Well, the first day of court following jury selection is complete, and we’ve got some details about what happened in the courtroom Yesterday. Starting Monday, August 7th, jury selection began. They concluded in the same day, and picked a jury made up of 2 men and 6 women, for 8 total.
Tuesday in court, the 9-day trial began with the opening statements. Taylor’s attorney says that Taylor is “taking a stand for all women,” and calling it a case of “sexual assault in the workplace.” Taylor’s mother, Andrea, became emotional during the opening statements, drying tears from her face. Taylor herself remained calm and focussed. Taylor’s attorney continued, “A woman is assaulted. She reports it and she gets sued. It doesn’t make sense,” continuing, “She’s trying to tell people out there that you can say no when someone grabs you no matter who they are.”
It was also discovered that Taylor Swift is suing David Mueller, the DJ, for just $1.
Day 3 begins today, and we’ll have updates for you on how the case is going throughout the week.
