DENVER (AP) - Taylor Swift teared up and hugged her attorneys after a judge determined a former radio host didn't prove she set out to have him fired for allegedly groping her at a photo op before a concert. But the singer's ordeal isn't over quite yet.

While the federal judge threw out David Mueller's case against Swift on Friday, identical allegations against her mother and her radio liaison are expected to go to jurors Monday.

Mueller sued the three after Swift's team reported the 2013 encounter in Denver to his bosses. He's seeking up to $3 million, saying the allegation cost him his job.

Swift countersued, saying she wanted a symbolic $1 and the chance to stand up for other women. The jury will still consider her assault claim.

Swift called the encounter with Mueller despicable and horrifying.
