Paige Brasington, 21, a Swift fan from The Woodlands, Texas, said she was groped on public transportation while studying overseas and was glad Swift was giving attention to the issue with the same honesty she brings to her music.

Taylor Swift is no longer a defendant in a lawsuit brought by a former DJ in Colorado who says her allegation that he groped her led to his firing, a judge ruled Friday evening.

Swift is counter-suing Mueller in the civil case, alleging he groped her during a 2013 "meet and greet" session with fans and invited guests before a concert. When she told a male friend, he asked if she had enjoyed it.

The "Shake It Off" hitmaker countersued the DJ for allegedly groping her after she agreed to pose for a photo with him and his girlfriend. "I saw her push her skirt down and move away", towards Mueller's girlfriend, who was standing on Swift's other side. Taylor Swift is claiming that Mueller grabbed her just beneath her skirt and one of her security guards witnessed it.

Even before that ruling, women around the world, not all of them fans of Swift's music, had been cheering the pop superstar for confronting the issue in federal court and keeping an unflinching attitude on the witness stand.

Mueller was sacked by radio station KXGO two days after the 2013 incident and has been unable to find a job since. He's seeking up to $3 million, saying the allegation cost him his job.

Swift has said she will donate any damages awarded in her suit to charities that fight sexual assault on women.
