In a win for Taylor Swift’s court case, a judge has thrown out the lawsuit made by the man accused of groping the Bad Blood singer in 2013.

David Mueller originally sued Swift for $3m (£2.3m), saying her claims that he touched her at a concert were made to lose him his job. However, a judge in the case ruled that Taylor was not liable as Mueller hasn’t been able to prove she planned to get him fired.

Swift countersued Mueller for allegedly groping her when she agreed to pose for a photo with him during a stop on her tour. The radio host had been invited to meet her before the show when the alleged groping took place. He was fired from his $150,000-a-year job when she complained to the radio station he worked for.

She testified in court last week, saying: “He had a handful of my ass. I know it was him. I thought what he did was despicable.

“I am not going to allow your my client to make me feel like it is anyway my fault because it isn’t.”

Closing arguments in the case are expected to be made on Monday before the judge makes a verdict.

The singer is seeking $1m in damages, which she has promised to donate to charity if she wins the case.
