The American singer-songwriter Taylor Swift has successfully won a legal victory in the lawsuit case against a former radio DJ who allegedly claims sexually assaulted her.

According to Gossip Cop and the Associated Press, Mueller is seeking $3 million in damages from Swift, while Swift is seeking just $1 in her suit (in addition to reimbursement for attorneys fees and costs in defending the suit, according to pre-trial documents per The Denver Post).

Taylor Swift countersued former DJ Mueller over claims that he groped her during a meet-and-greet prior to her concert show, explaining it as a "long grab" that she was "completely sure" that it was intentional.

However, the rest of the allegations that the former radio host made against Swift's mother and her liaison officer will still be decided upon for a verdict, The Guardian added. A judge will make a call next week.

Day Two After a mostly middle-aged jury of six women (one black, one Asian and four white) and two men (one white, one Hispanic) was selected, the trial began.

The alleged assault is said to have occurred in 2013 during a Denver stopover on the singer's Red tour.

Swift used the word "ass" dozens of times on the witness stand Thursday as she told jurors that David Mueller reached under her skirt during a meet-and-greet photo op in 2013.

Greg Dent told the Colorado court he "did not see his hand touch her physically", but "saw his hand under her skirt".

The judge said that "Taylor Swift did not act improperly".

Day Three Andrea Swift and Bell took the stand.

"It was a definite grab - a very long grab".

When Mr Mueller's lawyer, Gabriel McFarland, asked why her bodyguard did not interfere when the alleged incident happened, the pop star said: "No-one could have expected this to happen. It was horrifying and shocking".
