Taylor Swift wants case to serve as example to other assault victims

Taylor Swift wants case to serve as example to other assault victims”

Greg Dent, the latest witness in the hearing over lawsuits between Swift and former DJ David Mueller, said in his testimony: "I saw his hand under her skirt".

"What Mr. Mueller did was very intentional", the pop singer told the court while answering questions from Mueller's attorney, Gabriel McFarland, according to CNN.

Ms Swift complained to KYGO and the station fired Mr Mueller two days later. Coomer called it a lie.

The Swift vs. Mueller trial was held at the Alfred A. Arraj Courthouse in Denver, where Taylor was accompanied in the proceedings by her mother Andrea. Mueller claims Swift's team is the reason why he lost his job.

Mueller was sacked two days after the June meet and greet.

The pop superstar testified for about an hour on Thursday, sometimes using unflinching language in giving her account of what happened. "As a parent it made me question why I taught her to be so polite in that moment".

Baldridge did get Mueller to concede that various supervisors with KYGO and its parent firm had discussed the possibility of letting him go even before the encounter with Swift.

Swift said that despite all the talk of the incident being merely "jostling" or "rib-touching", she's pointed out that she's experienced plenty of awkward jostling in her career and "this was not jostling". Lena Dunham praised her "fierce" testimony.

He and others at the station conducted their own investigation, which included the "damning" photograph of Swift and Mueller, Frank Bell's description of the alleged groping, and an interview with Mueller. He grabbed my bare ass.

"He sexually assaulted her", she said.

Taylor Swift says a former radio DJ grabbed her behind underneath her skirt, not above it, during a 2013 pre-concert meet-and-greet photo session in Denver.

"As they were posing for the photo, I saw her fall into the female, she had an uncomfortable look on her face", Simbeck said.

Mueller sued Swift in 2015, claiming that her accusation got him fired from KYGO.

Swift counter-sued for assault and battery, asking for damages of $1. It was intentional. He stayed latched on to my bare ass cheek.

Despite being stunned, Swift said she did not say anything to Mueller and did not put a halt the meet-and-greets after Mueller left because she did not want to disappoint a few dozen people waiting in line for their turns for photos with her. According to CNN Swift added, "This is what happened", she testified.

"It was a definite grab". A CNN correspondent said it was "Incredibly hard, even for an outsider like me, to watch what happened as these two young men that had such promising futures, star football players, very good students, literally watched as they believed their lives fell apart". "It happened to me, I know it was him".

He originally sued in state court in Colorado, but Swift's attorneys moved to have the matter transferred to federal court, which is allowed if a party lives out of state.

Taylor Swift is now in the midst of a sexual assault trial against former radio host David Mueller-and as uncomfortable as the topic may be, the singer's testimony offers a very necessary reminder for everyone.
