Judges in their own words
“At present, the court is not saying that Braham can never, ever, ever get his case back in court. But, for now, we have got problems, and the court is not sure Braham can solve them. As currently drafted, the complaint has a blank space— one that requires Braham to do more than write his name. And, upon consideration of the court’s explanation...Braham may discover that mere pleading BandAids will not fix the bullet holes in his case. At least for the moment, defendants have shaken off this lawsuit.”
U.S. Magistrate Judge Gail J. Standish incorporating Taylor Swift song lyrics in a recommendation that a claim against the pop singer be dismissed (and that the plaintiff’s related request to proceed in forma pauperis be denied). The recommendation was accepted by District Judge Michael W. Fitzgerald. The case is Braham v. Sony/ATV Music Publishing, No. 15-CV-8422 (C.D. Cal).
