Well here’s one way to get out of jury duty, have an ongoing sexual assault case.
That’s exactly how Taylor Swift got dismissed. And yes even she gets summoned to jury duty. Swift showed up yesterday morning in Nashville to take care of her civic obligation, but was sent home after prosecutors asked her profession during jury selection.
Taylor answered, “I am a song writer”. When prosecutors heard that they looked up saw it was Taylor Swift and realized conflict of interest since she is involved in her own ongoing legal case with a DJ that is similar in nature to the case she was summoned for.
Swift is suing a former DJ named “Mueller” who used the name “Jackson” on the air. He filed a suit against her first claiming he was fired from his DJ job over false allegations he grabbed her butt while taking a photo.
That supposedly took place June 2, 2013 when they had a meet and greet. Swift then filed a counter lawsuit saying he did it and further alleges he not only butt grabbed but he lifted her skirt to do it.
Taylor is demanding a jury trial and says any money she wins from the trial will go “to charities dedicated to protecting woman from similar acts of sexual assault and personal disregard”.
