Nashville, TN, United States (4E) – Taylor Swift was summoned in Nashville for her civic obligation as it has been announced that she has been dismissed from jury duty due to the ongoing sexual assault case she is involved in.
Accordingly, Swift was originally called on to be a prospective juror for a trial. However, being in a legal case similar to the supposed case she was to be a juror, it was decided that she should be dismissed.
An insider shared, “Taylor Swift was part of the panel of prospective jurors on a case with charges of aggravated kidnapping, aggravated rape and aggravated domestic assault. Therefore, the judge excused Ms. Swift because of her pending sexual assault case against Mr. Mueller.”
David Mueller is a Colorado DJ who filed a lawsuit against Swift. He said in his lawsuit that he was fired from his job at 98.5 KYGO over false allegations that he grabbed Swift’s behind while taking a photo. Accordingly, the incident took place on June 2, 2013, minutes before she performed at Denver’s Pepsi Center. Mueller was a former host of 98.5 KYGO’s “Ryno and Jackson” morning show and was invited to a meet and greet backstage.
Swift then filed a counterclaim saying that she is surprised, upset, offended, and alarmed by the lawsuit. Mueller said in his lawsuit that Swift mistakenly thought that it was him who grabbed her behind. However, in her counterclaim, she said that she knows that Mueller really did groper her.
As pert court records, the counterclaim will demonstrated that Mueller was the only one who touched Swift’s behind. The documents added, “Mueller did not merely brush his hand against Ms. Swift while posing for the photograph. He lifted her skirt and groped her.”
Swift is now demanding a jury trial and if she wins, the money she gets will go to charitable organizations dedicated to protecting women from sexual assault and personal disregard.
