Judge Dismisses DJ's Lawsuit In Taylor Swift Groping Trial

The singer alleged that radio host David Mueller grabbed her by the buttocks during a photo opportunity at a 2013 concert. In a statement Swift wrote she would hope that going to trial for this case will 'serve as an example to other women who may resist publicly reliving similar outrageous and humiliating acts'.

A Denver judge has thrown out David Mueller's lawsuit against Taylor Swift.

Earlier this week, Swift and her mother, Andrea, testified in front of the court. She declined to speculate how long the incident lasted.

But many never talked about it, let alone went to police. However, Mueller denies the groping claims.

Mueller claims his knuckles may have touched her ribs, well above where his arm is shown.

Ongoing global glut concerns lingered in oil markets despite a bigger-than-expected draw in US crude inventories. The DJIA was poised for a fall of 1.1%, making for its worst week since a 1.5% drop in the one ended March 24.

Mueller sued Swift after her team reported the alleged assault to his bosses at a country music station.

Swift countersued, claiming sexual assault.

Swift said that she didn't say anything at that time because she was so intimidatingly shocked, and didn't take the issue to court before being sued because she didn't want it to define her career.

Four years after Taylor Swift accused a radio station DJ of groping her before a concert in Denver, the pop superstar told her story in sometimes unflinching language and called the encounter despicable, horrifying and shocking. Martinez did say there's evidence to support a damages claim over the KYGO contract but not for future earnings.

The eight-member US District Court jury also will decide whether Mueller is liable for assault and battery, for which Swift is seeking a symbolic $1 in damages.
