Transcript for Former DJ takes the stand in Taylor Swift groping trial
We'll start with the latest on Taylor Swift's courtroom battle. The radio deejay she accused of sexual assault took the stand yesterday as swift and her fans sat nearby facing questions about this photo obtained by TMZ, that's the feet's at issue. ABC's Clayton Sandell is covering the case from Denver. Good morning, Clayton. Reporter: Good morning to you, George. That's right, David Mueller will be back on the stand this morning. He says he just wants to clear his good name, but he is now facing withering questions from Taylor Swift's legal team about missing evidence. This morning the legal smackdown between the superstar and radio deejay is heating up. ??? You were trouble when you walked in ??? Reporter: A jury of two men and six women seeing this photo obtained by TMZ for the first time. Taylor Swift says it shows the moment in 2013 David Mueller grabbed her inappropriately from behind. Mueller is suing swift for getting him fired. He admits he touched her rib cage leaning in for that photo but denies touching her backside. Mueller took a rapid-fire grilling from swift's attorney about a secret recording he made with his bosses the day before he lost his job. Most of that two-hour file vanished when Mueller claimed his cell phone was accidentally destr destroyed and laptop ruined by spilled coffee. I wish we had the full recording. Swift's attorney said it would show whether you changed your story. The jury will never know. Outside fans lined up early to catch the brahma. Really, really awesome taking a stand about it. Reporter: Some waiting five hours to snag one of just 32 seats. I think it's really great that she's countersuing him because she doesn't need the money. She just wants to make it a point that women don't have to take it and they can stand up for themselves. Reporter: Swift is suing for just $1. In court she smiled to fans and sat with her mother Andrea brought to tears when her attorney described how she's tried to protect her daughter her entire career. Mueller is seeking about $3 million in damages. He should wrap up his testimony today, George. Then all signs are we should see Taylor Swift on the stand? Reporter: That's right. She is expected to testify. The problem is the judge has barred both sides from publicly releasing their witness plans so the answer for now is stay tuned, George. We will stay tuned. Okay, Clayton, thanks very much.
