In what must be a refreshing switch of perspectives within the legal system, and possibly an attempt to recoup some of the piles of dough she's out, actress Lindsay Lohan has gotten herself back into the court's ledger today, only this time she's instigating.Lohan has filed a lawsuit against a former fashion biz partner, alleging the Los Angeles clothing manufacturer is illegally trading on her company's brand name, according to City News Service.

The complaint, filed today in Los Angeles federal court, claims D.N.A.M. Apparel Industries is violating federal trademark and contract law by selling clothing under the name of Lohan's 6126 Collection. The suit is asking the company give full control of the merchandise under the 6126 label to Lohan, and alleges they owe her over $1 million in royalties.

Perhaps, should this be settled favorably for Lohan, she can climb out of her debt hole and pay her ex-attorney Shawn Holley, and ensure her storage units don't veer close to the auction block again.
