Taylor Swift has been excused from jury duty, and not because of her celebrity status.
E! News reports Taylor – who reported for jury duty in Nashville Monday morning – was excused from serving because she’s got legal woes of her own that are similar to the case on which she was being asked to serve. Specifically, it’s the lawsuit filed against her by a Colorado DJ, whom Taylor claims groped her buttocks three years ago at a backstage meet-and-greet, while he posed with her for a photo. The DJ denies the accusation and claims it got him fired.
The jury on which Taylor was being asked to serve will hear a case involving “aggravated kidnapping, aggravated rape and aggravated domestic assault,” according to E!
Swift caused a predictable flurry of social media reaction when she showed up Monday morning to do her civic duty.
