A lawsuit against Taylor Swift was recently dismissed. After five days of trial, it was decided on Friday, August 11, that former radio disc jockey, David Mueller, failed to prove that Swift's "false" accusations had cost him his career.

Per NY Daily News, Judge William J. Martinez said that there was “no evidence” that Swift did anything improper when she reported that she believed an assault happened to her. The judge added that Swift did not "act improperly.”

The start of another case?

Mueller's case against Taylor Swift might have been terminated but the latter's mother #Andrea Swift, as well as the singer's radio manager, Frank Bell, are still respondents in a previously filed lawsuit that sought damages of up to $3 million.

The jury is yet to decide the following week if Swift's mother and the manager had any form of interference with Mueller's contract to get him fired.

According to Judge Martinez, Mueller should have named the management company, which employs Bell and Andrea Swift in his lawsuit. This was something the former DJ failed to do in a timely manner.

Regarding the #groping incident, Gregory Dent, #Taylor Swift's former bodyguard, testified that Mueller reached under Swift's dress, back in June 2013 at a pre-concert meet-and-greet at Pepsi Center in Denver. Under oath, Dent said that he saw what Mueller did and although he did not know how long the act lasted, Swift was clearly disgusted.

Swift did not make a big fuss about it and went on with the event, that's why Dent did not act upon what he saw.

The bodyguard was firm that Mueller crossed a line. He added that it was a violation of Swift's body.

Are fans not liking court sketches of Taylor Swift?

Meanwhile, fans reacted to court sketches of their favorite singer. Many said that they did not quite capture Taylor Swift's real features.

In a report from CNN, fans took to social media and tweeted that the sketches do not look like Swift at all. They even asked if the sketch artist happens to be Katheryn Hudson, aka Katy Perry.

Since photographs are not allowed in court, these illustrations are the only updates that can be looked forward to, in terms of visual documentation. Here are some of the tweets:

What if this happened to a regular person?

This issue made me reflect on how many women keep quiet when an incident like this happens to them.

Of course, it takes place on a daily basis. I'm not saying that only women get violated like this, of course, the opposite sex has their fair share.

Which makes me think, what do these people get out of harassing others? If it made them feel superior for a time, and then what? They get reprimanded and can't even justify the actions that they did.

The mere idea of catcalling baffles me as well. Nothing wrong with just starting to respect each other, right?
