File closed. A judge has dismissed a plagiarism lawsuit against Lady Gaga.
Musician Rebecca Francescatti claimed that Gaga stole her song "Judas."
The judge's ruling? "We conclude, as a matter of law, that the two songs are not substantially similar. The songs do not share enough unique features to give rise to a breach of the duty not to copy another's work."
Despite similar titles, the judge said that the findings "were not sufficient to give rise to a finding that the Gaga Song has captured the total concept and feel of the Francescatti Song."
Ok, so end of story. Gaga didn't lift "Judas," which lives on Born This Way. The judge does not think the songs sound the same.
