Taylor Swift's Courtroom Testimony Is A Lesson In Standing Up For Yourself

Taylor Swift shaken and humiliated by assault, mom tells trial

Swift was called as a witness by the attorney representing Mueller. I don't need you to grill me about the tiny details of this photograph.

As Taylor Swift faces off in court against a former Denver deejay whom she claims assaulted her at a meet-and-greet in 2013, Nelly Furtado is speaking out about her own experiences with "radio staff" who she alleges "attempt to cross lines". She continued: "What Mr Mueller did, like I said, was very intentional and the location was very intentional, and it happened very quickly".

Mueller's lawyer also tried to insinuate that Swift unnecessarily cost his client his job. Coomer called it a lie.

Taylor also explained why her bodyguard at the time, Greg Dent, did not see the alleged assault.

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

Social media was also active during the court proceedings, with a majority positive reaction to the way Taylor Swift acquitted herself during her testimony and under cross-examination.

The pop superstar testified for about an hour on Thursday, sometimes using unflinching language in giving her account of what happened.

Kenyan president urges people to vote peacefully
He managed to rise to prime minister after the 2007 elections but that post has since been abolished. If neither candidate secures more than 50 per cent of the vote then there will be a second round.

When pressed if she thought Mueller got what he deserved when he was sacked, Taylor said: "I don't feel anything about Mr. Mueller".

Frank Bell, the Grammy Award-winning chart-topper's radio liason, backed up Swift's version of events, what she said to him immediately after the photo session.

Asked if he grabbed her backside, he replied: "No, I did not".

Swift adamantly countered that claim in court.

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".

He testified his hand was touching her skirt after he put his arm around her and their arms got crossed. She insisted that, contrary to Mueller's assertion that he may have just grazed her ribs with his elbow, his hand was indeed under her skirt.

Pop star Taylor Swift has insisted Denver DJ David Mueller grabbed her bare backside and held on for a long time, during a whirlwind hour of testimony in a USA federal court.

Jury selection begins in the case of Taylor Swift versus the DJ
The case has been approved for trial despite the fact that it has been four years since the alleged sexual assault. Swift's counter lawsuit claims one count of assault and one count of battery, according to the documents .

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

"I did not want every interview from now on to have to make her include what happened to her".

Melchor testified Mueller was devastated by the accusation.

"He stayed attached to my bare ass-cheek as I lurched away from him", the pop star said in federal court in the city during a trial over the claim.

Mueller denies groping Swift and sued her and her team for causing him to be fired for his job.

She testified assertively that the DJ lifted her skirt and grabbed her bare a** cheek intentionally.

His testimony came a day after Ms Swift took the stand to describe the incident, calling it a "definite grab".

"I was always of the opinion she was too fan-friendly", Dent said.
