not to sing, but to testify. posing with host david mueller at a meet and greet, swift says he lifted her skirt and grabbed her behind. as soon as he grabbed my behind, i became shocked and withdrawn and was barely able to say thanks for coming, which i what i say to everybody. i was barely able to get the words out. it was like somebody switched the lights off in my personality. swift never reported it to police. but one of the reps told mueller's reporter, kygo radio. managers interviewed mueller and fired him. he sdid not sue the station but he sued swift and his team. he said his contention that mr. mueller lifted up swift's skirt and touched her bottom, while standing with her girlfriend and personnel, during a backstage meet and greet is
nonsense. swift countersued, claiming assault and battery. a member of her security team is expected to testify. during his deposition, he said, before the photo 'cause taken, mueller put his arm around him. he lifted up her skirt. swift reacted and went closer to the girl that was with him. that woman, mueller girlfriend at the time, is also supposed to testify. during her deposition, melcher said, i could not see what was going on behind me. i was unaware of anything that could have gone on. she added, what i know about david mueller from the time we spent together, it is hard for me to believe he would intentionally do something like that to a woman. courthouse security will be tight with limited space expected. spectators must leave their concert gear at home. clothing or buttons with the parties likeness is not allowed.
reminder, this is a federal trial not a show. swift and mueller are not required to be in court today for jury selection, which is closed to the public. opening statements will likely take place at some point tomorrow. because this is a federal case, no cameras allowed in court. back to you guys. >> joe fryer in denver. thanks. check back in with ms. dylan. >> we have crazy video out of california. mammoth mountain. the second-longest ski season they've ever had on record. >> skiing? >> they just closed, august 6th. >> wow. >> i wish we had video. >> good story. >> that's what happened. >> prove it. >> now, just going to really start to heat up out west, which it has been doing lately. we have a refreshing air mass that's going to start working in and produced temperatures well below average.
