Taylor Swift expected to testify against alleged groper in court

Taylor Swift

Jury selection begins today in Denver.

In her deposition a year ago, Swift described the incident in detail, explaining how in 2013 the Denver disc jockey allegedly reached his hand up her skirt and groped her backstage at her concert at the Pepsi Centre in Denver.

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.

The case David Mueller filed back in 2015 stated that he had lost his income because of Taylor Swift's claims and that she and her mother bullied his former employers into firing him.

Mueller sued Swift, claiming her false accusations did irreparable harm to his professional reputation and resulted in his wrongful termination.

Former radio host David Mueller, 55, was in court and arrived with his lawyer Gabriel McFarland.

Mueller is seeking up to $3 million in damages.

Could Taylor Swift lose her case?

Taylor is now expected to testify in the civil court this week, with opening statements thought to begin on Tuesday, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

U.S. District Court judge William Martinez will be presiding over the trial at the Alfred A. Arraj courthouse in Denver.

Her countersuit against Mueller claims sexual assault.

"Right as the moment came for us to pose for the photo, he (Mueller) 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.it was not an accident", Swift said during a deposition, per The Daily Beast. TMZ published the photo in question last November. Once the meet-and-greet was over, she says she alerted her mother as well as others on her team about what had allegedly happened.

Mueller's boss said the DJ told him during an internal investigation that any contact during the photo op was incidental or accidental.

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

Mueller claims he was later confronted by one of Swift's security guards over the allegation and told the man he should call the police.

The basis for Mueller's suit stemmed from the money he was making prior to being fired-reportedly around $150,000 base salary, plus various bonuses-and his belief he had not touched Swift inappropriately at any time. Swift's attorney Douglas Baldridge was also present.

Swift plans to donate any winnings from the trial to a charity that fights against, and protects women from, sexual assault. If you're not one of those groups of 32, an overflow room in the courthouse will be made available for an additional 75 people, who will be allowed to watch the trial on closed-circuit television.
