A jury in New York has ruled that British singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran is not liable for copyright infringement in a case that has been closely watched by the global entertainment industry.
After the verdict had been delivered Sheeran hugged his lawyer. His wife, Cherry Seaborn, and co-writer, Amy Wadge, were reportedly in tears.
The singer is also facing claims over Thinking Out Loud in the same court from a company owned by investment banker David Pullman that holds copyright interests in the Gaye song.
Sheeran won a trial in London last year in a separate copyright case over his hit Shape of You.
