DAVID MUELLER SPEAKS OUT AFTER LOSING TAYLOR SWIFT GROPING LAWSUIT
(CNN) — For six days inside of a downtown Denver courtroom, David Mueller sat facing the jury of eight people that would ultimately rule that he assaulted and battered one of the biggest names in music: Taylor Swift. The white-haired, six-foot former radio DJ gleaned nothing from the expressions on the jurors’ faces as they watched each witness testify, but he figured it wouldn’t be right to face the other way. “I wanted them to see me. I didn’t want to have my back to them,” Mueller said. He said he approached the accusations against him in much the same way — head on. What makes Mueller’s decision to file suit extraordinary is that after he was accused of grabbing Swift’s bare backside at a meet and greet on June 2, 2013, there were only a handful of people who knew about it at all — just whispers and rumors inside the radio industry. It was Mueller himself who brought the accusations to light, with his now-failed lawsuit against Swift, her mother and a member of her management team — claiming they were responsible for his firing from Denver radio station KYGO. In his closing statement, Swift’s attorney Doug Baldridge pleaded with jurors to “stop the victimization in this country and in this courtroom.”But in an interview with CNN on Tuesday, Mueller said he is a victim too. He also shares his story in detail right here on the Jim Bohannon Show.
