The trial involving Taylor Swift and Denver DJ David Mueller came to a close on Monday when the jury found Mueller guilty of assault and battery, and dismissed the charges of tortious interference against Swift, her mother Andrea, and a member of the singer’s management team, Frank Bell.
Swift had accused Mueller of groping her during a meet and greet in 2013. He, in turn, sued the singer claiming that the accusation cost him his job.
The jury ordered Mueller to pay Swift a symbolic $1 in damages, per her lawsuit.
Both before and after the verdict, Hollywood took to social media to express its support for the singer.
Kesha, who has also experienced the glare of a public trial in her legal fight with producer Dr. Luke, expressed admiration for Swift’s determination.
