Four months ago, Taylor Swift was awarded a symbolic one dollar in compensation after winning her sexual assault case against DJ David Mueller.

The DJ attempted to sue Taylor after he claimed that he had lost his job after Taylor accused him of groping her at an event in 2013.

The jury came back with a guilty verdict after Taylor counter sued him for the symbolic sum.

Now, according to the Associated Press, the former DJ has attempted to use his settlement fine as one last f*** you to the pop sensation. 

He sent Taylor a coin featuring a Native American woman via post last week, according to his statement.

Mueller intended the coin to be one last attempt to insult the singer, after she called the case a 'win for all women.'

'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.

Hmmmm… we're not so sure that Taylor got the message. 

In a recent interview with Time magazine (in which she was named one of Time's people of the year) the Bad Blood songstress said that she never received the coin.

While the public may have assumed that Taylor Swift's recent triumph would signal the end of her high-profile legal battle with DJ David Mueller, reports today suggest that this may not be the case.

Following the jury's ruling in recent days, Taylor expressed her thoughts on the situation, saying: "I acknowledge the privilege that I benefit from in life, in society and in my ability to shoulder the enormous cost of defending myself in a trial like this."

"My hope is to help those whose voices should also be heard. Therefore, I will be making donations in the near future to multiple organisations that help sexual assault victims defend themselves."

While Taylor is now looking to the future, the DJ at the centre of the case is focusing his time on reiterating his defence.

Appearing on ABC News, the DJ, who was found liable of assault and battery, continues to protest his innocence, and alludes to the rumour he may appeal the verdict.

Attempting to explain his proximity to the star during the now infamous meet and greet in 2013, Mueller said: "I wasn’t invited to be in the photo, so I just moved into the shot the best I could."

Insisting that Taylor's narrative misrepresents what actually took place, he asserted: "What I’m saying is I didn’t do what they say I did. I didn’t do it."

"I never grabbed her. I never had my hand under her skirt — and I can pass a polygraph test," he added.

The jury in the case awarded the Shake It Off singer with $1 after she chose to counter-sue the DJ following his decision to sue her.

Taylor Swift is used to making the headlines for her awesome songs and #squadgoals, but if there's something you should really admire about her, it's that she refuses to be disrespected by anyone. 

According to the latest reports, Teen Vogue revealed that the singer is demanding a counter-trial against radio DJ David Mueller, who tried to sue the singer after he was fired for allegedly touching her inappropriately during a photoshoot.

For a little bit of background on Mr. Mueller, he had been fired from two on-air radio jobs before this incident and hasn't worked as a radio personality since 2006.

David also admitted that Taylor WAS assaulted that day but claims it was his superior, Eddie Haskell, who groped the singer.

"Ms. Swift knows exactly who committed the assault — it was Mueller — and she is not confused in the slightest about whether her long-term business acquaintance, Mr. Haskell, was the culprit," reads the countersuit.

"Resolution of this Counterclaim will demonstrate that Mueller alone was the perpetrator of the humiliating and wrongful conduct targeted against Ms. Swift, and will serve as an example to other women who may resist publicly reliving similar outrageous and humiliating acts."

It sounds like Taylor has already won this one and if she does, she will donate any money to "charitable organisations dedicated to protecting women from similar acts of sexual assault and personal disregard."

How amazing is she?!
