Former Price is Right host Bob Barker is off the hook! The game-show host was dropped from a wrongful termination suit on Wednesday after a judge dismissed several allegations made against him.

The claims, made by a former Price is Right employee, were thrown out after a judge determined that Barker was not the woman's employer when the allegations occurred.

Deborah Curling, a former production assistant, sued Barker, CBS and production company FemantleMedia North America last October claiming she faced retaliation after testifying against Barker in another wrongful termination suit.

Curling's suit claimed she was in a ''pleasant working environment'' during most of the 24 years at The Price is Right. She claimed she was demoted after testifying against Barker in a wrongful termination suit filed by one of the show's former production assistants.

She had been seeking unspecified damages.

Barker retired last year after hosting The Price is Right for 35 years.
