Taylor Swift to testify in DJ groping case

Taylor Swift to testify in DJ groping case

Way back in June 2013, when Swift was only 23 years old, the singer was at a concert in Denver when she met DJ David Mueller, an employee of local radio station 98.5 KYGO at the time.

Mueller says he was sacked after Bell told KYGO general manager Bob Call that Swift and her parents were "looking for specific action" to be taken by the station.

Swift's lawyers called the image "damning" proof that Mueller inappropriately touched her. Mueller argues it shows him trying to jump into the frame. Following Mueller's attempt to blame his superior at KYGO, a man named Eddie Haskell, documents from Swift's counter suit were emphatic that there was no doubt over who the guilty party was. According to USA Today, Mueller's attorney will be raising the question of mistaken identity as well as claiming that Swift only filed a lawsuit when David Mueller filed on in 2015.

Swift appeared in court in a white dress and black jacket, even though she and Mueller were not required to attend until the actual trial begins.

In a July 2016 deposition, Swift specified that Mueller had reached under her skirt and grabbed onto her "ass cheek". She tried to keep the situation "discreet and quiet and confidential" and was upset by Mueller's claim that "for some reason she might have some incentive to actually fabricate this story", her attorney, Douglas Baldridge, has argued in court.

Taylor Swift is not shaking this one off.

The nine-day hearing, at Denver's Alfred A. Arraj courthouse, will be presided over by US District Judge William Martinez. He was invited to the June 2, 2013 meet-and-greet as part of his job, and that is where the alleged groping incident took place. Swift says she'll donate any money won from the lawsuit to "charities dedicated to protecting women from similar acts of sexual assault and personal disregard".

Tillerson's comments sound at odds with those of Vice President Mike Pence, who said the president is "unified" with Congress. He said this at a briefing in Washington on Tuesday, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

Police and a bomb-sniffing dog waited in the rain Monday with about a dozen reporters before potential jurors were set to arrive for questioning. "I've never been so sure of anything in my life".

A member of Swift's staff called Mueller's boss at radio station KYGO and asked that the station "take appropriate action". She says she wants to hold Mueller accountable and is seeking $1.

- Greg Dent, Swift's bodyguard, may be called to testify about what he saw during the encounter.

Swift, told Mr. Mueller that he greeted her at the Pepsi Center by putting his "hands on her bottom".

Mr. Mueller, who is scheduled to testify, has repeatedly denied groping Ms.

Immediately after the meet-and-greet, Swift says, she confirmed the assault with a photographer and security staff, who then confronted Mueller.
