Playing 'Dance Moms' Abby Lee Miller's Assault Charges Dropped

Abby Lee Miller is in the clear.

Los Angeles Superior Court judge Ruth Ann Kwan ruled on Thursday that there was insufficient evidence to prove the claims made by Paige Hyland that Miller hurled a chair at her.

The suit filed in October 2014, when Hyland was 13, alleged that the Dance Moms star was "paid to be abusive and bullying to her students. It also claimed that Miller "insulted and abused Paige on an almost daily basis, including cruel name calling, insults about Paige's physical appearance and making offensive false and defamatory accusation [sic.] about Paige's family."

After going over the footage, the judge said there was no way Hyland could have feared being injured by the 48-year-old dance instructor.

"We are reviewing all options based upon the Court's ruling, including an appeal," Hyland's attorney Michael Shapiro said (via The Hollywood Reporter).

This isn't the first legal issue the Hyland family has had with Miller. In April, charges were dropped against Kelly Hyland, the mother of Paige and her sister Brooke, after she was arrested for slapping Miller in front of TV cameras.

In Feb. 2014, Kelly Hyland also sued Miller for defamation in regards to the altercation, claiming that the TV personality was portraying her as an unfit mother in interviews. She also alleged that Miller had caused emotional distress on her children with her "domineering and often bullying and insulting leadership style." A judge threw both these allegations out of the suit in November, but breaches of contract and negligence are still in there. 

After all this drama, it's no wonder that Miller hinted that she might be leaving Dance Moms. See what the dance instructor told ET:
