Now T.I. is Caught Up in the “Blurred Lines” Case

You thought it was over, did you? Hah!  Pamela Chelin reports in The Wrap how this whole thing just keeps on getting weirder.

Lawyers representing Robin Thicke, Pharrell Williams and several other parties in the “Blurred Lines” case ripped the Gaye family in a court document accusing them of “unfair tactics” in what they characterize as an attempt to subvert the verdict that awarded the Gaye family almost $7.4 million last week.

In the response filed today, Thicke’s attorneys asked the court to strike two motions filed this week by the Gaye family, which attempt to add rapper T.I. and the Interscope Parties (Star Trak Entertainment, UMG Distribution, Universal Music Recordings, Interscope Records) to Thicke and Williams’ liability for copyright infringement, as well as an injunction against the song “Blurred Lines.”

Oh, you’ll want to keep reading.
