Taylor Swift‘s legal team sent Sweeney a cease-and-desist letter, accusing him of compromising Swift’s safety by indirectly informing stalkers of her whereabouts.
Sweeney’s social media accounts for tracking Taylor Swift‘s air travel were disabled by Facebook and Instagram.
Sweeney’s Response and Legal Defense
Sweeney‘s lawyer, James Slater, responded to Swift’s cease-and-desist letter, claiming that there were no legal claims against Sweeney.
Slater argued that Sweeney‘s account was protected speech and did not violate any of Swift’s legal rights.
