Taylor Swift in court over claims she was 'groped' by DJ

AP Top Stories August 7 P

A USA radio host denied groping pop singer Taylor Swift and accused her of ruining his career as a civil suit brought by him got underway Tuesday.

Taylor Swift's attorney says several people noticed the pop star was upset after meeting with a former disc jockey for a photo op before a 2013 concert.

"I'm not interested in Howard Stern money", Mueller said. "Any woman - rich, poor, famous or not - is entitled to not have that happen". "Swift, and will serve as an example to other women who may resist publicly reliving similar outrageous and humiliating acts", her countersuit reads. A total of eight jurors will be picked for the trial expected to last two weeks in federal court. At the time, Mueller was a host for the 98.5 KYGO-FM morning show.

When Mueller first sued Taylor, - which, mind you, was two years after he was sacked - he said that he believed she mistook him for a co-worker of his, who he said described putting his hands on Taylor's bottom while they were taking their photo.

Arthur Lewis, also 32 and a real estate agent, said he's "a big supporter of Taylor Swift and just wanted to check it out".

Andrea Swift is employed by 13 Management, and is part of her daughter's senior management team. The final jury has yet to be selected, but numerous 60 candidates were dismissed for various reasons, including one who said that Swift was being "petty and dishonest".

South African president to face parliamentary no confidence vote
United Democratic Movement leader Bantu Holomisa said his party will join the EFF in court to impeach the president. The ANC had its worst showing previous year in municipal elections as Zuma faced allegations of corruption.

Swift's team informed KYGO of what had happened and Mueller was sacked several days later for violating a "morality clause", according to Billboard.

The civil lawsuit centers on Swift's allegation that Mueller inappropriately touched her during a June 2013 meet-and-greet at Denver's Pepsi Center arena.

Mueller has alleged that Haskell had told him he was the one who groped Swift. Mueller is seeking $3 million in damages. Immediately after the photo, she yelled to her team, "Dude, that guy just grabbed my ass".

When Mueller took the stand, he told the court that he was pursuing the case to clear his name after losing his career in radio, his "passion". Swift is due to give evidence later this week.

Those devices in particular were said to possibly contain a lengthy recording with his boss, Robert Call, during which Mueller reportedly discussed changes to his story.

He claims he also accidentally damaged at least 4 other devices that may have contained evidence.

Mueller Looks at Whether Flynn Was Secretly Paid by Turkey
Sources say investigators have also asked witnesses if Flynn was secretly paid by the Turkish government. The newspaper said the document request was not a formal subpoena.

After keeping a low profile for months, Taylor Swift has put herself back in the spotlight in a bare bottom-groping trial, whose potential for embarrassment many celebrities would do their best to avoid.

Her lawyer, Douglas Baldridge, says she hopes her case will prove to women "you can always say no".

Swift countersued, claiming sexual assault, setting up the civil trial where she is expected to testify amid tightened courthouse security. Swift is said to have thanked them and they left.

Mueller's girlfriend, Shannon Melcher, said in her deposition that she noticed nothing, and Mueller said that if he touched Taylor in any way that she thought was inappropriate, that is was purely by accident.

Taylor Swift is no stranger to making empowering statements, but she is using an unconventional method to send a message this week: a lawsuit.
