Alice Glass says that the defamation lawsuit filed against her by her former bandmate in Crystal Castles, Ethan Kath, has been dismissed. She has laid out in a series of posts nearly a decade of alleged abuse, physically, mentally and emotionally, at the hands of Kath. He has vigorously denied these accusations and decided to sue her for defamation in return.
Pitchfork confirmed with the Los Angeles Superior Court that in fact the case had been dismissed.
Kath, real name Claudio Palmieri, filed the lawsuit in November in response to the allegation that he had been abusive sexually and physically to Glass for nearly a decade, starting when she was just 15. After she made those accusations, Crystal Castles was dropped from their tour and the group’s career has stalled. Since then, he has been accused of abuse by several other women and is under investigation by the Toronto police department.
