In a move that experts say is empowering to sexual assault victims everywhere, Taylor Swift is moving forward with her lawsuit against a DJ she says groped her at a public appearance.
Taylor appeared in a Denver court on Tuesday as a jury was finalized for her case, NBC News reports. In the suit, Taylor claims that former radio DJ David “Jackson” Mueller groped her during a 2013 fan meet-and-greet before a show in Colorado. According to Taylor, David lifted her skirt and grabbed her bare butt while a photo was being taken. “I remember being frantic, distressed, feeling violated in a way I had never experienced before,” she said of the alleged assault in her 2015 deposition, which was obtained by Billboard.
