Taylor Swift expected to testify in photo grope case

Celebrity Breakups

Former radio host David Mueller, 55, was in court and arrived with his lawyer Gabriel McFarland. But the prospect of jury selection did not draw many spectators on Monday. Here she is seen with him and another DJ Shannon Melcher at the shoot where the alleged incident occurred. "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.

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. The photo was eventually leaked to TMZ and shows Mueller and his girlfriend standing on either side of Swift, with the DJ's hand placed behind the singer, just under her waist.

Two days after the incident on June 2, 2013, he was sacked from his $150,000-a-year job following an internal investigation conducted by Lincoln Financial Media.

In a July 2016 deposition, Swift specified that Mueller had reached under her skirt and grabbed onto her "ass cheek". "And no matter how much I scooted over, it was still there".

Swift is seeking a verdict that awards her $1, while holding Mueller responsible and "serving as an example to other women who may resist publicly reliving similar outrageous and humiliating acts", her lawsuit says.

Opposition leader freed from Venezuela jail and placed under house arrest
Of the 32 cabinet posts in the Maduro government, 12 are held by military men, 10 of them active-duty and two retired. It remains to be seen whether Maduro will have Ortega arrested and on what charges.

The questionnaire also asks potential jurors if they listen to KYGO, the country music station where Mueller used to work.

Refusing to let Mueller make these claims unchecked, Swift brought forth a counter suit less than a month later and called into question both Mueller's character and his version of events from that evening.

Swift and her mother will personally testify at Denver hearing.

She added: 'It was completely intentional, and I have never been so sure of anything in my life'.

Opening statements in the case are expected sometime Tuesday, and that's when both Swift and Mueller will both have to be present.

France Labels Terrorist Recent Incident in Eiffel Tower
France has been on high alert since a series of terrorist attacks in 2015 and 2016 in which more than 230 people died. When arrested on Saturday night, the man was reportedly wearing the colors of the Paris Saint-Germain soccer team.

Swift has countersued, claiming assault and battery for "offensive and harmful physical contact".

Taylor Swift is in federal court in Denver for the start of jury selection in her lawsuit against Denver disc jockey David Mueller involving a groping allegation.

The police were not called because of Swift's wish to keep the situation "discreet and quiet and confidential", according to her attorney Douglas Baldridge. Mueller's attorney is arguing that someone besides Mueller groped Swift, and his client will be testifying on his own behalf.

A lot of people have taken to calling this case the Taylor Swift "butt grabbing trial", for some reason distinguishing the type of sexual assault as if you need to know anything beyond the fact that it's sexual assault.
