Testimony ends after emotional day in Swift groping case

Taylor Swift Testifies In Court Over DJ Who Allegedly Touched Her Inappropriately

McFarland asked Call to describe his meeting with Mueller the day after the concert to discuss the incident.

The BuzzFeed reporter Claudia Rosenbaum tweeted: "Mueller's attorney said, 'You could have taken a break, ' and Taylor Swift responded: 'And your client could have taken a normal photo with me'".

According to the 27-year-old recording artist, Mueller slipped his hand under her dress and grabbed her as the two posed, along with Mueller's girlfriend, during the picture-taking session. Dressed and styled conservatively for the occasion, Swift surprised observers with her steely nerve as she related the story to the jury. Vogue reports the lawyer then asked Swift if she was critical of Dent for not preventing the alleged incident.

Kliesch testified that Haskell had separately talked to him after their VIP meet-and-greet with Swift.

Swift's reply: "I don't feel anything about Mr. Mueller".

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.

"Mueller testified Tuesday that he may have touched the pop superstar's ribs with a closed hand as he tried to jump into a photo with her but insisted he did not touch her backside as she claims". Swift would have none of it, and said, "No, I am critical of your client for sticking his hand under my skirt and grabbing my bare ass".

A former bodyguard for Taylor Swift has said he saw a DJ she accuses of groping her reach under the singer's skirt during a 2013 pre-concert meet and greet photo session. Tay-tay is suing radio DJ David Mueller for allegedly copping a feel in 2013.

"I really just dismissed a lot of things that Eddie said because, quite honestly, I didn't believe a lot of things that Eddie said", Kliesch testified.

Mueller claims his knuckles may have touched her ribs, well above where his arm is shown. According to those who showed up to the public trial in support of Swift, the incomparably successful singer-songwriter stood her ground and never faltered.

"He stayed attached to my bare ass-cheek as I lurched away from him", she told a federal court trial today. Swift, who is only seeking £0.80 in damages, counter-sued for assault and battery.

Swift testified that after she was grabbed she "got as far away from him as I possibly could". "I am being blamed for the unfortunate events of his life that are a product of his decisions, not mine", she said. Swift wasn't having any of this victim blaming and said, "I didn't have a reaction to a unusual person I didn't know losing his job. that was a product of his decisions, not mine".

Swift told his employer, the Denver radio station KYGO, and the radio station fired Mueller after investigating her claim.

Wednesday's testimony highlighted an initial attempt to keep the encounter in Denver out of the spotlight.
