Taylor Swift is expected to testify in court

Taylor Swift is expected to testify in court

Taylor Swift's trial is set for this week in Denver.

In her deposition previous year, Swift described the incident in detail, explaining how in 2013 the Denver disc jockey allegedly reached his hand up her skirt and groped her backstage at her concert at the Pepsi Centre in Denver.

Mueller, who was sacked from his radio gig following Swift's allegations, insists her story is false.

The case David Mueller filed back in 2015 stated that he had lost his income because of Taylor Swift's claims and that she and her mother bullied his former employers into firing him.

Swift is counter-suing Mueller for only $1 and a ruling that holds him responsible.

TMZ says Taylor Swift has a sexual assult lawsuit against former DJ, David Mueller.

Swift appeared in court in a white dress and black jacket, even though she and Mueller were not required to attend until the actual trial begins.

He is seeking at least $3 million in damages.

Swift is countersuing, claiming sexual assault.

Could Taylor Swift lose her case? Even that beef with Perry has been pretty one-sided; while Perry embarked on a press tour for her new album and dished on some of the drama, Swift mostly made her moves in silence, towering over the competition.

The nine-day hearing, at Denver's Alfred A. Arraj courthouse, will be presided over by US District Judge William Martinez.

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

Mueller says he was verbally abused and kicked out of the venue by her security. It's not often you see a person of Swift's stature in the courtroom, let alone testifying, so the whole thing is being turned into quite a disturbing spectacle.

She is asking that attorney's fees and costs be paid for by Mueller along with compensatory damages to be proven at trial.

Mueller has maintained that he never inappropriately touched Swift and in the original lawsuit claims that following the photo, a co-worker, Eddie Haskell, "excitedly told him about his experience meeting Ms.Swift earlier that night", including how he "described and demonstrated how he had put his arms around her, hands on her bottom".

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

Mueller denied the allegation and said he asked that they call the police.

Immediately after the meet-and-greet, Swift says, she confirmed the assault with a photographer and security staff, who then confronted Mueller.

Members of the public can line up to watch proceedings from an overflow room in the courthouse, but so far there hasn't been a big turnout.
