Taylor Swift is seeking just $1 in her countersuit against the DJ who allegedly groped her backstage at one of her concerts in 2013, media reports said.
Swift had alleged that David Mueller touched her inappropriately before a concert at the Pepsi Center in the state capital in 2013.
After the allegations came to light, Mueller reportedly lost his job and then sued Swift for $3 million, alleging her complaint led to his unfair dismissal.
He told the court he had sent out two dozen resumes and audio samples but received no job offers since being terminated.
Swift countersued, claiming sexual assault.
A judge on Friday threw out Mueller’s case against Swift saying that the pop star could not be held liable because Mueller failed to prove that she personally set out to have him fired.
In a deposition last year, Swift said, "He reached up under my skirt and grabbed my ass right when I was having to pose for the photo, and it felt intentional that that would be the time he would choose to do it."
