Swift in court over alleged groping

Swift in court over alleged groping

Mueller, 55, is suing Swift, alleging she and her team slandered him by telling his employer about the incident, resulting in his firing. "I saw her push her skirt down and move away", towards Mueller's girlfriend, who was standing on Swift's other side. "I was visibly uncomfortable", Swift said, according to an Us Weekly reporter who was in the courtroom on Thursday.

The alleged assault is said to have occurred in 2013 during a Denver stopover on the singer's Red tour.

Mueller is suing Swift because he was sacked from his radio co-host job in 2013 after she claimed he lifted her skirt and grabbed her butt while they posed for a photo at a meet and greet during her Denver Red Tour concert.

Ms Swift's ex-bodyguard gave evidence on Friday, backing her sex assault claims by testifying that he saw the DJ reach under her skirt.

The league also consulted with medical experts. "My body still feels good", McFadden said, via the Star-Telegram . Patrick's Day incident wasn't part of the decision on discipline, it reflected poorly on Elliott.

As she faced Mueller's defense attorneys, Swift confirmed that David Mueller had, in fact, grabbed her butt during a 2013 meet and greet.

She also said she was stunned and did not say anything to Mueller or halt the event after he left because she did not want to disappoint several dozen people waiting in line for photos with her. "A very long grab", she added in her testimony. Mueller is seeking up to $3 million worth of damages as compensation for his ruined career. The photo of Swift, Mueller and his girlfriend shows the morning show host on radio station KYGO with his hand behind the singer's rear end.

She said she and Mueller started out as co-workers at country station KYGO-FM and became romantically involved in February 2013, a few months before the concert. A jury will now decide if they are accountable for Mr Mueller's sacking. Swift's assistants testified in depositions that as soon as the photo session ended, the singer told everyone in the room about the incident.

The case is being tried in federal court under a law allowing the proceeding when the parties live in separate states and the dispute involves a damages claim higher than $75,000.
