Kesha's sexual assault lawsuit against Sony has been thrown out by a judge, again denying her the option to end her recording contract with the music label and Dr Luke.
The ruling comes after Kesha's legal team argued that it was "slavery" for her to be forced to work with companies which have ties. and are ultimately controlled by, her alleged rapist.
The producer, whose real name is Lukasz Sebastian Gottwald, has been accused by Kesha of raping her, as well as being sued for battery, harassment and emotional distress.
However Judge Shirley Korneich has ruled that Sony's compromise of allowing Kesha to continue to record without Dr Luke's involvement is an acceptable solution, despite the aforementioned dealings he'd still have.
"There are no facts to support Gottwald’s animus toward women. Gottwald is alleged to have made offensive remarks about Kesha’s weight, appearance, and talent, not about women in general," Kornreich wrote in her statement. "Every rape is not a gender-motivated hate crime."
She continued: "[Kesha's] claims of insults about her value as an artist, her looks and her weight are insufficient to constitute extreme, outrageous conduct intolerable in a civilized society."
This ruling comes after Kesha lost a similar appeal back in February, as Dr Luke continues to deny all allegations made against him.
