Kesha Drops Lawsuit Against Dr. Luke In California

Kesha has dropped a sexual assault lawsuit in California against producer Dr. Luke, but will continue a legal action through New York’s courts.

The singer initially filed a sexual assault lawsuit against her producer in California in 2014. He later sued her in New York for breach of contract, and she countersued there with claims of rape and abuse.

The New York case took precedent over the California suit, putting it on hold, before Kesha requested apreliminary injunction in New York which she was denied. She is appealing that ruling, but a source close to her legal team confirmed she has filed to dismiss the California suit.

“Kesha is focused on getting back to work and has delivered 28 new songs to the record label,” her lawyer, Daniel Petrocelli, said in a statement to Buzzfeed News. “We have conveyed to Sony Music and the label Kesha’s strong desire to release the single and an album as soon as possible.”
