The trial took place in Denver, Colorado after former radio DJ David Mueller sued the "Bad Blood" hit maker and her crew for up to $3 million in total damages, claiming that he lost his job because Swift personally orchestrated for him to be fired.
US District Judge William Martinez decided that Swift was not liable as Mueller has not been able to provide sufficent evidence that she had gone out of her way to fire him from his position. Mueller is said to have groped Swift during a photo-op at a concert in 2013. According to the judge who handled the case, William Martinez, #Taylor Swift is not guilty and not liable since Mueller can not give a sufficient evidence that Taylor has set out to get him dismissed from his job.
