Taylor Swift dismissed from jury in sexual assault case
Taylor Swift has been dismissed from jury duty in Nashville, Tennessee after insisting she cannot be impartial in a rape case. The singer told the judge she has a pending civil case that also involves sexual assault.
Taylor’s case relates to a 2013 incident in Colorado, where local radio host David Mueller was accused of groping the singer’s butt during a concert meet and greet session. Mueller is suing the star, claiming he was falsely accused and lost his job at Denver’s KYGO station as a result.
The singer had her day in court on Monday (Aug29) when she showed up for what could be a long trial, but won’t have to return to court to continue her civic duty since the judge didn’t think she could be impartial.
However Taylor was very kind with the other prospective jurors and agreed to pose for selfies with them.
