    Taylor Swift sexual assault trial in Denver, August 2017

    "Taylor Swift is heading into a public legal battle against an alleged groper this week as an act of solidarity with other women in and out of the music industry who have been sexually harassed or assaulted, some experts and advocates have speculated.

    The pop music superstar appeared in a Denver court on Tuesday as a jury was finalized.

    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. Swift and Mueller have sued one another over the alleged groping incident."

    Is anyone else here following the case?

    I was pretty disgusted at the fans that waited in line for a seat at the court house yesterday for tickets to the public viewing gallery all smiling and excited. This is very serious and not a pop concert they are attending.

    If someone gropes you, respond immediately with a slap to the face or a kick to the shin, even if it is in front of others.

    Let's not blame the victim here. Any woman who has ever been assaulted in this (or any other way) knows the stunned feeling of shock and repulsion. You can't always think of what to do at that moment. I believe her.

    So vigilante style assault is the proper reaction? Are you saying assaulted people shouldn't get law enforcement involved but just take it into their own hands? I would imagine that more often than not doing that would turn a really bad situation into a worse one... Can you clarify?

    I am not the poster, but I thought the message was to draw immediate attention to what happened in the moment, not to harm the offender, both communicating to others that something happened and to the offender that this was noticed and is not ok. This approach and contacting authorities aren't mutually exclusive to me. I have seen people recommend similar to pregnant women who are touched without consent.

    I felt the same way when I saw that too. The way the dude is standing is not normal . If none of this was happening and I just saw the pic I would have thought he has his hand on her butt not ok

    "Taylor Swift took the stand Thursday morning for the groping case against a Denver DJ.

    She told the jury: 'It was a definite grab. A very long grab.'

    The judge just announced her mother Andrea not feeling well today and has been excused. Taylor's brother Austin was seen arriving to the courthouse with her publicist Tree Paine.

    On Wednesday, Andrea sobbed on the stand as she spoke about the moment she was informed her daughter had been groped, telling court that she knew something was 'horribly wrong' the moment she walked into her dressing room.
    Andrea, 59, said: 'I went into the dressing room and I saw her face. I could see that there was something horribly wrong. She [Swift] said, 'Mom, a guy just grabbed my ass.'

    I agree CARIIS the photo isn't right at all. It's a pity Taylor never filed charges against him who knows how long he may have been doing this. I understand why she didn't though.

    His arm is OBVIOUSLY in the wrong place. He says his hand was 'in the small of her back.' NO WAY. It is way too low for that.

    From the goofy smile on his face it seems rather obvious he was doing a 'prank' grab of the young artists bottom---so he could laugh with his friends. What a pathetic creeper.

    Testimony from today's hearing

    "Taylor also said that Mueller 'did not touch my rib, he did not touch my hand, he grabbed my bare ass.'

    When grilled about how she felt about Mueller losing his job because of the allegations, Taylor countered by saying, 'I am not going to allow your client make me feel like it anyway it's my fault because it isn't.

    She said that she doesn't have any feelings on Mueller as a person, 'I don't know him, but what he did was despicable.'

    Mueller's attorney further grilled Taylor on whether or not she was sure Mueller was the one who grabbed her butt, 'he had a handful of my ass. I know it was him. I didn't need a photograph. I could have picked him out of a line of a thousand people. I know exactly who did this, this what happened. It happened to me. I know it was him.'

    After a little under an hour on the stand, Mueller's attorney had no further questions and Taylor's attorney Douglas Baldridge and no question.

    I give Taylor a lot of kudos.

    I hope her actions give confidence to a lot of other women who stay silent.
