According to reports, the jury was sent home this weekend before the judge will decide on the counterclaim brought by Swift's attorney to exclude her from Mueller's lawsuit. Swift is countersuing Mueller and alleges assault. Taylor Swift is claiming that Mueller grabbed her just beneath her skirt and one of her security guards witnessed it.

Dent told the court he was steps away when Mueller posed with his girlfriend and the pop star. "So in my opinion, I knew he touched her", he said.
