"I was angry. In that moment, I made a decision to forgo any courtroom formalities and just answer the questions the way it happened. My advice is that you not blame yourself and do not accept the blame others will try to place on you", she said. He was sacked from country radio station KYGO days after Swift's management team reported what happened. However, Mueller still hasn't acknowledged her victory.

Almost four months after Taylor Swift won her sexual assault case against a Denver radio host, the pop star is speaking out about her "demoralizing" days in court. She was honoured alongside Tarana Burke, Ashley Judd, Susan Fowler, Adama Iwu, Isabel Pascual, Terry Crews, Rose McGowan and more. "[Swift is] very, very sweet, very, very genuine, extremely generous, picks up the phone every time I call her".

Swift said that during the trial she leaned on fellow musician Kesha, who's faced a years-long legal battle with producer Dr. Luke over sexual assault.

When Swift and Mueller's legal proceedings were in the national spotlight, Tay turned to Kesha - who's now involved her own lengthy legal battle against her former producer, Dr. Luke, whom she alleges sexually assaulted and emotionally abused her - for help.

"In that moment, I chose to forego any courtroom formalities and just answer the questions the way it happened", she continued. Taylor is included in this bunch, as her story and bravery represents similar situations that happen to so many women around the world.

When asked about why she came forward about the incident, Taylor said that she was concerned that David's actions weren't just an isolated incident.

Minnesota had $3.07 million in bonus pool money before the trades, but it is not among the finalists in the Ohtani bidding. Rosenthal noted the Angels received $ 1 million in additional worldwide slot money as a result of the move.

Swift's straightforward testimony was widely reported at the time, and she explained that that was the only way to counteract what she'd been through.

If you feel like you've been the victim of sexual harassment at work - including conduct such as offensive jokes, slurs, name-calling, physical assaults or threats, intimidation, ridicule or mockery, insults or put-downs, offensive objects or pictures, and interference with work performance - there are groups who will support you and help you break your silence.

Is this a watershed moment for the way we think about sexual assault and harassment in culture?

'Even when you win, even when you have the financial ability to defend yourself. there are still so many people who feel victimized, afraid and silenced by their abusers and circumstances'. "This man hadn't considered any formalities when he assaulted me".

During her court proceedings, Taylor turned to the "Rainbow" singer, who is now embroiled in her own legal battle against her former producer Dr. Luke, whom she claims sexually assaulted and emotionally abused her.

"This is the fastest moving social change we've seen in decades, and it began by individual acts of courage by women, and some men, too, who came forward", Time's editor in chief Ed Helms said.
