Taylor Swift Speaks Out After Winning Groping Case

Share

In a statement sent to news media after the verdict, Swift said she meant to donate to organizations that help sexual assault victims.

Baldridge also gave a brief statement on the steps of the courthouse.

"This really means something for the one in four women who are victims of sexual assault".

The lawyer for former DJ David Mueller, Gabriel McFarland, questioned Monday whether the pop star's smiling face in a photo she appeared in with Mueller was the face of someone who was upset.

Swift testified during the trial and was unmovable, calling BS on Mueller's claim that all he did was touch her rib cage.

Taylor Swift just scored a big win as the judge threw out DJ David Mueller's case against her.

Taylor Swift fans showed their support to the singer. However, Mueller's claim against Swift's mother and her radio manager, Bell, was allowed to proceed, the judge said.

The attorney also noted that the reason Swift asked for only $1 in the suit is that she had no intention of bankrupting him.

Baldridge's argument followed, calling Mueller's lawsuit "audacious and ridiculous" and pointed out that no evidence has been presented disproving Swift's story either. She testified that she saw nothing happen during the brief encounter and that she and Mueller were rudely confronted and escorted out of the arena that evening.

It was a trial filled with passionate rhetoric, often by Swift herself.

The 27-year-old singer issued a statement to Us Weekly after winning the trial. "It was a definite grab, a very long grab". Mueller's arm is seen behind Swift's waist. And just now after the verdict, he said that today something good happened, that the dollar that she countersued for was symbolic of all victims who have not been able to speak out.

She continued: "I don't know anything about Mr. Mueller".

"I didn't take my eyes off him, I was glaring at him", she adds.

Despite being cleared from Mueller's lawsuit, Swift's mother, Andrea, and her radio liaison, Frank Bell, will still face Mueller's case. Andrea wept, while Mueller didn't even look at his attorneys. In another instance, Mueller's lawyer asked why she wasn't critical of her bodyguard for not keeping Mueller away from her.

Wills then describes how a few months ago, as she walked up the bustling 6 Avenue on her way to a Soul Cycle spin class, a man "looking me straight in the eyes... purposefully ran into me, and with a cupped hand, grabbed my crotch".
