With Taylor Swift in court, jury selection begins in groping case

With Taylor Swift in court, jury selection begins in groping case

Jury selection will begin Monday in Denver for the civil suit between Taylor Swift and a former radio DJ, stemming from a 2013 incident in which the pop singer alleges she was groped by the host.

TMZ says Taylor Swift has a sexual assult lawsuit against former DJ, David Mueller.

The Denver Post reported that security removed Mueller from the concert shortly after the meet-and-greet photo session and Swift's manager Frank Bell told KYGO about the alleged incident.

The photo shows David Mueller with his right hand behind the singer, just below her waist, before a 2013 concert.

Mueller later sued Swift, denying anything happened, and is seeking at least $3 million in damages.

Missouri Police Officer Shot And Killed At Traffic Stop
The Missouri State Highway Patrol says they are looking for Ian McCarthy , 39, of Clinton, in connection to the shooting. Michael returned fire, but it's not clear if he hit the suspect, who fled on foot after the crash, the sergeant said.

Swift appeared in court in a white dress and black jacket, even though she and Mueller were not required to attend until the actual trial begins.

Mueller was sacked on June 4th, 2013 after Swift's team gave the photo to the radio station.

As a result, Swift and her attorneys won a big pre-trial victory over Mueller.

Mueller's boss said the DJ told him during an internal investigation that any contact during the photo op was incidental or accidental. Swift in a way she found inappropriate, it was inadvertent as he rushed to get into position for the photograph, which, though inconclusive, is expected to be key evidence at the trial.

Swift at the federal courthouse in downtown Denver will be asked to line up each day for one of the 32 seats reserved for the public in the courtroom or for one of 75 in an overflow room with a closed-circuit video feed of the proceedings.

Mueller also accused his boss, Eddie Haskell, of being the one who had touched the singer inappropriately.

U.S. District Court judge William Martinez will be presiding over the trial at the Alfred A. Arraj courthouse in Denver.

According to the Denver Post, radio host Mueller was invited to a meet-and-greet with Swift during the Denver stop of her Red tour.

Baldridge, meanwhile, has said Swift is upset by Mueller's claim that 'for some reason she might have some incentive to actually fabricate this story'.

While very similar, Roth's Death Wish dodges the label of simply being a remake of the original by changing up some key details. The remake co-stars Vincent D'Onofrio, Dean Norris , Kimberly Elise, and Mike Epps .

Hoping the case serves as "an example to other women who may resist publicly reliving similar outrageous and humiliating acts", Swift has vowed that if she wins the case, she will donate any money she received to "charitable organisations dedicated to protecting women from similar acts of sexual assault and personal disregard". Swift's bodyguard and a photographer who took a picture that Swift says shows the assault occurring will give eyewitness accounts on her behalf.
