Jury Sides With Taylor Swift In Sexual Assault Trial

A jury has sided with Taylor Swift in her groping lawsuit, ruling that former radio host David Mueller assaulted her during a 2013 pre-concert photo-op and ordering him to pay a symbolic $1 in damages. The AP reports that the judge dismissed Mueller’s suit against Swift, in which he sought $3 million for ruining his career, prior to the closing arguments, and the six-woman, two-man jury also found that Swift’s mother and radio handler were within their rights to contact his superiors at KYGO-FM.

“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,” Swift said in a statement following the verdict, thanking the judge, the jury, and her legal team. “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.”
