Jury Selection and Opening Statements for the Taylor Swift Trial

August 8, 2017

Completion of juror selection and opening statements kick off the Taylor Swift trial in Denver.  According to CNN, the civil lawsuit centers on Swift's allegation that David Mueller, known professionally as "Jackson," inappropriately touched her during a June 2013 meet-and-greet at Denver's Pepsi Center arena.  Swift, who was 23 at the time of the incident, countersued Mueller, accusing him of "reaching under her dress and grabbing her bottom" as they posed for a photo. Swift, her mother and Bell are expected to testify in court.
