There are few things I love more than people who know how to have a little fun with their day jobs, and the judge who had to humor Jessie Braham’s lawsuit against Taylor Swift over claims she ripped “Shake it Off” from him is a great example of that. She dismissed the case in style, quoting several Swift hits in the process.
“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. As currently drafted, the Complaint has a blank space — one that requires Braham to do more than write his name. And, upon consideration of the Court’s explanation … Braham may discover that mere pleading Band-Aids will not fix the bullet holes in his case. At least for the moment, Defendants have shaken off this lawsuit.”
But how was Braham ever supposed to get a fair trial when the judge clearly has such pro-Swift bias?
