The jury ruled in favor of Taylor Swift on Monday, in a high-profile case in which she accused a Denver radio DJ of groping her. At first,  the DJ sued Swift, her mother and her manager for falsely accusing him of assault and getting him fired from his job. Swift countersued for a dollar, saying the DJ put his hand up her skirt and groped her while taking a picture.

With Swift being such a megastar in the pop-culture we’d assume the lawsuit would be for a lump sum of money. But it’s been reported that she only countersued for 1 dollar because she believes that the dollar that she countersued for was symbolic of all victims who have not been able to speak out.
