According to the answer we got from FASA (and listed in the Q&A):

Luck of the Irish:
Q1: When do you LotI someone else's LotI? Is it declared before the first LotI is
rolled or played after the first LotI is rolled?
A1: Before the first one takes effect. Otherwise, what's the point?

This is a bit ambiguous and I think I am going to write them for a clarification.

Here's an example on how Loki and I play it.
Loki plays a Metahuman Prejudice on my Skwraaaaaark!. I throw out my LotI to try
and cancel the MP. Loki decides to try and LotI my LotI. So he plays his LotI
and rolls. He fails. So I then roll for my LotI and fail. (Yes, I always fail.
I haven't made a LotI roll in more than 3 weeks.) Skwraaaaaark! goes back into
the deck and I have to dig out my 10 nuyen that I already dumped into the pot.
