The lawsuit introduced by former radio DJ Robert “Jackson” Mueller towards Taylor Swift, who he claims received him fired from his radio job in 2013, and Swift’s countersuit towards Mueller, who she claims groped her throughout a meet-and-greet on the station, is about to go to trial quickly in Denver. Officers predict crowds of Swift superfans to point out up every single day in help of their idol, and have put aside 32 seats within the courtroom and 75 in an overflow room broadcasting the proceedings on closed-circuit TV to accommodate them, in accordance with The New York Instances. However that each one might not matter if they will’t discover 12 eligible residents of the state of Colorado who don’t know a single factor about Taylor Swift.
In response to Jezebel, jury choice within the trial is designed to weed out followers who can be biased in the direction of the singer, and attorneys have circulated a questionnaire amongst potential jurors with the intention of doing simply that. The questionnaire asks if jurors have ever:
- Listened to Taylor Swift on the radio.
- Watched a Taylor Swift video.
- Examine her on-line.
- Purchased a Taylor Swift album.
- “Deliberately listened to Taylor Swift by way of a web based service.” (More durable than it sounds, however okay.)
- Gone to a Taylor Swift live performance.
Add “Heard Taylor Swift over the PA on the grocery retailer,” and there’d be nobody left in America to serve, not to mention Colorado. As Jezebel factors out, these anti-Swiftie measures will probably end in a jury stuffed with older males, which, in a case of a 27-year-old lady versus a middle-aged man, might become some scorching bullshit.
