Taylor Swift not guilty

August 14, 2017 - 9:00am

U.S. District Judge William Martinez threw out a lawsuit by former radio host David Mueller against Taylor Swift on Friday.

The suit claimed Swift personally sought to have Mueller fired after he allegedly groped her during a meet-and-greet in 2013; Martinez determined there was insufficient evidence of Mueller's claim against Swift, but his suits against Swift's mother and radio promotions director will be allowed to proceed to a jury decision.

Meanwhile, Swift's suit against Mueller was advanced Friday by her bodyguard's testimony that "she moved, [and] pushed [her] skirt down" to escape the grope. She is suing for $1.

Taylor took the stand on Thursday to recount the "shocking" and "horrifying" incident, and her candid testimony drew support from celebs and the general public on Twitter. The praise for the singer continued following the news of the dismissal.
