When Gail J Standish, the federal judge who oversaw a $42 million lawsuit accusing Taylor Swift of stealing lyrics, decided she would throw the case out she clearly wanted to shake it off in a way the plaintiff - or the Internet - would not soon forget, according to CNN.
And that Standish did, tossing singer Jessie Braham's suit in the "Nope, not today" pile by quoting enough Tay-Tay lyrics to make Swifties squeal in joy. Braham's suit accused Swift of lifting most of the lyrics from her song "Shake It Off."
"At present, the Court is not saying that Braham can never, ever, ever get his case back in court," the judge's statement read. Working in lyrics from "Bad Blood," "Blank Space" as well as "Shake It Off," her statement included more gems such as, "But for now, we have got problems, and the court is not sure Braham can solve them....At least for the moment, defendants have shaken off this lawsuit."
Did Standish drop the mic or what?
