Taylor Swift Alleged Groping Trial: Everything You Need to Know

Pop star Taylor Swift is expected to take the stand to testify about her claim that a former Colorado radio host groped her.

Swift alleged that Mueller put his hand up her skirt and grabbed her bare bottom when they took a photo together during the pre-concert fan meet-and-greet on the Denver stop of her Red tour. "It was completely intentional, and I have never been so sure of anything in my life".

Mueller was sacked from his job at a country music station after Taylor's team told his boss that Mueller grabbed her buttock during a meet-and-greet before a 2013 Swift concert in Denver.

It seems unlikely that either side in the case is in the mood to settle, meaning the jury trial considering both sides' lawsuits should go ahead this week, and could last for two weeks.

Other parties named in Mueller's suit include Swift's mother, Andrea, and Swift's manager, Frank Bell. Swift's attorney Douglas Baldridge was also present.

According to CNN, Taylor Swift has filed a lawsuit against a former DJ by the name of #David Mueller claiming that he sexually assaulted her back in 2013.

Swift countersued for assault and battery and that became part of the same trial.

Finally, jurors were asked if they or anyone in their immediate family are fans of Taylor Swift, and if they had recently listened to our purchased any of her music.

He and Melcher were then escorted out of the Pepsi Center and he was sacked two days later, after Swift's radio promotions manager Frank Bell told Mueller's bosses about the incident.

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

Mueller denies any inappropriate contact. 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. (Mueller's team argues that the DJ was simply trying to jump into the frame). 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 in question has been made public by gossip blog TMZ, despite a judge's ruling that dissemination of the photo would "significantly complicate jury selection".

According to the Denver Post, 32 passes will be available for each of the morning and afternoon courtroom sessions on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Swift and Mueller aren't required to be in court for jury selection, which is expected to end Tuesday. Swift says she will donate any money she receives to charities. That is how it should be framed and thought of, because the location of the groping is not as important as whether or not she was groped in general.
