Most Outrageous Lawsuit of the Month, November 2015 – Taylor Swift Sued for $42 Million

This month, Phoebe Stonbely discusses a lawsuit that centers around one of America’s most loved pop stars, Taylor Swift.

Musician, Jesse Braham, filed a $42 million copyright suit in California district court claiming the lyrics to Swift’s hit song “Shake it Off” were stolen from a song he wrote titled “haters gonna hate,” claiming the songs had a 92% similarity.

The judge in this case did not agree, quickly dismissing the lawsuit and even quoting some TaySwift in her dismissal.
