Lady Gaga‘s been dodging Dr. Luke, refusing to be deposed in the Kesha case, but now he wants the judge to force her to do it … TMZ has learned.  

Dr. Luke filed docs demanding Gaga firm up a date when she will sit for the depo. In the docs, Luke says she tried to offer up a written statement instead … but he says that’s not good enough. He wants his lawyers to grill her face-to-face for no more than 3 hours.

The hot topic Luke wants her to open about is a text message convo between Kesha and Gaga. According to the docs, obtained by TMZ, the texts include Kesha saying she’d been abused by Luke, and imploring Gaga to join a “smear campaign against [Dr. Luke].” Luke says that campaign included Gaga urging Sony Music to cut ties with him, and promoting “Free Kesha” on social media.

Luke’s lawyers subpoenaed Gaga to get a copy of the texts, but according to the docs … the copy they got was so heavily redacted it was incomprehensible.

Luke wants the judge to force Gaga to turn over a completely un-redacted version immediately.
