Taylor Swift's defense team digs into former DJ in cross-examination to kick off trial

He was sacked two days later.
Former disc jockey David Mueller has acknowledged that a photo of him with his hand behind Taylor Swift is "weird and awkward". Following the accusations Mueller has been fired and is now seeking at least £3m.
Mueller, a morning talk show host at the station, was sacked on June 4, two days after he met with Swift before a concert and allegedly stuck his hand under her dress and grabbed her buttocks. Her suit argues that KYGO terminated Mueller after its own independent investigation.
"She didn't acknowledge me when it was time to pose for the photograph", Mueller said. He started testifying Tuesday and was being questioned Wednesday by Swift's attorney Douglas Baldridge about his claim that Swift falsely accused him of groping her before a 2013 concert.
Though several fans showed up for the trial, public interest in watching it at the downtown Denver courthouse is lower than expected, according to the Denver Post, which said that public seats to view the trial in an overflow room were handed over to the media.
Swift, 27, could take the stand to give details of the alleged assault during a meet and greet four years ago.
Ms Swift also attended jury selection on Monday.
In addition, Baldridge referenced Mueller's description of Swift in a court deposition as cold and standoffish.
Others testified in prior depositions that they had never seen Swift react to a photo-shoot in that way.
Wearing a dark blouse and with her hair pulled back, she was accompanied in court by her mother Andrea.

And if Swift is awarded additional damages, she plans to donate the money to causes "dedicated to protecting women from similar acts of sexual assault and personal disregard" (per CNN).
Ms Swift - who was in court on Tuesday - countersued a month later, saying what occurred at the city's Pepsi Center was assault and battery.
On the stand, Mueller described his short meeting with Swift in 2013.
Since there aren't any photos from the trial to publish, the press has been relying on images from a sketch artist to get a feel for what's happening in the courtroom, and let's just say, they're producing some iconic work.
"I accept that", Mueller says. He said he hasn't been able to get a job in radio since the incident.
Swift said, "It was not an accident".
"She couldn't believe that after he grabbed her, that she thanked them for being there", she said. "It's an assault", Baldridge said.
Mueller's lawyer claimed that the photo shows his client's hand "is not underneath Miss Swift's skirt, and her skirt is not rumpled in any fashion".
