Let’s start at the beginning shall we?
In June 2013, former radio host David Mueller met pop star Taylor Swift at a meet and greet event.
It has then been alleged that the former radio host groped the singer in the photo, according to Swift, Mueller lifted her skirt and grabbed her ass whilst the photo was being taken.
So over the last week Swift has been attending a court hearing where she has filed a counter suit against the former radio host for assault and battery.
Mueller filed a lawsuit against Swift for $150,000 claiming her allegations caused him to lose his credibility and career as a radio host. However the judge dismissed this allegation.
After four hours of deliberation the jury that consisted of six women and two men ruled in favor of Taylor Swift, which means David Mueller will be required to pay $1 in damages to Swift.
The jury also found the singer’s mother, Andrea Swift, not liable for tortious interference.
Swift thanked the judge and her legal team in a statement for “fighting for me and anyone who feels silenced by a sexual assault.”
“I acknowledge the privilege that I benefit from in life, in society and in my ability to shoulder the enormous cost of defending myself in a trial like this, my hope is to help those whose voices should also be heard. Therefore, I will be making donations in the near future to multiple organizations that help sexual assault victims defend themselves.” CNN obtained, Swift’s statement.
Swift’s lawsuit against Mueller argued that the trial would “serve as an example to other women who may resist publicly reliving similar outrageous and humiliating acts.”
Swift’s attorney, Doug Baldridge told the press that “it takes people like Taylor, wonderful people like Taylor, who we all know to stand up and draw these lines. As I said in the closing argument, that dollar, that single dollar, is of immeasurable value in this ever going fight to figure out where the lines are, what’s right and what’s wrong.”
CNN spoke to Mueller on the phone who claims he has his heart set on proving his innocence.
