Taylor Swift says she’s standing up for all women who are subjected to groping and sexual advances by men. A federal trial is underway in Denver, Colorado, for a $3 million lawsuit filed by a DJ against Swift after he was fired for allegedly groping Swift backstage before a concert. The jury will also considered the singer’s countersuit, although Swift is only seeking $1 in damages for the unwanted grab.
David Mueller, a host on a Denver country radio show, was posing for a photo with Swift and his girlfriend at meet-and-greet event ahead of a Swift show on June 2, 2013, when the alleged groping happened. The photo will be a key piece of evidence at the trial. He claims he never grabbed Swift’s rear and what the image discloses is a matter of debate.
Mueller is suing for the wages lost after he was fired, a dismissal he blames on a call from Swift’s mother to his boss. Swift filed a countersuit against Mueller only after he opened the legal battle.
