Lady Gaga has filed a lawsuit to recoup legal costs from Rebecca Francescatti who accused the singer of copying her music.
Chicago-based musician Rebecca Francescatti sued Lady Gaga in 2011 claiming her single Judas was lifted from a piece she had composed in 1999, named Juda.

In June, US District Judge Marvin E. Aspen dismissed the case and ruled the songs were not the same.
Lady Gaga, 28, has now filed documents requesting that Rebecca Francescatti reimburse the legal costs she incurred fighting the plagiarism claim.
According to TMZ, in the documents, the total legal bill comes to almost $1.4 million.

The Passion play was being performed in Itarare, 345 km (214 miles) west of Sao Paulo.
Tiago Klimeck was re-enacting the scene in which Judas commits suicide in repentance for his betrayal of Jesus Christ.
Police are investigating the apparatus that was meant to support Tiago Klimeck. It appears the knot may have been wrongly tied.
When the actors realized something was wrong, Tiago Klimeck was taken down and found to be unconscious.
The Santa Casa de Itapeva hospital has confirmed the death and a post-mortem examination took place yesterday.
