Swift claims Mueller grabbed her on the buttock during a meet-and-greet photo session at the show.

He claims he was sacked after Swift falsely accused him of grabbing her and he is seeking up to $3 million in damages.

Jury selection is to start on Monday.

It seems unlikely that either side in the case is in the mood to settle, meaning the jury trial considering both sides' lawsuits should go ahead this week, and could last for two weeks. Swift might appear. The presiding judge, William J. Martínez, has warned anyone who hopes to attend to refrain from wearing clothing "bearing the name or likeness of any of the parties". Swift in a way she found inappropriate, it was inadvertent as he rushed to get into position for the photograph, which, though inconclusive, is expected to be key evidence at the trial.

The questionnaire also asks potential jurors if they listen to KYGO, the country music station where Mueller used to work.

Swift countersued, alleging sexual battery by Mueller. They posed for a photo and left.

Ms. Swift's pretrial deposition provided a preview of her testimony about the events at Pepsi Center, the arena in Denver not far from the courthouse.

The police were not called because of Swift's wish to keep the situation "discreet and quiet and confidential", according to her attorney Douglas Baldridge.

Mueller's attorney, Gabriel McFarland, argues that Mueller may have been misidentified after someone else touched Swift.

Swift is seeking a verdict that awards her $1, while holding Mueller responsible and "serving as an example to other women who may resist publicly reliving similar outrageous and humiliating acts", her lawsuit says.

According to the Independent, Taylor Swift is expected to make an appearance in the courts to openly testify against David Mueller. It's inconclusive whether he's touching her.

On Monday, jury selection will take place for the trial that could last up to nine days, per Business Insider.

Entertainment news outlet TMZ obtained and published the photo, which has since been sealed by the court.

Immediately after the meet-and-greet, Swift says, she confirmed the assault with a photographer and security staff, who then confronted Mueller. Swift said that she told her tour manager and security staff that she had been groped. "I didn't do anything". "It was completely intentional, I've never been so sure of anything in my life". Mueller was sacked the day after the conversation. Here she is seen with him and another DJ Shannon Melcher at the shoot where the alleged incident occurred. Swift's team contacted KYGO officials to describe her allegations.
