Taylor Swift won $1 and her dignity back Monday when a Denver jury ruled that former radio host David Mueller groped the singer as she alleged.
Mueller lost a companion case, too.
“Mueller had sued Swift, the singer’s mom Andrea Swift, and radio promotions director Frank Bell in 2015, accusing them of interfering with his $150,000/year contract as a local morning radio DJ in Denver by pressuring his employer, KYGO radio, to fire him,” CNN noted.
“Mueller was seeking more than $257,500 in damages, according to his attorney’s closing arguments.”
But after nearly four hours of deliberation, a jury of six women and two men ruled in favor of the pop star. Mueller will be required to pay $1 in damages to Swift.

Just spoke to a young fan who was in court. Says Taylor Swift looked every juror in the eye and mouthed “thank you” #TaylorSwiftTrial

The lawsuit was largely fought on the credibility of Swift and the former radio host, David Mueller. https://t.co/YVBa2uyIA7
