United States District Court Judge Gail Standish ruled on a copyright case earlier in the week and determined that musician Jessie Braham, who claimed Swift stole his lyrics, didn’t have enough evidence to continue with the suit.
But Standish did not stop at merely throwing out the case; she used Swift’s lyrics in the judgment of the opinion and went ahead, according to documents obtained by ABC News.
“At present, the Court is not saying that Braham can never, ever, ever get his case back in court. But, for now, judge have got issues, and also the Court isn’t sure Braham can solve them,” the judge wrote on Tuesday, citing Swift’s tunes “Bad Blood” and “we’re Never Ever Getting Back Together.”
Swift continued, “As presently drafted, the Grievance has a blank space–one that requires Braham to do more than write his name. Braham may find that mere plead Band Aids is not going to repair the bullet holes in his case. At least for the moment, Defendants have shaken off this suit.”
In the opinion, Braham was given the choice to “file his litigation again with a fresh charge that remedies the deficiencies mentioned above,” or essentially provide satisfactory evidence in the eyes of the court.
