James Woods joined a chorus or praise for Taylor Swift as a lawsuit brought against her by a former radio DJ was dismissed by a U.S. District judge.
The actor weighed in on the trial as Swift’s former bodyguard testified on Friday, tweeting that the singer did not need “the aggravation of a lawsuit.”

That lawsuit, seeking $3 million in damages, was filed against Swift by former radio host David Mueller who alleged that the pop star’s accusations about him groping her during a 2013 meet-and-greet were false and cost him his job.
U.S. District Judge William Martinez dismissed the civil case on Friday on request of Swift’s attorney, determining that the singer was not liable since she did not set out to have Mueller fired after the incident. The ruling came after Swift’s former bodyguard, Greg Dent, testified that he saw the alleged groping when it happened but did not intervene because Swift did not give him any signal to act, according to Fox News.
Woods tweeted a follow up message Friday, praising Swift and condemning men who “molest” women.

The Grammy-winning songwriter had taken the stand herself on Thursday, testifying about the “despicable and horrifying and shocking” encounter with the former KYGO-FM host at the Denver backstage meet-and-greet.

“He stayed attached to my bare ass-cheek as I lurched away from him,” Swift testified about the moment she posed for a photo with Mueller and his girlfriend at the time, Shannon Melcher.
“It was a definite grab. A very long grab,” the 27 year-old singer testified.

Swift is counter-suing Mueller for just $1, saying it is a chance to stand up for other women.
Not the biggest fan of Taylor Swift but I’m so enjoying the fact she is suing a man for $1 and the message it’s sending.

Her testimony drew praises from celebrities who praised her for her bravery and, in the words of Grey’s Anatomy creator Shonda Rhimes, displaying “feminist badassery.”
