LOS ANGELES -- "Band aids don't fix bullet holes." Yes, that's a Taylor Swift lyric. And no, you can't say she didn’t warn you.

Remember the guy who accused Taylor Swift of stealing his lyrics in her song “Shake It Off?” Artist Jesse Braham, who also goes by the stage name of Jesse Graham, filed a copyright infringement lawsuit asking for $42 million in damages.

Talk about starting some bad blood.

He says his song, "Haters gonna Hate"  inspired Swift's song.

On Thursday, a California judge not only dismissed the case, she quoted the pop princess to boot.

Judge Gail Standish wrote, "At present, the court is not saying that Braham can never, ever, ever get his case back in court. But for now, we have got problems, and the court is not sure Braham can solve them."

The judge goes on to say, "at least for the moment, defendants have shaken off this lawsuit."

Talk about swift justice.

What's more, the judge probably gained respect from Swifties everywhere!

Looks like Braham messed with the wrong squad, after all, the only place his claims hold water is in his wildest dreams.
