Ex-DJ suing Taylor Swift had been fired from radio jobs before

Ex-DJ suing Taylor Swift had been fired from radio jobs before

The trial of a lawsuit between Swift and David Mueller, a former radio host she accuses of groping her, begins Monday, Aug. 7, 2017, in U.S. District Court in Denver.

Mueller, 55, has denied her allegations and also says they led to him losing his job.

To get you up to speed, Swift has alleged that Mueller reached under her skirt and grabbed her backside as they posed together for a pre-show meet-and-greet photograph during the Denver stop of her Red Tour. He says Mueller was wrong Tuesday when he said that Baldridge's claim that he was seeking 15 times the amount of his salary was incorrect.

Mueller was sacked from his job at a country music station after Taylor's team told his boss that Mueller grabbed her buttock during a meet-and-greet before a 2013 Swift concert in Denver. Swift, her mother and attorneys are back in court today.

Mueller claims he did not touch Swift's posterior, instead was casually "jostling" with the star before the photo shoot and his arm may have grazed her "rib-cage area".

Though several fans showed up for the trial, public interest in watching it at the downtown Denver courthouse is lower than expected, according to the Denver Post, which said that public seats to view the trial in an overflow room were handed over to the media.

"If you look at that photograph, his hand is not underneath Miss Swift's skirt, and her skirt is not rumpled in any fashion", Mr McFarland said, noting that no-one on Swift's concert team saw anything amiss. "Swift, and will serve as an example to other women who may resist publicly reliving similar outrageous and humiliating acts", her countersuit reads. Swift raised her chin a little, looking exasperated. Despite donating $250,000 to Kesha in 2016 for her own sexual assault legal battles, the "Tik-Tok" singer has been silent so far about Swift's case.

Jury selection is expected to last through Tuesday.

David Mueller was sacked from two jobs prior to his termination by KYGO over an allegation that he groped Taylor Swift before a Denver concert, he testified Wednesday under questioning by Swift's lawyer.

"Let's be clear about something from the onset - inappropriate touching is offensive, it's wrong and should never be tolerated", Mueller's lawyer, Gabriel McFarland, told jurors.

Swift's lawyer argued the entertainer also had no impact on Mueller's career stalling, saying the DJ had only sent packets containing his headshot, biography and audio samples to the top 20 radio markets following his dismissal from KYGO.

She is "not trying to bankrupt this man", Swift's attorney said.

A member of Swift's staff called Mueller's boss at a country music radio station and asked that the station "take appropriate action".

A short time later, Mueller was approached by a security guard who accused him of inappropriately grabbing Swift, which he denied. He's seeking $3 million, saying the allegation cost him his job and reputation.
