David Mueller claimed he was sacked from his job at radio station KYGO after being falsely accused by the 27-year-old pop star of groping her butt while posing for a photo.
Swift has counter-sued for s*xual assault, saying she was "forced to start a one hour concert before 13,000 fans while still in distress after being so inappropriately touched".
Mueller was sacked after the accusation, and is suingswift for $3 million dollars. One of her more pronounced reactions came when Mueller mentioned that he had deleted an audio recording of a meeting with his bosses regarding the incident, in order to record video at a John Mayer concert at Red Rocks.
"If anyone touched her rear she has the right to not like that", he said.
"A woman is assaulted. Any woman-rich, poor, famous or not-is entitled to have that not happen".
"It was not an accident, it was completely intentional, and I have never been so sure of anything in my life", Swift stated.

Both Swift and the DJ, David Mueller, are in Denver federal court Tuesday as a field of more than 30 people is winnowed down to an eight-person jury. Swift is due to give evidence later this week.
Mueller was also accused of destroying evidence, including recorded conversations between himself and his KYGO bosses.
Earlier in the day, an attorney for Mueller told jurors that inappropriate touching is wrong, but falsely accusing someone of the offense is equally unacceptable.
Baldridge peppered Mueller with question after question, forcing Mueller to acknowledge some things in the case that could prove unfavorable to his reputation.
TMZ released the photo in question a year ago, which shows Mueller with his hand below waist level behind Swift.
In his opening statement, Mr Mueller said he had only sued "to clear his name and for lost earnings", denying reports that he was seeking $3m in damages from the radio promotions director of his former station.
Mueller continues to claim it was a "quick slide in" to get the photo and that he didn't touch Swift's bare bottom.
