Newswire: Dr. Luke wants to subpoena Kesha’s fans now, too
Music producer—and increasingly experienced litigant—Lukasz “Dr. Luke” Gottwald has now added “Kesha’s fans” to “Kesha’s mom” and “Kesha” on his list of people he’s recently involved in legal action. Pitchfork reports that Gottwald has targeted #FreeKesha organizer Michael Eisele for a subpoena that would force him to testify about ”allegedly ‘closely coordinating’ with Kesha’s camp to spread ‘defamatory statements and tarnish [Dr. Luke]’s reputation.’”
Eisele co-authored the #FreeKesha petition, which saw more than 200,000 people voice their desire to see the musician freed from her Sony Music contract, and its stipulations forcing her to work with a producer she’s accused of sexually assaulting her. Eisele also organized protests outside Sony Music’s offices.
