Taylor Swift hopes verdict inspires assault victims


"My hope is to help those whose voices should also be heard", Swift said in a prepared statement, promising to make unspecified donations to groups that help victims of sexual assault.

For Swift, whose adoption of feminism as part of her public persona has been alternately applauded and questioned - she has given inspirational awards-show speeches and squabbled with other female singers - the trial provided a platform to support others.

The day after the ruling, Taylor Swift thanked fans who supported her during the trial by sharing messages in the window using Post-It notes, sending their whole office flowers.

Do you remember last week, back in the bright, hopeful days before the President of the United States was equivocating on behalf of actual Nazis, when we all still had the ability to laugh at those bad courtroom sketches of Taylor Swift?

Mueller denied any misconduct and he filed a $257,500 lawsuit against the singer, saying that she ruined his career with false accusations.

Swift said her motive for pursuing a countersuit was to "serve as an example to other women who may resist publicly reliving similar outrageous and humiliating acts".

Nancy Leong, a law professor at the University of Denver, said the verdict is important because "we are getting to the point in society that women are believed in court".
