Taylor Swift's Groping Case: Everything You Need To Know

Taylor Swift's trial against radio show host David Mueller for alleged sexual assault made some progress on the second day in court as the jury was selected, opening statements were made, and witnesses began taking the stand.

The lawsuit centers around her claim that former radio disc jockey - David "Jackson" Mueller - groped her during a 2013 fan meet-and-greet before a show.

The photo was obtained by TMZ then sealed by a judge earlier in the case.

On June 2, 2013, when Swift was 23, she was carrying out a meet-and-greet with fans at her show in Denver, Colorado.

Mueller and Swift are suing each other.

However, they weren't even looking at each other in court on Monday. She wore bright red lipstick and had her light brown hair pulled back in a bun with full bangs.

Swift, her mother and Bell are expected to testify.

In 2015, he filed a lawsuit claiming that Swift's allegations had cost him his job and damaged his professional reputation. She described Swift's profile as a sexual assault victim, and Mueller's as a man with a powerful job.

The jury questionnaire also said anyone who is uncomfortable with discussing any instances of inappropriate touching can speak to the judge in private.

Jury selection began on Monday and continued into Tuesday. The eight-member panel will be chosen from a pool of 60 candidates, court spokesman Jeff Colwell said.

Potential jurors were asked whether they or relatives had ever been inappropriately touched or wrongfully accused of groping someone; and whether they were fans of Swift. The potential juror answered, "She seems petty and spiteful".

Baldridge removed one prospect for purportedly pre-judging the case based on a photo at the center of the dispute.

Swift and Mueller aren't required to be in court for jury selection, which is expected to end Tuesday.

In addition to suing the pop singer, Mr Mueller is taking legal action against the radio promotions director of his former station.

David Mueller accuses the artist's team of calling his boss to require his dismissal without hearing his side of the story. They posed for a photo and left.

The singer, who alleges he lifted her skirt and fondled her buttocks during the photo op, has said she knew who had assaulted her.

Mueller says he told the security staff: "Please call the police".

According to Swift, the DJ reached under her dress and grabbed her bottom.

Swift never went to the police. She says she wants to hold Mueller accountable and is seeking $1.
