https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HnA1QmZvSNs Adam Neely gives a compelling argument on why this is not the case, and after hearing the recording sessions I'm having second doubts about this lawsuit.

So, Dua Lipa suffers with сryptomnesia.

It should be a rule in music that if you wrote a song in 15 seconds, then you just copied a melody of a song you heard.

Sure thing, but it's most likely that she copied it from Outkast rather than this obscure Reggae band.

Guys, do you read yourselves being so shady?

Things like this happen. And it's not intentional.

Not being intentional doesn't make it necessarily right. I believe that if Dua knew that she was copying another band she would credit them, just like INXS in Break My Heart. But not realizing she was copying is worth discussing either way, specially when we've got people defending both arguments.

When you write, it's what comes into your head and you don't overthink.
At this point, everything is already done.

Hope they settle out of court and add the songwriters to the credits and pay them, if a jury decides that.

I agree that beginners work like that. Great songwriters don't always use that strategy though. Different strategies were confirmed by inter alia Savan, Mutt Lange, Ariana Grande and others.
Hi, I'm Luke and I'm sitting on my throne! Oh, and have you noticed that Denniz PoP songs are extremely hooky?
