Taylor Swift in court over groping case

David Mueller filed a $3 million (£2.3 million) suit against Swift in September, 2015, claiming he lost his job at Denver radio station KYGO after the singer falsely accused him of lifting up her skirt and touching her butt during a backstage meet-and-greet at a 2013 concert in the city.

TMZ reports, that Swift and her lawyer were in court on Tuesday for David Mueller's defamation against her and noted her countersuit is for only $1.

Swift, who was 23 at the time of the incident, countersued Mueller, accusing him of "reaching under her dress and grabbing her bottom" as they posed for a photo.

While David Mueller claims he was only touching Swift's ribcage with his closed fist while testifying on Tuesday, during cross-examination, the former KYGO morning show host admitted in the photo, his hand is clearly quite a bit below that.

They were questioned specifically about their familiarity with either Swift or Mueller and whether they considered themselves to be fans of their work.

Expected to take the witness stand herself later in the trial, Swift listened intently to Mueller's testimony, resting her chin in her hand. Mueller also said he spilled water on a second computer, and accidentally smashed an iPad.

If Swift wins her case, the money will be donated to "charitable organizations dedicated to protecting women from similar acts of sexual assault and personal disregard".

Mueller also testified that he was let go from a station in Kansas City, something that in a prior deposition he said did not necessarily help his radio career.

"This was an assault and Ms Swift reported that it happened".

A jury is expected to be seated soon in Taylor Swift's civil trial involving a groping allegation against a former DJ.

Mueller claims in his lawsuit that he is being falsely accused by Swift and he was sacked over her allegation.

He said Mueller, who was 51 at the time of the incident, changed his story seven times since it occurred.

Baldridge, though, said Mueller "grabbed my client's rear end, plain and simple" and concluded, "it's not 'inapproriate touching.' It was assault".

- Frank Bell, a member of the singer's team, contacted Mueller's bosses at the station KYGO.

McFarland asked Mueller if his hand was underneath Swift's skirt, referring to the meet-and-greet photo shown on monitors in the courtroom.

In addition, Baldridge referenced Mueller's description of Swift in a court deposition as cold and standoffish. "It's an assault", Baldridge said.

Baldridge showed the jury several photographs of fans meeting with Swift before the 2013 concert in Denver, pointing out another man who had his arm around Taylor's shoulder.
