She claims the assault occurred when she posed for a picture with Mueller and his girlfriend at the time.

(4) McFarland argued there isn't anything visibly inappropriate happening in the photo of Swift and Mueller.

Swift counter-sued Mueller in October 2015 and demanded a jury for the trial.

Swift's response succinctly articulates a truth that shouldn't need saying: When a man assaults a woman, any consequences he faces are a result of his own actions.

Taylor Swift has taken to the witness stand for the first time in her lawsuit against a radio host who she alleges groped her at a meet-and-greet in 2013.

"It was intentional", she told the court in Denver, Colorado.

Taking the stand on Wednesday, Bell said he asked the broadcaster to investigate the encounter but had not requested that Mueller be fired. But when shown the photo in question, Call said, Mueller responded: "Well, if it did happen, it was accidental".

While Taylor's mum Andrea sobbed on the stand as she gave her testimony, Taylor remained calm and had no issue with cutting David Mueller's lawyer down to size over and over again.

Mueller has sued Swift, claiming he was falsely accused and lost his job.

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.

Swift also rejected the suggestion that she had misidentified Mueller, saying: "I'm not going to allow you or your client to say I am to blame".

Seated at her legal team's table in a federal courtroom, Swift chuckled when Dent testified that, after the photo was taken, he suspected that KYGO-FM host David Mueller would be at the bar of the arena - and another guard found him there.

Swift's reply: "Your client could have taken a normal photo with me".

The 27-year-old pop star is countersuing the DJ. Lena Dunham praised her "fierce" testimony.

She was also asked why, in the photo that shows her posing with Mueller, the front of her skirt is not ruffled. "He sexually assaulted her, this guy, who is present here".

(7) McFarland questioned why no one witnessed Mueller grabbing Swift's backside. He said he and the singer were trying to reach around one another and "our hands touched and our arms touched" during a photo opportunity he estimated lasted no more than 40 seconds. She testified that "this was something I did not want known".

'Resolution of this Counterclaim will demonstrate that Mueller alone was the perpetrator of the humiliating and wrongful conduct targeted against Ms.

Taylor Swift's former bodyguard told how he witnessed the pop star's skirt being flipped up before she was then groped by a DJ as he gave evidence in a U.S. courtroom Friday.

Dent, meanwhile, says while he knew what happened, he was looking at Swift for cues about what she wanted him to do. Swift countersued Mueller a month later, accusing him of assault and battery.

"I felt him grab on to my ass cheek under my skirt".
