Kesha has dismissed a California lawsuit alleging hit-making producer Dr. Luke sexually abused her, but a similar case will remain in play in New York.

Lawyers for the Tik Tok singer filed to dismiss the suit in Los Angeles. Her lawyer Daniel Petrocelli says the dismissal was filed so she can focus her legal efforts in New York, where she has also sued the producer alleging he raped her and frequently ridiculed her.

Dr. Luke has denied her allegations and accused Kesha of making them up to try to obtain a better recording deal.

He has also demanded the release of her private medical records in a further attempt to disprove the pop singer's rape allegations.

Petrocelli says Kesha has delivered 28 new songs to Dr. Luke's record label and hopes new singles and albums will be released soon.

Kesha first sued Dr. Luke in October 2014, accusing him of drugging and raping her.
