Taylor Swift's trial lawyer accuses Denver DJ of seeking money, fame

Taylor Swift in court over groping case

One of the most pointed moments of the cross-examination came after Mueller described an anecdote that Haskell, his boss, had told him about grabbing Swift's butt as "like a fishing tale.he tended to brag, and he would tell silly stories".

A report from People explains the goings-on of the trial, during which Swift's mother could be seen getting emotional and tearing up over details of the case.

That's a possible reference to a photo showing David Mueller with his hand behind the popstar, just below her waist, before a 2013 concert in Denver.

Mueller says his hand was touching Swift's skirt after he put his arm around her and their arms got crossed.

"What's wrong with this picture?" According to Mueller, Swift's accusations are untrue and she made them up in effort to get him fired from his job.

He'll be back on the stand today.

Earlier Wednesday, court proceedings were delayed by a closed hearing that lasted almost two hours. The notes stated that KYGO program director at Lincoln Financial Media, John Dimick, was prepared to terminate both Mueller and his morning show co-host, Ryan "Ryno" Kliesch, due to insubordination.

The litigation centers on her allegations that Mueller slipped his hand under her dress and grabbed her bare buttocks as the two posed during a meet-and-greet session before a June 2013 concert in Denver. After Swift came forward about the incident, Mueller was sacked from his job at the country music station, despite coming forward with his own version of events.

After the photo was taken, Mueller testified that Swift shook his hand and that he and Melcher exited the photo booth room and moved along to other areas at the venue.

Venezuelan Leader Defiant as US Imposes Sanctions on Him
U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, called the vote a "sham election" that brought Venezuela "another step toward dictatorship".

In a deposition a year ago, Swift said, "He reached up under my skirt and grabbed my ass right when I was having to pose for the photo, and it felt intentional that that would be the time he would choose to do it". "You'd like to make the kind of money he does", Baldridge asked Mueller, who has claimed his show is family-friend.

He also claimed that he recorded the meeting during which he was let go, but said that the audio was destroyed when he accidentally spilled coffee on his computer.

Mueller is seeking up to $3 million in damages.

Swift is countersuing, claiming sexual assault.

The case is being heard in federal court because Swift and Mueller live in different states - Swift in Nashville, Tennessee, Mueller in Colorado - and damages at stake exceed $75,000.

Instead, he said, Swift seemed to be paying attention to his girlfriend.

Swift's lawyers called the photo taken at the event "damning" proof that Mueller groped her.

Swift countersued, alleging sexual battery by Mueller. "Swift, and will serve as an example to other women who may resist publicly reliving similar outrageous and humiliating acts", her countersuit reads.

Swift is set to testify during the proceedings.
