Taylor Swift expected to testify in groping case in Denver

Taylor Swift is expected to testify as her legal battle with a former radio DJ, David Mueller, over allegations he groped her, arrives in court this week.

The former 98.5 KYGO-FM DJ, David Mueller, met and posed for a photo with Swift at a backstage meet-and-greet during her June 2013 Denver concert.

"It was not an accident, it was completely intentional, and I have never been so sure of anything in my life", Swift said in a deposition.

Mueller was sacked two days after the meet-and-greet with Swift. "Swift, Mueller intentionally reached under her skirt, and groped with his hand an intimate part of her body in an inappropriate manner, against her will, and without her permission", Swift's countersuit filed in October 2015 reads.

It's unclear when Swift will take the stand. Right after the incident, a member of Swift's team confronted him, and Mueller and his girlfriend, who was also in attendance, were escorted off the premises.

Swift countersued, alleging sexual assault by Mueller. Swift knows exactly who committed the assault - it was Mueller - and she is not confused in the slightest about whether her long-term business acquaintance, Mr. Haskell, was the culprit.

But if this is representative of how such export cuts will be calculated, then price hikes will depend on increased demand. Yesterday, they fell $1.53, or 3 percent, to settle at $50.31 a barrel on their last day as the front-month contract.

The Post said Taylor didn't file charges with police at the time and the incident mostly flew under the radar until Mueller filed his lawsuit against the singer in September 2015, spurring Swift's countersuit. Resolution of this counterclaim will demonstrate that Mueller alone was the perpetrator of the humiliating and wrongful conduct targeted against Ms.

Swift, one of the most successful contemporary music artists, earned $170 million between June 2015 and June 2016 following a world tour and her best-selling "1989" album, according to Forbes Magazine.

Mueller denies any inappropriate contact. David Mueller's attorney has confirmed that Mueller will also be testifying in the trial. He went to his vehicle to drop off an autographed photo then returned to the arena, where he was confronted by Swift's security guard.

Swift counter-sued with claims he assaulted her. Mueller was removed from the concert after security guards tracked him down, and Swift's team gave the photo to the station. 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. Clothing, buttons, banners, and signs with names or messages regarding either party of interest are strictly prohibited, and electronic devices including phones, laptops, and tablets are not welcome in the courtroom, and will have to be checked with security before you're allowed to enter. Swift says she will donate any money she receives to charities.

This one is pretty straightforward, but the whole thing is expected be done in just over a week.
