humiliation; pain and suffering; and economic loss, including loss of income, entertainment and acting contracts, present and future diminished income and economic opportunities."
Lawyer David J. Hernandez and Attorney Mark Jay Heller - who officially filed the complaint - have also rendered the comments "outrageously slanderous and defamatory" and "false."
