    Global pop sensation Taylor Swift has won her case against Colorado DJ David Mueller over a year-old groping incident.

    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.

    After the event Swift told her boss that the man groped her bare bottom during the photoshoot.

    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.
