Singer Taylor Swift faces her alleged groper in court

But, she said, it was impossible for anyone to see if Mueller's hand was beneath her skirt and on her buttock because they had their backs to a wall. "I don't know him", Swift replied. He sued her in 2015 and is seeking $3 million damages. There were no recording devices permitted into the courtroom, so a sketch artist created a rendering of the occasion.

Taylor Swift has told a court that her alleged assault by DJ David Mueller was "despicable and horrifying".

Which leads us to Taylor Swift.

If you're unfamiliar with the case, here's a brief overview: According to Swift, Mueller allegedly reached under her skirt and grabbed her ass when the two were taking a photo together during a meet-and-greet on her Red Tour in 2013.

(9) The defense asked if Swift is open to the possibility it wasn't Mueller who supposedly grabbed her.

Dent and Simbeck are listed as possible witnesses in the Denver trial.

Yesterday marked day four of the trial, and Swift took the stand for a cross examination from Mueller's lawyer. She said that she didn't notice anything odd occur as they posed for the camera.

The trial centres on a photograph in which Taylor, the DJ and his then-girlfriend, Shannon Melcher, are seen smiling together backstage at the Pepsi Center.

Social media was also active during the court proceedings, with a majority positive reaction to the way Taylor Swift acquitted herself during her testimony and under cross-examination.

"She's trying to tell people out there that you can say no when someone puts their hand on you", added Swift's counsel.

He said his hand was at rib-cage level and "apparently it went down".

Next up was Mueller's longtime friend and radio co-host, Ryan Kliesch, who testified he never saw him treat a woman poorly. He started testifying Tuesday and was being questioned Wednesday by Swift's attorney Douglas Baldridge about his claim that Swift falsely accused him of groping her before a 2013 concert.

Mueller filed a lawsuit seeking nearly $3 million in lost and future wages because of "slander" from members of the Swift camp, while Swift has counter-sued for the alleged sexual assault.

"He sexually assaulted my daughter", claimed Andrea Swift in court, pointing her finger at the broadcaster.

Swift was 23 at the time.

Mueller's lawyer Gabriel McFarland repeatedly pressed Dent why he didn't step in.

Mueller is a former radio show host.

Looking at the photo, McFarland asked Swift why the front of her skirt did not appear to be lifted.

Though Swift never sought legal action against Mueller, her team did immediately take her complaint to KYGO.

Swift is counter-suing Mueller for a symbolic $1 (77p) in compensation, and says she wants it to serve as an example to women who have been assaulted. "Andrea recalled what Taylor told her, "'Mom, a guy just grabbed my ass at the meet-and-greet".

Swift countersued Mueller, claiming sexual assault.

She said she didn't report the incident at first, because there were many other fans waiting to meet her and she didn't want to ruin their night.

Swift is expected to testify.
