Taylor Swift Alleged Groping Trial: Everything You Need to Know

Taylor Swift Alleged Groping Trial: Everything You Need to Know

Taylor Swift's lawsuit against a former Denver radio host who denied groping her hits federal court on Monday, with the charting-topping singer set to testify at the civil trial expected to run nine days in front of a jury of nine.

In 2015, Mueller sued Swift for making false accusations about groping her butt during a meet-and-greet in 2013 that resulted in his termination.

The Denver Post reported that security removed Mueller from the concert shortly after the meet-and-greet photo session and Swift's manager Frank Bell told KYGO about the alleged incident. "I've never been so sure of anything in my life".

The radio station investigated and two days after the incident fired Mueller for violating the morality clause of his contract, court documents show.

Now, the 27-year-old is now expected to take to the stand during civil court proceedings scheduled to begin this week.

Swift 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", her lawsuit says.

Swift then countersued for assault and battery.

Swift, 27, one of the top-selling US singers, wore a black jacket and white top in court as she watched the proceedings.

Musician Taylor Swift performs onstage during the 2017 DIRECTV NOW Super Saturday Night Concert at Club Nomadic on February 4, 2017 in Houston, Texas.

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. In Swift's testimony, her team said she'll argue that she had no reason to accuse Mueller of sexual assault if it didn't occur, as she didn't know him before the incident and didn't have any motive to try and terminate his employment. The photo shows Swift between Melcher and Mueller.

Instead, they called his boss, and David Mueller lost his job. 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. Presented with this information, U.S. District Judge William Martinez sanctioned Mueller for his actions, and ruled jury members can weigh the destruction of evidence when they make a final decision on the case.

If you've ever wanted to sit in the courtroom for a big celebrity's trial, you'll have your chance during the Swift ordeal.

Swift and Mueller aren't required to be in court for jury selection, which is expected to end Tuesday.

During that time, Swift claims he reached under her dress and grabbed her bare bottom - telling court in a sworn deposition that "it was not an accident". Then again, there's no guarantee that they'll stick to any sort of pre-supposed schedule, since Swift's presence/celebrity will add complications to a legal process already bogged down on its own.
