Kesha Drops Sexual Assault Lawsuit in California, Will Continue in NY

2016 United States Humane Society "To the Rescue!" Benefit in Los Angeles - Arrivals

Kesha has decided to drop her sexual assault case against her former producer Dr. Luke in California and only concentrate on the case in New York. Kesha’s lawyer Daniel Petrocelli released a statement, “Kesha is focused on getting back to work and has delivered 28 new songs to the record label. We have conveyed to Sony and the label Kesha’s strong desire to release her next album and single as soon as possible.”

But Kesha still plans to forge ahead with her court case. “My fight continues,” she wrote on Facebook. “I need to get my music out. I have so much to say. This lawsuit is so heavy on my once free spirit, and I can only pray to one day feel that happiness again. I am continuing to fight for my rights in New York. Thank you for all your support. The support of my fans has been so beautiful and I’m so grateful for it. I’m Not sure where I would be without you all.”

Dr. Luke’s attorney, Christine Lepera, released a statement following Kesha’s dismissal, “If Kesha is voluntarily dismissing her claims in the California case, it is because she has no chance of winning them. Kesha never should have brought her false and meritless claims against Dr. Luke in any court. Dr. Luke’s defamation and other claims against Kesha are still proceeding.”
