Taylor Swift is expected to testify against former KYGO radio DJ David Mueller in August.
As fans may recall, Swift accused the former DJ of groping her during a meet and greet in June 2013 and in turn, he accused her of spewing false allegations which ultimately resulted in him being fired from his radio gig.
Although Swift’s team requested a summary judgment against Mueller’s claims, which also suggested that it was someone else who groped Swift, a judge in Colorado rejected the request.
“A summary judgment is a final decision by a judge, upon a party’s motion — in this case, Swift’s team — that resolves a suit before trial after reviewing evidence from both sides,” Page Six revealed to readers on June 2. “A summary judgment is awarded if undisputed facts and the law make it obvious that the opposing side (in this case, Mueller) would lose in a trial.”

At the same time, the outlet revealed, the judge threw out two slander claims against Swift.
According to Page Six, Swift is expected to take the stand in regard to other aspects of his lawsuit, including “tortious interference with prospective business relations and intentional interference with contract.”
David Mueller has been unable to find work as a DJ
In addition to suggesting that Swift lied about Mueller’s alleged butt grab, the former DJ also claims Swift’s reportedly false allegations against him have kept him from working again in the industry.
