He is seeking up to $3 million, saying the allegation cost him his reputation and his job.

U.S. District Judge William Martinez dismissed Muller's claim against Swift on Friday, claiming that he could not prove the pop star ruined his career over allegations that he groped her during a concert in 2013, reports E! Taylor Swift is claiming that Mueller grabbed her just beneath her skirt and one of her security guards witnessed it.

His claim was dismissed on Friday in a Denver court.

Testimony has resumed in a civil trial over whether Taylor Swift was groped by a former radio DJ.

Swift spent an hour on the witness stand Thursday defiantly recounting what she called a "despicable and horrifying and shocking" encounter before a concert. "A very long grab".

Swift's testy exchange with Mueller's attorney occasionally elicited chuckles " even from the six-woman, two-man jury. "I was visibly uncomfortable", Swift said, according to an Us Weekly reporter who was in the courtroom on Thursday. She also said that she was doing this as an example for young victims of sexual assault around the world.

Andrea said that she felt like throwing up when she heard about the assault.

During the trial Swift told jurors that Mueller deliberately groped her bottom during a fan meet-and-greet session. All three are smiling. Melcher said Mueller was devastated by the accusation. Mueller alleged that he'd lost his job because Swift had wrongfully accused him of sexual assault. They drifted apart late in 2013, but Melcher says they remained friends.
