David Mueller (55) is a Radio DJ who has reportedly worked in the industry for over 20 years. The case stems from a meet-and-greet session in 2013 with Taylor Swift that the DJ was invited to.
Mueller was fired from his job after the allegations were levelled. He issued a lawsuit against the pop star for false accusations, however, Swift counter-sued, claiming sexual assault.
Now, Mueller has been found guilty of groping Swift and ordered to pay her a symbolic $1 in damages.

Despite the fact that Swift considered this win as a success, Internet users seem to be disappointed. Many people wrote on Twitter that Taylor Swift deserves more than a dollar.
It's disgusting the way women are treated in the modern world; Taylor Swift's ass is worth way more than a dollar!#Swiftbuttsforjustice— Luke Haines (@lukedoughaines) August 15, 2017
