In his 2011 memoir, Tyler wrote how he “almost took teenage tokens” after the girl’s “parents fell in love with me [and] signed a paper for me to get custody so I wouldn’t get arrested if I took her out of state. I took her on tour.”

Tyler demanded that the emotional distress claim be dismissed. He said the words in his memoir were protected by the First Amendment. He argued that Misley had consented to the actions she now complained about.

His lawyer added: “[Holcomb’s] In an effort to recast her very public, multi-year relationship with Tyler as a black-and-white case of child sexual abuse, critical facts are omitted and others distorted.”

In March, the judge granted Tyler’s request to dismiss the emotional distress claim.

Now Tyler and his lawyers have asked the court to award them legal fees for the work done to achieve the victory.

His lawyers said: “These public statements – whatever their perceived impact [Misley]– constitute a typical protected expression. Moreover, they were made in 1997 and 2011 – more than eleven years before she filed a lawsuit. [Misley] therefore recklessly caused Mr. Tyler to incur more than $142,000 in legal fees to contest her baseless claim, plus approximately $12,930 in additional costs for filing this motion and the anticipated response and argument to this motion.”
