Taylor Swift Files for a Lawsuit Against the DJ that Groped Her
Taylor Swift will finally be able to meet in court the DJ that groped her during a meet and greet.
The singer will face DJ David “Jackson” Mueller in a court of law and hopefully find justice in front of the inappropriate man.
According to U.S. District Court for the District of Colorado documents, the settled court date is August 7, 2017.
“This case is set for a nine-day jury trial commencing at 8:30 a.m., Monday, August 7, 2017, to conclude on Thursday, August 17, 2017,” state the legal papers. “The parties are requested to be present for the entirety of the trial.”
By the time the trial takes place it will have been over four years since Swift accused the DJ of groping her during a June 2013 meet and greet event.
There is also a picture that shows the two posing together, Taylor smiling, still unaware of the man’s intention, while the DJ had his hand ready, behind the singer’s butt.
The said photo however has been sealed from the public by the Colorado judge.
“It is all but assured that the photograph will be shared for scandalous and prurient interests — reasons that have nothing to do with the public’s interest in the Court’s decision making,” stated Swift’s attorneys in the court papers.
Aside from the photo, no other documents have been made private.
In September 2015, the DJ filed for a lawsuit accusing Taylor Swift of defamation, claiming she lied about him touching her inappropriately.
In October of the same year, the pop star filed a counter-suit, accusing the man of assault and battery.
“Right as the moment came for us to pose for the photo, he took his hand and put it up my dress and grabbed onto my a** cheek and no matter how much I scooted over it was still there,” read Swift’s declaration. “It was completely intentional, I’ve never been so sure of anything in my life.”
She went on, describing how the incident made her feel “frantic,” distressed” and “violated.”
