Lady Gaga accused of copying 'Judas,' hit with lawsuit

LOS ANGELES - Lady Gaga on Friday was slapped with a lawsuit claiming her hit song "Judas" on the new album "Born This Way" was copied from a similar tune by a Chicago-based singer and songwriter.
Rebecca Francescatti, who filed the suit in US District Court in Illinois on Wednesday, alleges "Judas" infringes upon the copyright of her song "Juda," which she recorded in 1999.
The Chicago musician claims that "substantial original portions" of "Judas" were lifted from the song that she re-recorded in 2005 for her album, "It's All About You."
A spokeswoman for Lady Gaga was not immediately available for comment, and a spokesman for Interscope declined to comment.
