Taylor Swift has appealed against a decision to allow a trial over claims she stole lyrics used in her song Shake It Off. The US singer's lawyers called the decision "unprecedented" and asked that the ruling by a California judge is looked at again. Songwriters Sean Hall and Nate Butler allege Swift's lyrics were stolen from their 2014 song Playas Gon' Play, performed by girl group 3LW.
