Taylor Swift's court case against David Mueller starts today. Swift alleges that the Denver radio presenter grabbed her ass at a meet and greet in 2013. Mueller lost his job as a result of the allegations.

The Associated Press reported Swift's account of the incident, "He took his hand and put it up my dress and grabbed onto my ass cheek." The incident being trialled took place in Denver in 2013 before a concert on Taylor Swift's Red tour.

Mueller is suing for $3 million in damages according to the Rolling Stone. Taylor filed a counter law suit one month after Mueller. She is seeking $1 so this can be "an example to other women who may resist publicly reliving similar outrageous and humiliating acts."
