E*Trade may have sealed its own fate by filing hundreds of pages detailing Lindsay Lohan’s “personal problems” and stacks of nasty comments from detractors.

In an interview with, Michael Lohan called the documents “desperate” and “extremely unprofessional.”

“What the hell do these documents have to do with Lindsay’s lawsuit?” he told exclusively. “It seems E*Trades’ lawyers are grasping at straws now. They know they’re wrong and they’re desperate and they’re trying to convolute things.”

The actress, 23, is suing E*Trade for running a TV ad featuring a “milk-a-holic” baby named Lindsay, claiming the ad defames her character.

The documents, filed in Nassau County Supreme Court, detail Lindsay’s drug abuse, brushes with the law and club brawls along with reams of profanity-laced internet comments from the starlet’s detractors.

One commentor calls Lindsay “a pot-stirring, lazy, irresponsible, disrespectful little drama queen.”

“Why does anyone want to know what this trainwreck is doing?” Another adds. “She is the classic child star. A little success (parents pushed her into the business) at a young age and then she thinks she’s the poo.”

“How can she pay her rent and pay for her coke?” another comment reads.

“Why would they bring up Lindsay’s personal life if not to exploit her and her family? Michael told “It surprises me that a company like E*Trade, which you would think has professional attorneys, is acting anything but by releasing these documents.”

A source close to Lohan told that E*Trade knew what they were doing when they filed the papers.

“This is what you call tainting the jury. You put all that out there for the public to see and it poisons the jury pool. It’s an invasion of the family’s privacy,” the insider said. “This is what companies do to make sure someone doesn’t get a fair trial. These people E*Trade released comments from regular people? Who cares? To attach that is an attempt to poison the jury pre-trial. That’s what big companies do.”
