Taylor Swift's allegation that a former morning radio host reached under her skirt and grabbed her backside during a photo session is bringing attention to a common but largely hidden outrage for many women.

U.S. District Judge William Martinez dismissed Muller's claim against Swift on Friday, claiming that he could not prove the pop star ruined his career over allegations that he groped her during a concert in 2013, reports E!

She also said that she was doing this as an example for young victims of sexual assault around the world.

Swift was very happy to hear the judge's ruling, hugging members of her legal team.

As she faced Mueller's defense attorneys, Swift confirmed that David Mueller had, in fact, grabbed her butt during a 2013 meet and greet. Swift is countersuing Mueller and alleges assault. When she told a male friend, he asked if she had enjoyed it.


The singer's mother, Andrea Swift, and Frank Bell, her radio manager who contacted the station about the incident, work for Swift's management company, 13 Management LLC.

Swift countersued, saying she wanted a symbolic $1 and the chance to stand up for other women.

On Friday, Swift's bodyguard, Greg Dent, testified against Mueller and said that he witnessed the alleged assault. "I was visibly uncomfortable", Swift said, according to an Us Weekly reporter who was in the courtroom on Thursday.

Mueller was sacked by radio station KXGO two days after the 2013 incident and has been unable to find a job since.

Mueller, 55, had sued the pop star for $ 3m, saying that the 27-year-old cost him his job.
