Even though public opinion is firmly on her side, Kesha has faced nothing but obstacles in her legal battle against Lukasz Sebastian “Dr. Luke” Gottwald, the producer and label boss who, Kesha claims, spent years emotionally and sexually abusing her. But she’s not done yet. Earlier this month, as Billboard reported, Kesha found herself a new law firm in her legal battle against Luke. And while her lawsuit is currently going through a New York court, The Hollywood Reporter points out that she’s now filing another lawsuit against Luke, this time in California.
A previous California claim against Luke had been put on hold, but now Kesha and her attorneys are taking another run at him; Luke just learned about it yesterday morning. The new lawsuit seems like it will include many of the same claims as the New York lawsuit, and since those claims have already been thrown out, Judge Barbara M. Scheper on Monday said she had planned to invite a motion to dismiss the action.
