The judge in Taylor Swift’s case has thrown out DJ Mueller’s suit which claimed the star’s allegations of groping got him fired.
The DJ claimed that the pop star deliberately got him fired from his job at radio station KYGO with false allegations of sexual assault.
Mueller denies claims he groped her at a 2013 concert, and filed a suit for $3m (£2.3m) saying he lost his job because of the allegations.
However, the judge has now dismissed the 55-year-old’s claims.
Following the alleged incident, Taylor contacted the radio station KYGO to complain, and he was fired two days later.
But Judge William Martinez said that Mueller could not prove Taylor Swift set out to get him fired, and ruled the pop star not liable.
A jury will now decide if Andrea Swift and her radio liaison Frank Bell should be held accountable for his sacking.
Taylor has counter sued Mueller’s claims, filing a lawsuit for $1, alleging he lifted her skirt and groped her backside during a meet and greet at the gig four years ago.
On Friday afternoon, the 27-year-old’s bodyguard gave evidence backing her claims of sexual assault, telling the court he saw the DJ reach under her skirt.
Greg Dent told the court he ‘did not see his hand touch her physically’ but ‘saw his hand under her skirt.’
He added: ‘She reacted, pushed her skirt down and moved over closer to [Mr Mueller’s girlfriend]. So in my opinion, I knew he touched her.’
