Swifties Can Now Get a Front-Row Seat to Taylor Swift’s
Concert Court Case
Taylor Swift is officially headed to court following the alleged groping case against Colorado DJ David Mueller, and good news, Swifties — you, too, can get right in on the action.
Okay, so it’s no sold-out arena concert, but it might just be the hottest ticket in town.
Thankfully, Tay’s ongoing battle against the DJ, to whom she claims touched her inappropriately during a meet-and-greet back in 2013, may finally come to an end as early as next week. According to the legal docs, jury selection will begin on Monday in Colorado for the lawsuit following Taylor’s claim, to which David filed against her and her countersuit after being fired from his job at 98.5 KYGO, over her accusations that he groped her butt during the photo op.
David sued Taylor following the accusations, along with her mother, Andrea Swift, and her manager, Frank Bell, alleging that they exerted improper pressure on his employer to fire him, claiming that the incident may have happened by “accident,” to which Taylor fought back with a countersuit for assault and battery, saying that she felt “frantic, distressed and violated in a way I had never experienced before.”
Not only will this be one heck of a dramatic court case, but now Swifties will also be able to get a piece of the action, as there will be 32 seats held each day for the public, which will be granted on a first-come, first-serve basis. According to the documents, anybody from the public can start lining up at 6 a.m. and passes will be handed out at 7 a.m. to the first lucky 32 people.
But if you’re not part of the first group of 32, an overflow room with TV monitors will be available for 75 more people. It may be a small gamble, as well as the fact that there’s no guarantee that Taylor will be in court every day, but hey, a slight possibility of seeing Taylor is better than none, right?
The 9-day trial is set to begin on August 7th in Colorado, in which the fate of the cases and the true facts of the matter will be up to the jury to decide, not the judge. According to U.S. District Court Judge William Martinez assigned to the case, “Credibility determinations are likely central to resolving this case.”
So will Tay officially be ‘out of the woods?’ Only time will tell…
