Taylor Swift wins groping lawsuit, DJ must pay symbolic US$1 fine

Pop star Taylor Swift has won a long-awaited vindication after a jury decided that a radio host groped her during a pre-concert photo op four years ago.

The singer hugged her crying mother after jurors delivered the decision.

After the jury sided with her on Monday (Tuesday NZ Time), the singer sent out a statement thanking her team for fighting for her and “anyone who feels silenced by a sexual assault.”

In her statement, Swift acknowledged her privileged position and said she hopes to help “those whose voices should also be heard.” She says she’ll be donating to organisations that help sexual assault victims defend themselves.
