Page Six reports that the music superstar Taylor Swift arrived at court in Denver, Colorado State on Monday, Aug. 7, 2017, for her legal battle against DJ David "Jackson" Mueller, whom she has accused of groping (touching or fondling another person in an unwelcome sexual way using the hands) her during a meet-and-greet in 2013.
“Right as the moment came for us to pose for the photo, he took his hand and put it up my dress and grabbed onto my butt cheek and no matter how much I scooted over it was still there. It was completely intentional, I’ve never been so sure of anything in my life," Taylor Swift said in a pre-trial deposition.
Eight jurors were selected for the trial after being questioned by the court regarding their opinions of Swift and Mueller. Both Mueller and Swift as well as Swift's mother and her manager are expected to take the stand to tell the court her version of events.
In 2015, Mueller filed a lawsuit against Swift, claiming that she falsely accused him of groping her claiming that a colleague, Eddie Haskell, was the one who had touched Swift’s bottom and was responsible for getting him fired from his radio show job. Swift, 27, countersued for assault and battery.
Swift is reportedly seeking $1 million in damages, while Mueller is aiming for $3 million. The trial is expected to last for nine days.
