Baldridge introduces a new piece of evidence, a photo of Eddie Haskell and Taylor Swift taken before the June 2, 2013 Denver show, and asks Mueller to confirm that it is Haskell in the photo.
In a deposition previous year, Swift said, "He reached up under my skirt and grabbed my ass right when I was having to pose for the photo, and it felt intentional that that would be the time he would choose to do it". As reported by Reuters, the 27-year-old "Bad Blood" singer strongly believed that it was intentional, and not an accident.
The jury was shown the photo by Mueller's lawyer, Gabriel McFarland, which shows Mueller with his hand behind Swift, just below her waist.
"Right as the moment came for us to pose for the photo, he took his hand and put it up my dress and grabbed onto my ass cheek and no matter how much I scooted over it was still there" Swift states.
Mueller says he did not grope Taylor Swift while they were taking a picture before the show and she cost him his job when her team claimed he assaulted the superstar.
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.
Mueller has sued Swift, claiming he is being falsely accused and that he was sacked over her allegation.
Lawsuit Claims Usher Didn't Tell People He Had Herpes Before Sex
According to Bloom at least one of her clients has tested posted for the virus and alleges that it was Usher who transmitted it. On July 19, documents were leaked online, showing that in 2012, Usher admitted in court documents to having herpes .
He says Swift's team told Mueller's bosses at a country music station, and he was sacked from his DJ position.
Mueller did not sue his station KYGO or its parent company Lincoln Financial Media Co. of Colorado, after he was sacked June 4, 2013.
But in his opening statement, Baldridge told jurors that Swift is "absolutely certain" she was sexually assaulted by Mueller, and the photo is "damning" proof of it. She revealed in her countersuit that any money she wins will be donated to "charitable organisations dedicated to protecting women from similar acts of sexual abuse and personal disregard". He did admit he may have accidentally touched her ribs. Fans lined up outside the courtroom holding tokens, hoping to catch a glimpse of the star during the nine-day trial. She's seeking a symbolic $1, saying she wants to serve as an example to other assault victims.
He launched a lawsuit against Swift in September 2015, alleging that she should have called the police rather than his managers and that she had caused him to lose his job and salary. Swift, however, did not specifically request that Mueller be fired.
Mr 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.
When McFarland questioned his client, he asked about where and how exactly the contact between Mueller and Swift occurred.
But Baldridge, Swift's attorney, said the pop star was sure it was Mueller who touched her. Baldridge also argued that Mueller had repeatedly changed his story and had destroyed evidence in the case leading up to trial.
