In February 2016, Swift donated $250,000 to Kesha to help with legal fees, and in August, Kesha tweeted her support for Swift during her groping trial. He sued her for $3 million in damages, and she countersued him for $1.
The jury sided with Swift. The reason? Swift claimed that he "grabbed her a*s" while posing for a photo. "I never have said anything different". "I squirmed and lurched sideways to get away from him, but he wouldn't let go", Swift recalled. "I know it was him".
Swift's loyal fans were eager to point out the importance of her role in this year's watershed moment of reckoning in regards to sexual assault and harassment, responding strongly to any backlash or protests on Twitter. In the weekend following the trial, the Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network (RAINN) reported a 35 percent increase for its national hotline.
And, by the way, that $1 that the court awarded Swift in her case? At the time, I was headlining a major arena tour and there were a number of people in the room that saw this plus a photo of it happening.

"It means 'no means no" and it tells every woman they will decide what will be tolerated with their body, 'Taylor's attorney said, according to The Independent via Reuters at the time.
"In that moment, I chose to forego any courtroom formalities and just answer the questions the way it happened", Swift said of her own testimony. At the time of the interview, she said she hadn't received the payment from Mueller.
Swift said prepping for the case and testifying was draining, hard and confusing to some people who didn't realize she was the defendant in the case. You were America's sweetheart, a wide-eyed awkward Bambi acting surprised whenever greeted by applause; You donate money to children with cancer and desperately want to be seen as a bad ass, but as the mute of the silence breaker gracing Time's Person of the Year cover, do you really deserve the recognition?
Swift put aside her characteristically demure public persona when she took the stand to provide explosive testimony in open court, letting loose on Mueller and his lawyers in no uncertain terms after enduring days of her team and even her mother being badgered on the witness stand. The court ultimately sided with Swift in the case, and ordered Mueller to pay her the symbolic dollar. "To this day, he has not paid me that dollar, and I think that act of defiance is symbolic in itself".
