Swift contradicted Mueller's earlier testimony that he had simply "jostled" Swift while posing for the photo, and according to the Denver Post, suggested that he may have touched her rib cage, but not her buttocks. Coomer called it a lie.
Swift countersued, alleging sexual assault.
Mueller has sued Swift, claiming he was falsely accused and lost his job.
A member of Swift's security team later confronted Mueller, and a representative for the singer ultimately lodged a complaint with the radio station. Mueller testified he did not grope Swift.
Though Mueller did not appear to pose Swift any danger, Dent said, "I thought it was a violation of her body".
Mueller denied groping her in testimony on Wednesday.
Mr Baldridge did get Mueller to concede that various supervisors with KYGO and its parent firm had discussed the possibility of letting him go even before the encounter with Swift.
Swift said that someone would have had to been underneath her to see the actual groping "and we didn't have anyone positioned there".
Her testimony lasted about an hour.
Melcher, who was in the photo with Swift and Mueller, was the plaintiff's final witness on Friday. "He sexually assaulted her, this guy, who is present here".More news: Paint is Going Nowhere, Confirms Microsoft Following Backlash
Swift testified, "He did not touch my rib".
(7) McFarland questioned why no one witnessed Mueller grabbing Swift's backside.
"Resolution of this counterclaim will demonstrate that Mueller alone was the perpetrator of the humiliating and wrongful conduct targeted against Ms".
The singer, who was responding to questions from Mr Mueller's lawyer, added: "He stayed latched on to my bare ass cheek as I lurched away from him". She is seeking a symbolic $1, saying she wants to serve as an example to other women who have been assaulted.
On Tuesday, the pop star's mother, Andrea Swift, testified that since the incident with Mueller, her daughter has stopped going into the crowd at shows and now background checks people before meet-and-greets. For its part, the radio host continues with Taylor Swift for having caused the loss of his job and messed up his name.
Swift has testified that "it was a definite grab".
She said the grab was under her skirt. "So in my opinion, I knew he touched her", he said.
'I'm not going to allow you or your client to make me feel in any way that this is my fault, because it isn't, ' she said, referring to Mueller's subsequent firing from radio station KYGO after his employers were informed of the alleged assault by Swift's management team.
She said she didn't contact police in order to protect her daughter, saying she didn't want the incident to "define her life".
Mueller was sacked from his job as an on-air personality for the Denver radio station KYGO shortly after Swift's allegations against him surfaced. The tragedy is a culture that continues to treat sexual assault as an act of little outcome.
