For the first time on Thursday, US Pop singer Taylor Swift took to the witness stand, delivering firm and spirited testimony in a civil trial, describing as "horrifying

Pop star Taylor Swift has won a sexual assault case against ex-radio DJ David Mueller, who she said had groped her at a June 2013 concert.

After nearly four hours of deliberation, Ms Swift prevailed over former DJ Mueller, who had sued her for costing him his job after she accused him of grabbing (groping) her during a meet-and-greet.

“He Grabbed My Ass,” Says Taylor Swift While Testifying Against “Sacked” DJ In Groping Lawsuit

Instead of the monetary damages he sought, Mr Mueller received a jury verdict that he was guilty of assault and battery.He will be required to pay $1 in damages to Swift.

The jury, comprised of six women and two men, also found the singer’s mother, Andrea Swift, not liable for tortious interference.

After the reading of the verdict, Swift embraced her mother.

In a statement, Swift thanked the judge and her legal team for “fighting for me and anyone who feels silenced by a sexual assault.”

“I acknowledge the privilege that I benefit from in life, in society and in my ability to shoulder the enormous cost of defending myself in a trial like this,” Swift added in the statement, adding that “My hope is to help those whose voices should also be heard. Therefore, I will be making donations in the near future to multiple organizations that help sexual assault victims defend themselves.”

Mr Mueller had originally tried to sue the pop star, saying that her claims had cost him his job. But that lawsuit was thrown out by a judge last week.

On Monday, the jury also rejected similar claims Mueller had made against the singer’s mother, Andrea Swift, and her radio liaison, Frank Bell.
