1$! Jury Finds Taylor Swift Told The Truth
... one of the stranger lawsuits in recent memory comes to a close. The DJ who sued a pop star to supposedly regain his reputation ended up proving her case to the jury without her attorney calling a single witness. A Denver jury sided with Taylor Swift, who countersued and accused David Mueller of sexual assault, and awarded her the symbolic single dollar she demanded:

Swift’s attorney summed up the situation nicely during closing arguments:It only cost him a buck, and court costs, and a job.
Doug Baldridge, Swift’s lawyer, countered that eight witnesses saw the assault, and that Mueller lost his job because “he grabbed her butt and got caught. Now he’s victimizing her again to save his butt.”Yeah, that worked out well, eh?
"Being groped just isn't my thing" said Taylor swiftly.
