One of the biggest pop stars in the world is getting set to hit court, all that remains is finding a jury. But before that happens, raise your hand if you didn't even know there was a Taylor Swift court case.

For all you people out there who were unaware, here's what's happening in Mueller v. Swift.

The Incident

In 2013, Taylor Swift was on her Red tour. She had a show in Denver, Colorado where she did a meet-and-greet with radio host David Mueller and his girlfriend. According to Swift and her team, Mueller reached under the singer's dress and grabbed her bottom.

"He took his hand and put it up my dress and grabbed onto my ass cheek, and no matter how much I scooted over, it was still there," Swift says in court documents.

Mueller's Lawsuit

After Swift went public with her accusations, David Mueller sued the singer, saying she cost him not only his job, but his reputation. He claims Swift's team put pressure on his employer after sending them the pictures they claimed showed the alleged groping.

"The contention that Mr Mueller lifted up Ms Swift's skirt and grabbed her bottom, while standing with his girlfriend, in front of Ms Swift's photographer and Ms Swift's highly trained security personnel, during a company-sponsored, VIP, backstage meet-and-greet, is nonsense," wrote his lawyer in court documents.

"The radio station was given evidence immediately after the incident," Swift's spokesperson later confirmed to People magazine. "They made their independent decision."
