The jury has unanimously sided with Taylor Swift in her groping case against DJ David Mueller. David Mueller was accused of groping Taylor Swift at a meet and greet in 2013.
Swift sued Muller for $1 after the incident. Swift issued the following statement after the verdict came in: “I want to thank Judge William J. Martinez and the jury for their careful consideration … [my attorneys] and anyone who feels silenced by a sexual assault, and especially anyone who offered their support through this four-year ordeal… 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.”
David Mueller has maintained his innocence. His counter-claim against Swift was dismissed.
