Taylor Swift wins groping case against radio DJ

A 6-day groping trial has ended in favour of pop star, Taylor Swift.

After long hours of deliberation, the jury in the case ruled that former radio host and DJ, David Mueller who sued the singer for causing him to lose his job after she accused him of grabbing her butt, is guilty of assault and battery.

During the trial, Swift testified that “he stayed attached to my bare ass-cheek as I lurched away from him” while Mueller gave a conflicting account of the event that happened at a meet and greet in July 2013.

Swift was awarded $1 in damages.

In a statement after the trial, she said, "I want to thank Judge William J. Martinez and the jury for their careful consideration, my attorneys Doug Baldridge, Danielle Foley, Jay Schaudies and Katie Wright for fighting for me and anyone who feels silenced by a sexual assault, and especially anyone who offered their support throughout 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."
