#Taylor Swift is due to make an appearance in court as she testifies against a former DJ who she claims groped her back in 2013. The case has been approved for trial despite the fact that it has been four years since the alleged sexual assault. Both legal teams have confirmed that Swift and Mueller will be testifying in court alongside other witnesses of the day in question.

The case had been brought to trial

According to CNN, Taylor Swift has filed a lawsuit against a former DJ by the name of #David Mueller claiming that he sexually assaulted her back in 2013. Swift brought these claims to the courts and stated that Mueller touched her inappropriate when the pair were taking a photograph backstage at one of the singer's concerts.

According to a report by #Usa Today, despite the fact that Swift did not call the police until several years after the incident the case has made it to trial. It is possible that due to the nature of the case and the publicity that it has received that the court felt the best decision would be to hash everything out in the courtroom.

Mueller's attorney has made a statement in which he claims that his client is innocent and he is determined to show this through the trial. According to USA Today, Mueller's attorney will be raising the question of mistaken identity as well as claiming that Swift only filed a lawsuit when David Mueller filed on in 2015.

The case David Mueller filed back in 2015 stated that he had lost his income because of Taylor Swift's claims and that she and her mother bullied his former employers into firing him.

This will definitely be brought to the jury's attention during the trial and certainly makes Taylor look guilty of being overly defensive at David's claims.

Swift is expected to make an appearance

According to the Independent, Taylor Swift is expected to make an appearance in the courts to openly testify against David Mueller. One has to wonder what the singer's motives are appearing in person, as it is common practice for celebrities to let their legal team handle these cases.

Taylor Swift will not be the only person testifying in the courts as she has asked some witnesses, and friends, to testify on her behalf in the trial. David Mueller's attorney has confirmed that Mueller will also be testifying in the trial. This will give the jury an opportunity to hear both sides of the story so that they can make an informed decision at the end of the trial.

The trial is due to begin today on August 7 in Denver however, as of yet no further information about the trial has been released.
