Taylor Swift, ex-radio host head to court over groping claim


DENVER (AP) – A former radio host claims in a lawsuit that he lost his job because Taylor Swift falsely accused him of groping her.

The singer-songwriter has countersued, alleging she’s the victim of sexual assault and battery.

David Mueller is seeking up to $3 million in damages at the trial that begins Monday in federal court in Denver. Both sides say no settlement is in the works.

The lawsuits provide differing accounts of events that occurred backstage before Swift performed at a 2013 concert at the Pepsi Center in Denver.
