Carly Simon case against Starbucks dismissed, again

Posted by Melissa Allison

Carly Simon's lawsuit against Starbucks was rejected by a federal judge for the second time last Friday, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Simon sued Starbucks after the chain announced it would leave the music business shortly before the release of her 2008 album, "This Kind of Love," which fared poorly.

Simon lost the case earlier this year, but filed an amended complaint with details about conversations with Starbucks executives. The judge dismissed the case, saying Simon had waived her right to hold Starbucks liable for alleged shortcomings of its distributor, Hear Music, the Reporter said.
