Taylor Swift has filed a lawsuit against a Colorado radio personality, David Mueller, for fondling her during a photo shoot four years ago. The singer sat with her lawyers at a federal courthouse in Denver on Monday in order to select jury members for the trial which is expected to begin soon.
Swift, 27, is one of the top-selling US singers and has a huge fan following all over the world. She is expected to take the stand during the trial in US District Court in order to testify about the incident. During Monday’s jury selection, Swift was seen wearing a black jacket and white top, with pulled-back hair.
The groping incident took place on June 2, 2013, during a meet-and-greet session before her concert in Denver. According to the litigation filed against the DJ it has been reported that Mueller slipped his hand under Swift’s dress and grabbed her backside as they posed for a photo-shoot before the concert.
“It was not an accident, it was completely intentional, and I have never been so sure of anything in my life,” Swift said of the incident during a deposition.
It has been reported that Mueller had sued first, claiming that the singer had falsely accused him of the groping incident which resulted in him being fired from his $150,000-per-year job at KYGO-FM radio station.
Swift countersued for assault and battery and now all these charges have become part of the same trial.
Swift’s fans and supporters are hailing her for speaking out against the incident.
Meanwhile Mueller has denied doing anything inappropriate during the brief stage encounter and he saying that Swift’s allegations are all ‘nonsense’.
