Music superstar Taylor Swift told a USA court on August 10 of her shock as she realized she was being groped during a photo opportunity in Colorado, as she faced the former DJ she accuses of assaulting her.

Day FourTaylor Swift herself gave snarky, assured testimony, dropping the word "ass" repeatedly as she drove home her conviction that Mueller had intentionally groped her during a meet-and-greet photo-op.

US District Judge William Martinez agreed with Swift's attorney, who had filed a motion asking for the pop star to be dropped from Mueller's lawsuit, saying his case should have been against his radio station.

Earlier this week, Swift and her mother, Andrea, testified in front of the court. A judge will make a call next week.

She is seeking a symbolic $1 in damages, which she has pledged to donate to charity. In a statement Swift wrote she would hope that going to trial for this case will 'serve as an example to other women who may resist publicly reliving similar outrageous and humiliating acts'.

On Friday, Swift's bodyguard, Greg Dent, testified against Mueller and said that he witnessed the alleged assault. The Guardian reported that the radio host said, "No, I did not [grab her backside]". However, Mueller denies the groping claims.

The alleged assault is said to have occurred in 2013 during a Denver stopover on the singer's Red tour. The photo of Swift, Mueller and his girlfriend shows the morning show host on radio station KYGO with his hand behind the singer's rear end.

Mr Dent, who no longer works for Ms Swift, told the court he was steps away when Mr Mueller posed with his girlfriend and the pop star. "A very long grab".

"It had never happened before".

He added when he heard the allegations, he "thought it was a joke".
