After allegedly assaulting Taylor Swift at a meet-and-greet back in 2013, Colorado radio DJ David Mueller was fired from his job at Denver-based radio station KYGO. Feeling he was being mistreated for the claims made by the singer, Mueller sued the international popstar for slander three years later in 2016, prompting Swift to countersue.
According to PEOPLE, the judge assigned to the case dismissed Mueller’s slander claims because the 1-year statute of limitations had long since run out. However, despite the small win for Swift and her team, that did not stop the judge from sending the case against her to trial as reported by TMZ.
The incident in question as stated in Swift’s legal filings alleges Mueller and his girlfriend participated in a meet-and-greet in which the host “intentionally reached under her skirt, and groped with his hand an intimate part of her body in an inappropriate manner, against her will, and without her permission.”
Furthermore, Swift states that she hopes her legal suit to “serve as an example to other women who may resist publicly reliving similar outrageous and humiliating acts.”
So what do you think? Do you think the case should still go to trial? Let us know in the comments!
