The guy suing Taylor Swift over her mobile phone app is refusing to take no for an answer and continuing with his attempts to examine her cell phone and laptop and the singer has had enough of it.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Swift was recently victorious when a judge shut down Patrick Lloyd Yves Bénot’s request for access to her personal cell phone, personal laptop, and any other electronic devices.
As The Blast previously reported, the singer was sued by Bénot, owner (and sole employee) of a company named SwiftLife, which does computer consulting services in New York. He claims her “SwiftLife” app infringes on his business.
After being shut down in his attempt, Bénot filed another motion in an attempt to get at her electronics. The singer says the discovery demands are meant to harass her and nothing else.
She points out his timing “is particularly ill-timed because she is not available now due to her presence on a World tour that currently is traveling to Australia, New Zealand and Japan and will not return until the end of November.”
Swift is asking the judge not force her to turn over any documents in the case until a decision is made on her motion to dismiss the entire case.
The singer argued, “Plaintiff, a one-man computer repair company in Wantaugh L.I., has brought the wrong claims in the wrong venue, many of them against the wrong Defendants.”
Taylor Swift argues that nobody is confusing the computer shop and her phone app, saying they both work in different fields and market to entirely different consumers. She says the stuff she puts on her app in no way relates to computer services.
The case is ongoing.
