Taylor Swift Wins $1 in Lawsuit After DJ Groped Her

A jury ruled in Taylor Swift’s favor on Monday after the “Bad Blood” singer testified in court against a Denver radio DJ who grabbed her buttocks underneath her skirt during a 2013 meet and greet. Her takeaway? One dollar and a win for women, pretty much.

Swift was countersuing David Mueller whom claimed the then-23-year-old star’s accusations were responsible for his bosses firing him from the radio station where he made $150,000 a year. In 2015, Mueller filed an initial lawsuit for more than $257,000 in damages against Swift, her mother Andrea, and her radio representative, Frank Bell.

In her countersuit for sexual harassment and battery, Taylor Swift asked for only $1, which she was awarded when the jury found that she was, indeed, groped by Mueller and that she, nor her mother or rep, were responsible for his job loss. She could have ruined the man’s life if she’d asked for a reasonable amount, but he already did that himself.

“I want to thank Judge William J. Martinez and the jury for their careful consideration, my attorneys… for fighting for me and anyone who feels silenced by a sexual assault, and especially anyone who offered their support through this four-year ordeal and two-year-long trial process,” Swift said in a statement. “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.”

While on the stand, Mueller’s attorney made multiple attempts at devaluing Swift’s story, but if there’s anyone who knows how to put a man in his place, it’s Taylor Swift. Mueller’s attorney, Gabe McFarland (or just “Gabe” when being spoken to by Swift), wondered why no one had seen his client’s hand up her skirt.

“The only person who would have a direct eye line is someone laying underneath my skirt,” Taylor shot back, “and we didn’t have anyone positioned there.”

When the attorney attempted to victim blame her, Swift put her foot down and shut the door on any guilt McFarland thought he would get out of her.

“I’m not going to allow you or your client make me feel in any way that this is my fault,” she said. “Here we are years later, and I’m being blamed for the unfortunate events of his life that are the product of his decisions — not mine.”

You go, Taylor!

Taylor Swift has kept out of the media’s hemisphere this year while working on her new album. POPULOVE broke news in May that the singer’s upcoming music video was in production with photos from the set design space. Read all about it on Buzzfeed!
