The trial, which began Monday, is the latest event in a drawn-out legal battle between Swift and Mueller.

Swift is now a party to an action that is taking place in the federal court system in Denver, Colorado.

Lawyers for Swift, who countersued David Mueller, now will have their turn to call witnesses. Each side of the trial has attempted to use the photo to bolster their argument, but Swift rejected McFarland's claim that the photo showed nothing inappropriate. Mueller claims Swift's team is the reason why he lost his job.

Call said Swift's liaison to radio stations, Frank Bell, told him Swift's team was "outraged ... very upset" by what happened and was considering all options, including alerting the police.

Mueller says his hand was touching Swift's skirt after he put his arm around her and their arms got crossed. She said she saw nothing happen during the brief encounter and that she and Mueller were rudely confronted and escorted out of the arena that evening.

The Shake It Off and I Knew You Were Trouble singer, however, later complained and Mr Dent confronted Mr Mueller at the event.
