Kesha suffers another setback in court battle with Dr Luke

Kesha suffers another setback in court battle with Dr Luke

The judge also refused to accept Kesha's attempt to employ a Californian labor law which argues that her contract should have been terminated after seven years, because the legal battles are taking place in NY.

The pop star recently amended her lawsuit against the producer, arguing for a third time that she should be released from her contract on the basis of unpaid royalties and Luke's alleged refusal to support or release Kesha's next album. The judge has also taken into account over $1 million in royalties that Kesha apparently has to pay Gottwald, because up until this point, this whole thing's been a cake walk for her. Recall that previous year, a New York Supreme Court Judge dismissed her sexual assault claims and ruled in favour of Luke.

The 30-year-old singer filed an amended lawsuit in her attempt to leave her contract with the music producer. Kesha's legal team has also argued that holding up production on her third album is a breach of contract on Gottwald's part.

Kesha lost another round of legal actions against music producer Dr. Luke.

"It is speculative, not justiciable, whether Sony's contract is ending and whether it will be able to assist after this month", responds the judge.

Authorities stated officers had been called to Westminster Bridge in the afternoon amid reports of a "firearms incident". In addition to the attacker and the stabbed police officer, two other people have died and 20 more were injured.

In her most recent filing, Kesha had claimed that Dr. Luke was trying to "punish" her for standing her ground - and had cut off her access to both her finances and bank statements.

"You can get a divorce from an abusive spouse".

In a somewhat desperate move, Kesha also asked the NY judge to honor a California law referred to as the "Seven Year Rule" on personal service contracts. You can dissolve a partnership if the relationship becomes irreconcilable. "Thus, Kesha may not assert a counterclaim for breach" of law.

However, Variety reported Tuesday that Judge Shirley Kornreich rejected the motion to amend her complaint after having previously dismissed last year her claim of sexual assault and abuse as grounds for voiding the contract. "Moreover, the single 1944 case cited by Kesha that mentions California's public policy in enacting 2855 does not demonstrate an overriding public interest that is materially greater than New York's interest in enforcing the parties' choice of NY law".
