Bob Dylan Wins $8,000 from Lawyers of Woman Whose Sex Abuse Case Against Him Was Dismissed


The crazy lawsuit against Bob Dylan for sexual harassment in the 1960s has had a plot twist ending.

I told you when this case was filed that it was bogus, and I produced evidence that Dylan was not even in New York City when the event supposedly took place at the Chelsea Hotel.

It was all made up by a disturbed woman who convinced two lawyers to take the case.

Now a judge has ordered those lawyers to pay Dylan $5,000 and $3,000 each as a punishment for not complying with any orders of discovery. They couldn’t produce any backup to the insane claims. The judge wasn’t happy. She was kind, though. Dylan wanted $50,000.

US District Court Judge Katherine Polk Failla’s order can be read here.
