Taylor Swift Praised For Testimony In Groping Case

"It was a definite grab... a very long grab", Swift testified in a Denver federal court.

On Wednesday, Mueller, 55, testified that he was sacked from two previous jobs as well, according to the Denver Post.

Asked if she sought out eyewitnesses to verify the account, the mother said she had no reason to doubt her daughter's word. Bell is a co-defendant.

Women who've been assaulted know all too well how hard it is to speak up and accuse their abusers.

Swift, as captured by a court sketch artist, during the trial.

Swift has labeled the alleged action as a form of sexual assault. "A very long grab", she added in her testimony.

Mueller is suing the pop superstar, saying her claim that he groped her during a meet-and-greet in 2013 is false and caused him to be fired.

She is counter-suing, alleging she was sexually assaulted.

Swift's attorney J. Douglas Baldridge did not cross-examine the pop star.

Speaking about her experience after the alleged groping, Swift said she was stunned and tried to move away from Mueller as far as possible.

Dent said he was a few steps away from Swift at the photo-op and watched everyone who came in and left. She pointed at Mueller and described him as the man who assaulted Taylor. He is seeking at least $3 million.

Swift is expected to testify, along with members of her entourage. Swift testified the photo captured the exact moment she was groped. Asked whether he grabbed Swift's backside, Mueller replied, "No, I did not".

"I'm critical of your client sticking his hand under my skirt and grabbing my ass".

The DJ has admitted that the picture is "weird and awkward" but testified "My hand was at rib-cage level and apparently it went down".

The trial has attracted Swift fans.

"Wednesday's testimony was delayed while the judge held a closed hearing with both sides to discuss unspecified evidence".

Mueller, then a host on the top-rated radio station KYGO, had been invited to meet the star before the show. "I saw his hand under her skirt".

And to prove to you even more why you shouldn't try to undermine TayTay, when McFarland asked her why her skirt was not lifting in the front in the photo, she quickly responded, "Because my ass is in the back of my body".

The last witness called by lawyer Gabriel McFarland on behalf of David Mueller was Mueller's ex-girlfriend, Shannon Melcher. KYGO officials said that Mueller changed his story, and they deemed that he was not being truthful. On Thursday she was joined by more family and associates in the presence of her brother Austin Swift and publicist Tree Paine.
