How Taylor Swift Fans In The Office Across From The Courthouse Where She Testified Showed Their Support — PHOTOS
On Thursday in Denver, Colorado, Taylor Swift testified in court against radio DJ David Mueller. In a countersuit, Swift alleges Mueller groped her back in 2013 while they posed for a photo during a meet-and-greet before a concert. Mueller claims that Swift's allegations are false and is suing her for $3 million in damages, claiming he lost his job because her team allegedly told the radio station he worked for about the alleged incident, CNN reports. Fans who work at a building across the street from the courthouse where the trial is taking place have used their proximity to show their support for Swift in a very eye-catching way — they've written out messages on their windows using what appear to be sticky notes.
During her testimony on Thursday, Aug. 10, Swift proved that she does not intend to back down from her claims. Swift is only seeking $1 from Mueller, but, according to her lawsuit, wants the case to "[serve] as an example to other women who may resist publicly reliving similar outrageous and humiliating acts."
"[Mueller] took his hand and put it up my dress and grabbed onto my ass cheek," Swift claimed while being examined by Mueller's attorney. "It was not an accident," Swift claimed previously during a deposition, according to Time. "It was completely intentional, and I have never been so sure of anything in my life."
Although Swift testified Thursday, the trial began earlier in the week and the office building across the street has posted numerous sticky note message of support for her. Thursday's read, "I knew you were trouble," seemingly a reference to both the trial, as well as Swift's popular song of the same name.
Earlier in the week the same window featured a message reading, "haterz gonna hate," another reference to one of Swift's songs, "Shake it Off."
Additionally, photographers caught the co-workers behind the window along with a note that said, "Free Tay!"
Swift reportedly spent a little under an hour testifying before the jury. She was not questioned by her own lawyer. "I know exactly who did this, this is what happened," she claimed. "It happened to me. I know it was him." Swift also claimed that she "thought what [Mueller] did was despicable." In response to a question about Mueller being fired Swift told his attorney, "I am not going to allow your my client to make me feel like it is anyway my fault because it isn’t."
