This is interesting: it turns out that the New York State Supreme Court judge who threw out Kesha's appeal in her lawsuit against producer Dr. Luke and Sony had a pretty big conflict of interest, in that she's married to one of Sony's lawyers. Hmm. Apparently, Judge Shirley Kornreich's husband, Ed Kornreich, is a partner at a firm called Proskauer Rose, which has Sony/RCA as a client.

In April, Judge Kornreich dismissed the appeal Kesha had filed against Sony, in which Kesha requested to be released from her contract, alleging that her producer Dr. Luke (real name Lukasz Gottwald) had sexually assaulted her. Judge Kornreich said:

Although [Luke's] alleged actions were directed to Kesha, who is female, [her claims] do not 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 dropped the case against Sony in Los Angeles, but she's continuing her appeal in New York. On August 1, the performer posted on Facebook about the lawsuit, writing: "The lawsuit is so heavy on my once free spirit, and I can only pray to one day feel that happiness again."

My fight continues. I need to get my music out. I have so much to say. This lawsuit is so heavy on my once free spirit,...
