Taylor Swift got a federal judge to fan girl out in a legal victory in which her Honor snatched the singer’s lyrics to make her point.
A songwriter had sued Taylor, claiming she stole his song “Haters Gone Hate” in creating “Shake it Off.”
Judge Gail Standish wasn’t having it, and set a dismissal in motion. Here’s what Judge Standish wrote:
“At present, the Court is not saying that Braham can never, ever, ever get his case back in court. But for now, we have got problems, and the Court is not sure Braham can solve them”
She goes on, saying the lawsuit “has a blank space — one that requires Braham to do more than write his name.”
But Judge Standish isn’t done, saying the lawsuit is fundamentally deficient and “Band-Aids will not fix the bullet holes in the case.”
And of course, she ends by ruling, “At least for the moment, Defendants have shaken off this lawsuit.”
