Swift was joined in court by her mother Andrea Swift and jotted down notes during the proceeding. Swift's complaint simply says "the image depicted in the photograph of Ms Swift with [Shannon] Melcher and Mueller speaks for itself".

In addition to suing the pop singer, Mr Mueller is taking legal action against the radio promotions director of his former station.

Swift confirmed that they did inform the manager of KYGO management about the supposed incident, but she denied that she demanded for his ousting.

Mueller, who denies the allegation, was sacked from his $150,000 a year job as a morning host at radio station KYGO two days after the alleged incident.

Greg Dent, Taylor Swift's bodyguard will testify about the meeting of Mueller and Swift.

There will be no alternates.

Mueller claims that Swift mistook him for someone else.

They must be present for the rest of the trial.

Swift countersued, alleging sexual assault by Mueller. She says she does not know Mueller and has no incentive to target him or to fabricate a story.

Prospective jurors in a civil trial involving dueling lawsuits between Taylor Swift and an ex-Denver radio disc jockey are being asked whether they are fans of the singer-songwriter or the former host of a country music show. The jury will also considered the singer's countersuit, although Swift is only seeking $1 in damages for the unwanted grab.

Tom Cotton (R-AR) revealed that Bannon and McMaster have "very forceful differences" during NSC meetings. There's now open speculation as to whether Steve Bannon could be the next Trump staffer to be ousted.

However, Swift noted in a deposition that the alleged incident was far from entertaining.

Jury selection began Monday.

No jurors were selected on the first day, but many were dismissed. "Swift's photographer and (her) highly trained security personnel.is nonsense".

David Mueller has sued Swift, saying he lost his job after she falsely accused him of grabbing her backstage before a 2013 concert.

The pop music superstar appeared in a Denver court on Tuesday as a jury was finalized.

"I think that too often we see women who don't have all of the power and influence of Taylor Swift assume that sexual harassment is the price of a paycheck", Farrell said.

The jury is expected to be seated by the afternoon.

Swift and Mueller are both expected to testify in the case, along with Mueller's former boss and members of Swift's entourage.

Swift maintains she was sexually assaulted, but she was trying to keep the matter discreet and quiet. She is suing for just £0.80 in a bid to hold Mueller accountable. He's seeking up to $3 million in damages.

Based on court records, here's a look at the photo and other key elements in the he-said, she-said trial that began Tuesday in federal court in Denver.
