So much news is getting lost with the wall-to-wall coverage of Michael Jackson: his death, the autopsy, the memorial service, the cost of the memorial service…

While all that’s been going on, turns out Lindsay Lohan a) created and launched a tanning spray called Sevin Nyne and 2) is being sued over the fake-tan formula.  Who knew?!

The facts, according to Perez Hilton:

The tanning mist that LOLhan launched this summer, co-developed with Lorit Simon, a Las Vegas celebrity air-brusher, was supposedly stolen from chemist Jennifer Sunday.

In January, Simon signed a confidentiality agreement with Sunday’s company, White Wave International Labs, as the two had been negotiating over samples of the tanning mist, but could never agree on a price.

“The next thing we know, Lorit Simon and Lindsay Lohan are partnering and Ms. Lohan is taking credit for developing this formula, which she indeed had no role in,” said Sunday’s attorney.

Lindsay and her business partner Lorit are being sued for alleged breach of contract, theft of trade secrets, civil conspiracy, intentional interference with contractual relations and deceptive and unfair trade practices.

Sounds pretty serious, right?  I’d certainly expect a team of celebrity legal eagles to fly in for this one.  But – little did we know – Lindsay Lohan is apparently an actress, singer, model and…defense attorney.

She  responded to the accusations without legal representation.  In 138 characters.  On Twitter.

Quick, someone get Judge Wapner a Twitter account and we can resolve this on the TweetDeck Court.
