U.S. District Judge William Martinez has thrown out DJ David Mueller’s case against Taylor Swift, reports the Associated Press.
The case revolves around a 2013 meet-and-greet in Denver. Taylor alleged that Mueller grabbed her bare buttocks under her skirt during a photo op, which he denied. Days after the alleged incident, Mueller was fired from his on-air gig at KYGO radio station.
He went on to sue Taylor for defamation and $3 million in damages; Swift countersued for $1.
The judge argued that there was no proof Taylor’s groping accusations cost him his job or that she set out to have him fired, so she could not be held liable.
The case will now focus on Taylor's mom Andrea Swift and radio promotions director Frank Bell and their alleged involvement in Mueller's firing, as Taylor continues to countersue.
