Dr. Luke’s multi-million dollar defamation case against Kesha could serve as a major precedent against inexperienced, up-and-coming stars, PR firms, and lawyers.
In a major victory for Dr. Luke, New York Supreme Court Justice Jennifer Schecter has authorized an expansion of the producer’s defamation lawsuit against Kesha – real name Kesha Rose Serbert.
Judge Schecter will allow Lukas ‘Dr. Luke’ Gottwald and his legal team to present documents alleging that she planned a smear campaign against the famed producer.
But, what’s this case all about?
In 2014, Kesha filed a civil lawsuit in California. Filed in Los Angeles Superior Court, the singer made several damning allegations against Dr. Luke.
She accused Gottwald of sexually, physically, and emotionally abusing her during their decade-long professional relationship.
