Taylor Swift watches jury selection for trial against Denver DJ

  • Taylor Swift expected to testify in photo grope case

Swift countersued, claiming sexual assault, setting up a civil trial set to begin Monday in federal court in Denver that will largely turn on who the eight-member jury believes. Swift's attorney Douglas Baldridge was also present.

"Right as the moment came for us to pose for the photo, he took his hand and put it up my dress and grabbed onto my ass cheek and no matter how much I scooted over it was still there", Swift explained. "It was completely intentional, I've never been so sure of anything in my life".

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.

Two days after the incident on June 2, 2013, he was sacked from his $150,000-a-year job following an internal investigation conducted by Lincoln Financial Media.

She is seeking a verdict that awards her $1, while holding Mueller responsible and "serving as an example to other women who may resist publicly reliving similar outrageous and humiliating acts". 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.

One juror was dismissed over his answer tom the question, "In a lawsuit between David Mueller and Taylor Swift would you have bias for or against either Taylor Swift or David Mueller?".

Jury selection began Monday for David Mueller's lawsuit against Taylor Swift. KYGO claims Mueller was sacked for violating the morality clause of his contract after it says it independently determined that he lied about the incident, changed his story and inappropriately touched Swift.

Mueller said Swift was cordial as he and his girlfriend left.

In it, Mueller's hand is hidden behind the singer near her bottom but he claims the only physical contact they had was when their arms brushed as they took their positions.

Ex-DJ David Mueller already has been sanctioned for destroying evidence.

Ms. Swift's pretrial deposition provided a preview of her testimony about the events at Pepsi Center, the arena in Denver not far from the courthouse.

Mueller denies anything inappropriate occurred during the brief backstage encounter in which he stood on one side of the pop star and his girlfriend on the other.

Swift and Mueller are both expected to testify, along with Mueller's former boss and members of Swift's entourage.

According to TMZ, 32 seats will be open to the public for those interested in the trial (the case has predictably drummed up plenty of buzz among Swift's fans and locals).

The trial is expected to last about two weeks, with opening statements set to start Tuesday.

Mueller's attorney, Gabriel McFarland, argues that Mueller may have been misidentified after someone else touched Swift.
