It's good news for Taylor Swift this week as she has finally settled one of her major lawsuits. 

In May, fashion retailer Lucky 13 claimed that Ms Swift copied its trademark look onto a collection of cotton t-shirts sold by the singer.

But now, Tay Tay has avoided any legal depositions which means the scheduled trial date in January 2016 has been cancelled.

Lucky 13 argued that Taylor's "permanent or temporary tattoos and her marketing herself as liking fast cars and dangerous men who drive them inappropriately, as demonstrated by her I Knew You Were Trouble music video", "undeniably and squarely fits within the exact consumer demographic to whom Lucky 13 markets and sells its Lucky 13 goods," reports The Fashion Law

Sounds a bit silly, right? 

In August, Taylor claimed that Lucky 13 was harassing her, which seems to have resulted in this week's agreement. 

But it's not the end of Ms Swifts legal battles as she was accused of infringement last week for her song Shake It Off, as well as a sexual harassment claim made by Taylor last month. 



Taylor Swift and Lucky 13 potentially have a nasty court battle on their hands.

The founder of the fashion retailer claims that Ms Swift, 25, copied its trademark look onto a collection of cotton t-shirts sold by the singer.

Tay-Tay's lawyer tried to fight the hearing, saying that there is no way the singer could attend in person as it would impact on her massive 1989 world tour. They also claimed that Lucky 13 has been "harassing" her in recent months. 

But the judge seems not to be on Taylor's side on this occassion: he ruled that the musician has no choice but to attend the hearing. She now has up to a week to confirm a convenient time. 

The Californian judge explained: "Swift's schedule is not a basis for a protective order prohibiting her deposition testimony altogether. There is no evidence in the record to show that the plaintiffs have been inconsiderate of Swift's schedule.

"To the contrary, the record shows just the opposite. Nor does the evidence suggest that plaintiffs have sandbagged Swift's deposition to coincide with her world tour."

Well, we hope this all gets sorted soon!
