Back in 2013 when the groping happened, Swift privately reported Mueller who was sacked by the radio station.
The DJ attempted to sue Taylor after he claimed that he had lost his job after Taylor accused him of groping her at an event in 2013. The federal jury in Denver, Colorado ruled in Swift's favor.
In her interview with Time, Swift opened up about what it was like to win in court against Mueller, while also revealing that he had yet to pay her. Almost four months after this verdict, Mueller has finally paid that $1, a Sacajawea coin that he mailed to the singer on November 28, he told the Associated Press in a letter.
In an earlier AP interview, Mueller said he was planning to send her a coin featuring Sacagawea, a prominent Native American woman, in a freaky jab at the musician.
There are no words...just disgust. My mom was so upset after her cross-examination, she was physically too ill to come to court the day I was on the stand. As SWIFT's suit requested, the jury has awarded her $1. In that moment, I chose to forego any courtroom formalities and just answer the questions the way it happened. 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?
Keep on shining, TayTay! Swift countersued Mueller for $1, accusing him of assault and battery - and won. The details were all skewed, as they often are.
Our essential brief on culture, the news, and more.
Swift said prepping for the case and testifying was draining, hard and confusing to some people who didn't realize she was the defendant in the case. She appears on the cover and speaks inside the magazine about her experience during the "demoralizing court process".
She claimed that her fans had given her a lot of support throughout the court case and gave them and other victims of sexual assault some advice. "You should not be blamed for waiting 15 minutes or 15 days or 15 years to report sexual assault or harassment, or for the outcome of what happens to a person after he or she makes the choice to sexually harass or assault you". You might be made to feel like you're overreacting, because society has made this stuff seem so casual. Mueller, however, still hasn't paid up, an "act of defiance" Swift believes "is symbolic in itself".
