A follow-up on a segment we shared with you about a week ago concerning the Taylor Swift trial — From her “Wildest Dreams,” to her worst nightmare … Swift was being sued by the radio DJ who claimed she accused him of sexually assaulting her at a meet and greet which he claims ruined his radio career, making $150,000 a year, after being fired from the radio station he worked at. He was asking for millions in damages, while Swift counter-sued him for $1 on a matter of principle claiming she has never been so sure of anything in her life and felt very violated. The incident took place back in 2013 before a concert. On the sixth day of the trial, a federal jury, made up of six women and two men, found that Ms. Swift was assaulted, and the judge dismissed the case. Meanwhile, Swift was awarded the $1 she asked for as a matter of principle. The Denver DJ, David Mueller, lost his case and received nothing. Pretty gutsy move to sue your so-called victim, trying to take her for millions. I wonder if it was worth the public humiliation. I would bet on it, the answer is no.
