A judge is completely rejecting Kesha‘s emergency order to get her out of her Sony contract with Dr. Luke, her alleged rapist.
The 29-year-old singer pressed to get a New York court date, but Sony pushed very hard to get the case thrown out and the judge has taken Sony’s side. According to TMZ, the judge didn’t buy Kesha‘s “slavery” argument, that she was being forced to work with Dr. Luke, because other producers would have been made available to her via Sony.
Referring to the sexual assault claims, the judge wrote, “Although [Luke's] alleged actions were directed to Kesha, who is female, [her claims] do no allege that [Luke] harbored animus toward women or was motivated by gender animus when he allegedly behaved violently toward Kesha…Every rape is not a gender-motivated hate crime.”
Kesha does have a case pending against Dr. Luke in Los Angeles as well.
