Former KYGO radio host David Mueller sued Taylor Swift after she accused him of groping her
August 15, 2017
A federal jury on Monday found that a former radio show host groped singer Taylor Swift before a 2013 concert in Denver, and it awarded her a symbolic $1 in damages.
The jury also found that neither Swift's mother nor her radio promotions manager interfered with David Mueller's employment contract when they reported the assault.
Swift issued a statement thanking her attorneys and the judge "for fighting for me and anyone who feels silenced by a sexual assault, and especially anyone who offered their support throughout this four-year ordeal and two-year-long trial process."
Mueller, a former KYGO radio host, sued Swift, her mother and her radio promotions manager, Frank Bell, in 2015. Mueller claimed that they interfered with his employment at KYGO after Bell reported to the station Swift's claims that the host had groped her and said it could have "grave" consequences on the relationship between the singer and the station. Mueller had sought up to $3 million, saying the allegation cost him his job and reputation.
