A defamation lawsuit filed against Alice Glass has been thrown out by Canadian authorities.
The singer alleged years of physical, sexual, and mental abuse at the hands of Ethan Kath, her former band mate in Crystal Castles.
Kath in return issued a defamation writ, delivered to Alice Glass live onstage during one of her shows.
Now Canadian authorities have moved to throw out the lawsuit, a move she labels "a victory for survivors of abuse and sexual misconduct".
Alice Glass confirmed the news on social media:
