Taylor Swift will not be the only person testifying in the courts as she has asked some witnesses, and friends, to testify on her behalf in the trial.
But now she's fighting a real battle.
Jury selection began Monday in the civil trial involving musician TaylorSwift and a former KYGO DJ who is accused of groping her.
- Greg Dent, Swift's bodyguard, may be called to testify about what he saw during the encounter.
In her deposition past year, Swift described the incident in detail, explaining how in 2013 the Denver disc jockey allegedly reached his hand up her skirt and groped her backstage at her concert at the Pepsi Centre in Denver.
Swift counter-sued with claims he assaulted her.
"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 ass cheek and no matter how much I scooted over it was still there", Swift explained. "It was completely intentional".
Soon after, Swift countersuedMueller and alleged that she was sexually assaulted. According to USA Today, Mueller's attorney will be raising the question of mistaken identity as well as claiming that Swift only filed a lawsuit when David Mueller filed on in 2015. He claims that a complaint from Swift's security team about the alleged grope directly led to him being fired.
Opening statements in the case are expected sometime Tuesday, and that's when both Swift and Mueller will both have to be present.
Mueller also accused his boss, Eddie Haskell, of being the one who had touched the singer inappropriately. "Swift", read his claim. Swift's photographer and Ms. "He lifted her skirt and groped her".
"Mueller has to prove...that he was terminated wrongfully because of false claims made against him by Swift and people representing Swift". The recording was all set to be a crucial part of the legal debate, but Mueller ended up destroying or throwing away the four electronic devices it was allegedly stored on. David Mueller's attorney has confirmed that Mueller will also be testifying in the trial.
Members of the public can line up to watch proceedings from an overflow room in the courthouse, but so far there hasn't been a big turnout. 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.
Baldridge, meanwhile, has saidSwift is upset by Mueller's claim that 'for some reason she might have some incentive to actually fabricate this story'.
Swift plans to donate any winnings from the trial to a charity that fights against, and protects women from, sexual assault.
This one is pretty straightforward, but the whole thing is expected be done in just over a week.
