Four years after the backstage meet and greet that started it all, the trial involving Taylor Swift and Denver DJ David Mueller ended on Monday, when the jury found Mueller guilty of assault and battery -- and dismissed the charges of tortious interference against Swift, her mother Andrea, and a member of the singer’s management team, Frank Bell.
