Swift in court over alleged groping

Mueller alleged that he'd lost his job because Swift had wrongfully accused him of sexual assault.

The judge said that "Taylor Swift did not act improperly". Swift had sued the ex-radio DJ for groping her at a 2013 concert when she posed for a photo with him and his girlfriend.

The judge in Taylor Swift's groping trial has thrown DJ David Mueller's case out of court. The Guardian reported that the radio host said, "No, I did not [grab her backside]".

Swift's attorney Douglas Baldridge argued in court Friday that Mueller's grievance "is with KYGO, not with my client". Grabbing a woman's rear end is an assault, and it's always wrong. "She told her mother, and that's it", Baldridge said.

Moreover, Mueller also sued Swift's mother, Andrea Swift, and her radio handler, Frank Bell, on the same allegations. The management company was not named in Mueller's lawsuit. Taylor Swift is claiming that Mueller grabbed her just beneath her skirt and one of her security guards witnessed it. "I knew she was uncomfortable". Mueller's lawyer Gabriel McFarland repeatedly pressed Dent on why he didn't step in. Swift is expected to testify. 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 alleged assault is said to have occurred in 2013 during a Denver stopover on the singer's Red tour. Mueller was sacked by radio station KXGO two days after the 2013 incident and has been unable to find a job since. According to the report, the former DJ is seeking up to $3 million worth of compensation from Swift's camp to pay for the damages upon his career.

Gossip Cop also reported that if Swift is awarded any additional damages, she said she will donate the money to a women's rights charity.
