Victory for Taylor Swift in her groping case against a former DJ: The jury ruled in her favor Monday, ordering David Mueller to pay her $1 in damages, CNN reports. After Swift accused Mueller of groping her during a meet-and-greet event in 2013 and he subsequently lost his job, he sued her, her mother, and radio promotions director Frank Bell. Swift countersued for a symbolic $1, alleging Mueller sexually assaulted her, and the jury's ruling comes after four days of testimony in the civil trial. A judge had already dismissed Swift as a defendant in Mueller's suit, and in addition to ruling in her favor Monday, the jury found her mother and Bell not liable for tortious interference, which Mueller had accused them of.
