Taylor Swift won $1 and the groping lawsuit against a radio host



A jury sided with Taylor Swift Monday, in her countersuit against a former radio host the pop star accused of groping her during a 2013 meet-and-greet.

Fired Denver DJ David Mueller was ordered to pay the pop star a symbolic $1 in damages. The jury, comprised of six women and two men, determined that Mueller assaulted the pop star and that Swift's mother and radio liaison were within their rights to contact his bosses.

When he was fired, Mueller sued the Swifts and their radio handler, Frank Bell, seeking up to $3 million for his ruined career.

Swift countersued for $1, arguing Mueller had groped her at a concert at the Pepsi Center in Denver. The lawsuit against Swift was dismissed by U.S. District Judge William Martinez on Friday.

A photo from the concert was presented as evidence against Mueller. In the photo, which wasn't publicly released, Mueller's hand is behind Swift and just below her waist.

Swift testified that after she was groped she notified her photographer of the incident and found the photo of herself with Mueller.

Swift's mother, Andrea Swift, testified that she asked Bell to call Mueller's employer, but did not report the incident to police.

"We absolutely wanted to keep it private, but we didn't want him to get away with it," Andrea Swift testified.

Mueller's attorney, Gabriel McFarland, argued that his client wouldn't have compromised his career to reach beneath the pop star's skirt.
