Judge Throws Out Denver DJ’s Lawsuit Against Taylor Swift

Late Friday afternoon, U.S. District Judge William Martinez threw out a radio DJ’s $3 million lawsuit against Taylor Swift, giving the singer a win in a preliminary round in the case.

David Mueller, a former DJ at KYGO-FM, charged that Swift had him ousted from his job after Swift alleged that he groped her at a meet and greet at a concert in 2013. Swift countersued for $1, alleging assault and battery.

Just before the case was set to go to the jury, Martinez ruled that Mueller’s team had not successfully shown that Swift got Mueller fired after she complained to his bosses about his alleged behavior at the meet and greet. Swift’s team has maintained that while Swift told Mueller’s boss about the incident, she did not suggest he be let go.

 

Mueller has denied that he touched Swift’s buttocks during the photo op, as the singer alleges. He testified he touched her ribs. The judge had already dismissed Mueller’s claim against Swift for defamation of character, according to NBC News.

The Associated Press notes that while Mueller can no longer pursue a claim against Swift, it’s possible Mueller will move forward with his case against Swift’s mother, Andrea Swift, and radio station liaison Frank Bell, who were also named in Mueller’s original suit.

The eight jurors will return on Monday, Aug. 14,  to hear closing arguments for any remaining claims, including, possibly, Swift’s counterclaim.

On Thursday, (10), Swift testified for more than hour, including declaring that Mueller’s hand “stayed attached to my bare ass-cheek until I lurched away from him.”
