The Kesha vs. Dr. Luke legal saga continues, as the producer's lawyer has now responded to the singer's appeal of last month's injunction denial. This comes after the "Timber" star reportedly filed for an appeal on Monday (Mar. 21) against New York Supreme Court Justice Shirley Kornreich's ruling last month.
In a statement made to Entertainment Weekly, attorney Christine Lepera said:
“The Court repeatedly stated Kesha was already free to record without Dr. Luke, and that she had not presented any facts supporting her claims. That’s because all the evidence—including Kesha’s own sworn testimony—show her allegations are false. Her attorneys can continue manufacturing even more false and outrageous claims, but the fact remains that her time would be better spent in a studio than wasting time having her lawyer and mother spin lies in the media.”
Kesha’s attorney Mark Geragos highlighted in his appeal that the Court's ruling is forcing his client to work "in a situation in which they don't want to work." The singer has accused Dr. Luke of emotionally, physically and sexually abusing her throughout her career.
