The jury has come up with a verdict in the sexual harassment trial between Taylor Swift and former radio host David Mueller, ruling that Mueller assaulted and battered Swift during an incident from June 2013.
In testimony throughout the trial, Swift was adamant about her account of the events: That Mueller grabbed her butt while they were at a meet-and-greet in Denver on Swift's "Red" tour.
While Mueller originally sued Swift for $3 million (about P154,095,000) in damages after losing his job due to her public comments, she counter-sued for sexual assault and battery for just $1 (about P51.37), which the jury awarded her on Monday.
Before the jury's verdict, which they reached after several hours, Swift listened as Mueller's defense attorney Gabe McFarland attempted to discredit a photo taken during the alleged incident, saying, "Is that the face of someone who's had someone grab their butt? Who is shocked? There's nothing in Taylor Swift's face to suggest anything is wrong."
As People characterized, "Meanwhile, Swift herself turned away from the public gallery towards her mother and dabbed tears from her eyes." But the emotional day came to a satisfying, and hopefully cathartic, end for the singer.
