Taylor Swift Trial: Everything You Need to Know About Groping Case

A 15-page questionnaire released as jury selection began in the dueling lawsuits also asked candidates if they had seen any pictures related to the case - a possible reference to a photo that shows DJ David Mueller with his right hand behind the pop superstar, just below her waist, before a 2013 concert in Denver.

It's unclear when Swift will take the stand.

Mueller says he was falsely accused by the Wildest Dreams singer of putting his hand on her bare backside during a meet and greet at Denver's Pepsi Center. "I've never been so sure of anything in my life".

The Post said Taylor didn't file charges with police at the time and the incident mostly flew under the radar until Mueller filed his lawsuit against the singer in September 2015, spurring Swift's countersuit.

Two days after the incident on June 2, 2013, he was sacked from his $150,000-a-year job following an internal investigation conducted by Lincoln Financial Media.

According to pre-trial legal documents obtained by CNN, Mueller launched a law suit in 2015 claiming Swift and her co-defendents (including her mother), falsely accused him of improperly touching the star, and is now seeking £2.3 million in damages. For his part, Mueller has admitted that he had touched Swift during the encounter, but insists that it was accidental.

Taylor Swift will not be the only person testifying in the courts as she has asked some witnesses, and friends, to testify on her behalf in the trial.

Details of how a Denver DJ allegedly groped Taylor Swift are set to be aired in court over the next nine days, as her long-running legal battle over the 2013 sexual assault reaches its conclusion.

According to the Denver Post, radio host Mueller was invited to a meet-and-greet with Swift during the Denver stop of her Red tour.

Both parties are expected to testify in the 9-day civil trial and will be in court each day, following jury selection. After Mueller's employer was informed of Swift's accusation, he was terminated from his job. (Mueller's team argues that the DJ was simply trying to jump into the frame). He and his girlfriend were escorted out of the arena and a member of Swift's team called his boss. The suit says Mueller complimented Swift on her "patience and sincerity with her fans" as they met. "Mueller did not merely brush his hand against Ms".

A lot of people have taken to calling this case the Taylor Swift "butt grabbing trial", for some reason distinguishing the type of sexual assault as if you need to know anything beyond the fact that it's sexual assault. Swift says she will donate any money she receives to charities.

Mueller denied inappropriately touching Swift and said he told the guard: "Please call the police".

Mueller's lawyer, Gabriel McFarland, has argued in previous hearings that he could be the victim of mistaken identity.

The trial is expected to last about two weeks.
