Asked if he grabbed her backside, the former disc jockey for Denver radio station KYGO-FM replied, "No, I did not".
"I am critical of your client for sticking his hand under my skirt and grabbing my a*s", Swift said. Coomer called it a lie.
On Wednesday, Mueller, 55, testified that he was sacked from two previous jobs as well, according to the Denver Post. According to those who showed up to the public trial in support of Swift, the incomparably successful singer-songwriter stood her ground and never faltered.
Baldridge did get Mueller to concede that various supervisors with KYGO and its parent firm had discussed the possibility of letting him go even before the encounter with Swift. In one instance, Swift was asked if she could see the incident directly. Lena Dunham praised her "fierce" testimony.
The pop superstar dismissed attempts to dissuade her from her story and rejected the suggestion that she had continued greeting guests for as long as 30 minutes after the alleged assault as if nothing had happened.
In the image, shown to jurors during opening statements but not publicly released, Mueller's hand is behind Swift, just below her waist. "He sexually assaulted her, this guy, who is present here".
Earlier Friday, Swift's bodyguard testified that he witnessed Mueller reach his hand under Swift's skirt at a 2013 Denver photo-op in what he called a "violation" of her body.
"When she told me someone had grabbed her, I was very upset", Andrea Swift said, describing her daughter as "really shaken" and humiliated.
Rain Chances Return Thursday
Sunny skies and a high near 88 are expected Wednesday for Topeka and northeast Kansas, according to the National Weather Service . The airmass will be warm & humid across the area Sunday , and showers and storms will be likely especially in the afternoon.
"As they were posing for the photo, I saw her fall into the female, she had an uncomfortable look on her face", Simbeck said. She testified that "this was something I did not want known".
David Mueller maintains his stance that the allegation against him is false.
Lena Dunham is "proud" of Taylor Swift after the pop star took the stand to testify against the ex-DJ she claims groped her.
Mueller claimed it was his boss, Hershel Coomer (known professionally as Eddie Haskell) and not he himself who groped Swift.
Swift counter-sued for assault and battery, asking for damages of $1. "I know it was him", she added when asked if she was sure that it was Mueller who had groped her.
Since the Denver incident, the singer has changed how she handles meetings with fans, cutting back on meet-and greet opportunities, her mother said, and avoiding going into the audience during gigs. She listened closely and took notes during Mueller's testimony; and is expected to take the stand herself in the coming days.
Swift has testified that "it was a definite grab. I know that it happened".
A federal judge is weighing whether or not Taylor Swift should still be named in a case where a former DJ alleges she falsely accused him of groping her, preventing him from finding another radio job and causing him to lose out on a $150,000 a year job.
She said she didn't contact police in order to protect her daughter, saying she didn't want the incident to "define her life".
