Kesha defamed Dr. Luke, judge rules in years-long legal battle

A judge ruled in favor of music producer Dr. Luke in his years-long legal battle with singer Kesha, according to court documents.

New York Supreme Court Justice Jennifer Schechter ruled Thursday that Kesha defamed Luke, born Lukasz Gottwald, by texting Lady Gaga with claims that he raped Katy Perry.

In the ruling, the judge cited Perry’s denial of the claim.

“There is no evidence whatsoever that Gottwald raped Katy Perry or that Katy Perry, whose sworn testimony is unrefuted, must not be believed,” the document reads.

Defamation claims surrounding Kesha’s accusations that Luke raped her were not fully resolved.

“This court cannot decide… who should be believed… That decision is for the jury,” the document states.

The judge also refuted Kesha’s legal team’s claims that Luke is a public figure, which would make it harder for him to claim defamation.
