"A federal jury [in Denver] found that a former radio show host groped singer Taylor Swift before a 2013 concert in Denver, and it awarded her a symbolic $1 in damages," per Denver Post's Kirk Mitchell:

  • "Swift issued a statement thanking her attorneys and the judge 'for fighting for me and anyone who feels silenced by a sexual assault.'"
  • Country deejay David Mueller sued Swift, her mother and her radio promotions manager, Frank Bell, seeking up to $3 million and claiming he was fired after Bell told the station the host had groped her.
  • Key evidence, per the N.Y. Times: a photo from a 2013 backstage meet-and-greet "that showed Mr. Mueller's hand behind Ms. Swift and near her rear." He was 51; she was 23.
  • Denver Post: "Swift countersued and sought the $1 in damages. She said she wants to serve as an example to other women who have been sexually assaulted."
  • Swift's attorney Douglas Baldridge said after the verdicts were read, "That dollar is of immeasurable value."
