UPDATE: R. Kelly Goes to Court, Judge Not Buying It, Judgment Withdrawn after R. Kelly’s Lawyers Say He Can’t Read

CHICAGO (AP) — A judge who ordered a default judgment against R. Kelly after the singer failed to respond to a lawsuit filed by one of his alleged victims now says the suit can proceed.

The Chicago Sun-Times reports that Cook County Judge Moira Johnson on Wednesday reinstated the lawsuit after Kelly’s attorneys said the singer never responded to it because he’s illiterate and couldn’t read the documents when he was served with them.

The lawsuit was filed by a woman identified as “H.W.,” who is one of the four women that Kelly is charged in a criminal case with sexually abusing. She contends she began a sexual relationship with Kelly in 1998, when she was 16.
