Filed under: Legal MattersNetflix

no title

Good news for Brendan Dassey during this legal roller coaster.

On Monday, a federal judge ruled that the Making A Murderer subject will be released from prison while prosecutors appeal his overturned conviction.

For those of you who may not know, in 2007, the Wisconsin resident was found guilty of sexually assaulting and murdering Teresa Halbach.

A key part of the now-27-year-old's conviction was his confession, in which he detailed how he and his uncle, Steven Avery, allegedly assaulted and murdered the photographer.

However, the Netflix docuseries seemed to show Brendan was coerced into providing that confession, after his mental ability was called into question and his court-appointed lawyer didn't hesitate to take a deal.

So, in August, Judge William E. Duffin overturned the young man's murder conviction. But,

Filed under: Icky Icky PooLegal MattersBusted!SexControversy

Get the deets on his failed appeal!

Looks like Jared Fogle won't be able to eat fresh for a full fifteen years.

On Thursday, it was revealed that the U.S. Court of Appeals denied the scandalized Subway spokesman's request for a shorter sentence for his sex crimes.

Last year, the fast food face was sentenced to 188 months — which is over 15 and a half years — in jail for multiple counts of child porn charges as well as soliciting sex with minors.

Madonna Scores HUGE Legal Victory Over TINY Vogue Copyright Claim!

no title

This could be huge for musicians everywhere!

Madonna just won a long-standing copyright infringement case brought against her back in 2012 regarding Vogue, her famous 1990 song — and it could mean good things for other artists around the industry!

A company called VMG Salsoul, LLC brought the initial lawsuit against Madge four years ago over the copyright of one of their songs called Love Break that was a hit in the early 1980s.

The company alleged that Shep Pettibone — one of Vogue's producers — used an unlicensed 'horn hit' from Love Break on the Madonna track, and that the horn sound should give them rights to Madonna's huge hit.

Here's the kicker: the 'horn hit' used in Madge's mega-song was exactly

Kesha Is Appealing Her Injunction Ruling Against Dr. Luke

Filed under: Music MinuteLegal MattersKeshaControversy

See the argument HERE!

Kesha isn't done fighting.

On Monday, the pop powerhouse filed legal papers to take her battle with Dr. Luke — AKA Lukasz Gottwald — to an appeals court.

Last month, the blonde was denied her injunction bid to get out of her recording contract with the Sony producer, who she claims sexually assaulted and abused her.

The 29-year-old's lawyer, Mark Geragos, wrote in the docs that keeping his client in her contract is similar to slavery:

"First, the Court erred in basing its decision on its finding that Kesha could record without interference from Gottwald. Although it recognized that 'slavery was done away with a long time ago' and that '[y]ou can't force someone to work . . . in a situation in which they don't want to work,' the Court's ruling requiring Kesha to work for Gottwald's companies, purportedly without his involvement, does just that."

The attorney also explained that, if let out of her contract with her alleged abuser, Kesha could compensate Sony Music Entertainment for breaking her deal.

He argued that the judge didn't consider that alternative option would allow the singer to be free while also giving the music giant the ability to still get their money back, saying:

Washington Redskins Finally (Kind Of) Admit Their Name Is Offensive — But They Have A DISGUSTING New Excuse To Keep Their Mascot

no title

This is unbelievable!

The Washington Redskins are trying to preserve the trademark for their highly offensive nickname, and the NFL team is now going to great lengths to defend their position.

On Friday, the team — along with controversial owner Dan Snyder — filed an opening brief in an appeals court in the hopes that they could keep their nickname after a court just ruled the name was highly offensive.

But this opening brief has to be seen to be believed!

It seems the 'Skins are no longer arguing that their name is not offensive, which had been their argument up to this point.

NOW they are conceding it is offensive to some — but they're arguing that since trademarks have been granted to dozens of other highly offensive (and NSFW) names, the Redskins ought to be allowed to keep theirs, too:
