Taylor Swift just scored a big win as the judge threw out DJ David Mueller’s case against her.

New updates about Taylor’s controversial lawsuit revealed that U.S. District Judge William J. Martinez dismissed Mueller’s lawsuit against the singer. The court said that the DJ has no solid proof that Swift got him fired and ruined his career after she alleged that he groped her during a meet-and-greet event in 2013.

It can be recalled that Mueller, 55, filed a lawsuit against Swift, 27, for damages, adding that the “Shake It Off” singer falsely accused him of groping her behind. Taylor’s accusation allegedly ruined the image and career of the former KYGO radio DJ.

Mueller claimed that Swift and her team “pressured station management to oust him from his $150,000-per-year job.” The former DJ demanded up to $3 million in damages from the pop star.

However, the judge determined that Mueller has no solid evidence that his termination from his job has a direct connection to his encounter with Taylor. The judge also reiterated that Swift “did not act improperly” during and after the incident, adding that the singer only informed her mother and team and not the DJ’s employer.

Meanwhile, Swift’s attorney, Douglas Baldrige, pointed out the Mueller’s issue is with KYGO and not the singer. He also stated that despite doing him wrong, Mueller did not sue his employer and went after Taylor instead.

Despite being cleared from Mueller’s lawsuit, Swift’s mother, Andrea, and her radio liaison, Frank Bell, will still face Mueller’s case. The two were reportedly the first to know about the groping incident.
