Taylor Swift recorded a video deposition July 26, 2016, and it is unknown when Swift will appear in court, but she is expected to testify.

Mueller denies inappropriately touching Swift on her buttocks and is suing the singer-songwriter for US$3 million (S$4.09 million) while Swift is seeking US$1 and a ruling that holds him responsible.

Jury selection in the Taylor Swift civil case involving a groping claim has ended for the day and will resume Tuesday.

The Associated Press reports jury selection is set to begin today for both sides in their dueling lawsuits.

Mueller sued Swift over the 2013 incident, claiming that Swift's false accusation cost him his job.

Musician Taylor Swift performs onstage during the 2017 DIRECTV NOW Super Saturday Night Concert at Club Nomadic on February 4, 2017 in Houston, Texas.

In addition to standard queries about personal background and prior jury service, the juror questionnaire touched on Swift and Mueller and the photo in question. Swift filed a counterclaim against him for allegedly groping her. Attorneys pressed the 16 potential jurors on whether they're fans of Swift ("I don't follow her", one woman said) or KYGO ("It's not my type of music", said a man).

A member of Swift's staff called Mueller's boss at radio station KYGO and asked that the station "take appropriate action".

In July, Martinez sanctioned the radio host for destroying evidence. "They made their independent decision".

Mueller's right hand is somewhere behind Swift, slightly below her waist. It is unclear whether he is touching her. Swift said that she told her tour manager and security staff that she had been groped. That's where the 2015 slander lawsuit Mueller filed comes into play. The DJ asserted in court documents that he had met "hundreds of celebrities" in the past but had never been accused of physical misconduct. She asserted she had nothing to do with Mueller losing his job.

Swift countersued, alleging sexual battery by Mueller. She says she does not know Mueller and has no incentive to target him or to fabricate a story.

When is Taylor Swift testifying? It's unclear when Swift will take the witness stand.

Who will testify at the trial? .

According to court documents obtained by ABC News, Mueller is accusing Swift of "intentional interference with contractual obligations" and "interference with prospective business relations" that led to lost wages.

After the first courtroom break, Mueller, wearing a dark suit, conspicuously took a different seat at the table near his attorney.

Members of the public can line up to watch proceedings from an overflow room in the courthouse, but so far there hasn't been a big turnout.
