LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess) – Jurors will hear closing arguments Thursday (Aug. 1) before deciding how much Katy Perry, her collaborators and her record label owe the writers of a Christian rap song over her hit “Dark Horse,” according to The Associated Press.

The same jurors found on Monday that Perry and her five co-writers copied rapper Marcus Gray’s 2009 song “Joyful Noise” in creating 2013′s “Dark Horse.”

Attorneys for Gray (AKA Flame), have emphasized the tens of millions brought in by the Perry song, while the popstar’s attorneys have emphasized the tens of millions in expenses used to make and market the mega-hit, reports AP.

The trial has since been in a damages phase where attorneys argue how much Gray should get.
