A U.S. judge on Friday dismissed claims that pop superstar Taylor Swift got a radio DJ fired, but court proceedings will continue to consider the singer's allegations that he sexually assaulted her. DavidMueller has accused Swift of slandering him to his radio station, alleging her complaint led to his unfair dismissal. Mueller is seeking up to $3 million worth of damages as compensation for his ruined career.
A judge on Friday threw out Mueller's case against Swift saying that the pop star could not be held liable because Mueller failed to prove that she personally set out to have him fired. According to reports, the jury was sent home this weekend before the judge will decide on the counterclaim brought by Swift's attorney to exclude her from Mueller's lawsuit.
The American singer-songwriter Taylor Swift has successfully won a legal victory in the lawsuit case against a former radio DJ who allegedly claims sexually assaulted her.
Swift, known for baring her soul and her grudges in her music, by all accounts was the undisputed star witness of her own trial, giving an unflinching account of the incident in question on Thursday.
"Your client grabbed my ass", she told Mueller's lawyer, Gabriel McFarland. He stayed latched on to my bare a** cheek as I moved away from him.
"When he went to put his arm behind her, I saw her skirt go up and his hand went under there", Greg Dent said.
This claim is for a symbolic $1, with Taylor Swift stating that she wants the opportunity to stand up and be the voice for other women, and it will still be considered by the jury.
The photo, repeatedly displayed in court, shows Swift flanked by Mueller and Melcher, all three smiling for the camera.
