Cynthia Arato Quoted in The New York Times Article “A Songwriting Dispute Brews Over ‘Truth Hurts,’ Lizzo’s Biggest Hit”

Shapiro Arato Bach partner Cynthia Arato was quoted in The New York Times article, which reported on two songwriting brothers who are seeking credit for Lizzo’s hit song “Truth Hurts.”   ”The Raisens are not writers of ‘Truth Hurts,’” Arato said in a statement on behalf of firm client Lizzo. “They did not collaborate with Lizzo or anyone else to create this song, and they did not help write any of the material that they now seek to profit from, which is why they expressly renounced any claim to the work, in writing, months ago.”
