Taylor Swift Has Yet to Receive $1 From Court Case Win

Taylor Swift Has Yet to Receive $1 From Court Case Win

" The singer made the list after winning a case against DJ David Mueller following a groping incident she says took place in 2013 - but her battle against him remains unfinished". After Swift complained, Mueller was sacked, but he then retaliated and sued Swift for damages, asking for millions of dollars in retribution. In a story published Wednesday, she said she hadn't received the dollar. Mueller then sued Swift for defamation; she countersued for a symbolic $1-and won.

Swift told Time she became angry as she watched Mueller's attorney "bully, badger and harass" her mother, who felt so "physically ill" after a cross-examination that she couldn't return to court when her daughter took the stand. Swift, as well as actresses Rose McGowan, Ashley Judd, activist Tarana Burke and many others who have publicly accused men in power of assaulting women are included.

"To this day he has not paid me that dollar", Swift admitted in the new issue of Time magazine, via a report by Hollywood Life on December 6. I figured that if he would be brazen enough to assault me under these risky circumstances and high stakes, imagine what he might do to a vulnerable, young artist if given the chance. For her, it was necessary to report the groping incident. The radio station conducted its own investigation and fired him.

It's true that even after her win, and being given this honor, some people still criticize her about the case. Most people thought I was suing him. The details were all skewed, as they often are.

Swift goes on to talk about how Mueller didn't consider "formalities" while grabbing her, so she chose to be blunt on the stand, adding, "his lawyer didn't hold back on my mom - why should I be polite?" "This man hadn't considered any formalities when he assaulted me, and his lawyer didn't hold back on my mom-why should I be polite?" she explained.

What happened in the courtroom made headlines for weeks, but one of the mot profound moments was Swift's strong testimony against Mueller. "The image that you see partially on the cover is of a woman we talked to, a hospital worker in the middle of the country, who doesn't feel like she can come forward without threatening her livelihood", he continued. I'm told it was the most amount of times the word "ass" has ever been said in Colorado Federal Court. He was sacked from country radio station KYGO days after Swift's management team reported what happened. You don't have to like Taylor Swift, but you do need to respect what she did, what that means to women, and that she too has a place in the #MeToo movement.

Swift's loyal fans were eager to point out the importance of her role in this year's watershed moment of reckoning in regards to sexual assault and harassment, responding strongly to any backlash or protests on Twitter.
