Taylor Swift Excused From Jury Duty Over 'Grope' Case
During the screening process in Nashville, the singer said she was concerned she might be biased - revealing her involvement in a civil case over an alleged sexual assault.
Davidson County District¬†Attorney General's Office spokesman Ken Whitehouse said a judge accepted the 26-year-old's argument and dismissed her as a potential juror.
He said: "She asked to be left off out of concern for an upcoming trial in¬†Denver where she was - she used the term 'groped' - by a fan at a¬†meet-and-greet."
Swift told the judge she would be more than willing to serve on a jury in any¬†other type of case, Mr Whitehouse said.
Before the hearing, the Shake It Off singer chatted and took selfies with other members of the jury pool.
Technology-infrastructure company boss Bryan Merville said around 20 of 140 people in a waiting area asked for a photo or autograph.
After getting a photo for his daughters, Mr Merville said:¬†"She's about as famous as they come, but she couldn't have been nicer.
"She took the time to talk to every person who asked her for a¬†picture."
Katie Caplenor, who got the star to record a video for her carpool friends, posted a photo¬†on Facebook and said: "Jury duty was quite an experience."
The sexual assault case in Denver is based on a counterclaim filed by Swift after a former radio host who was sacked from his job¬†sued her.
David Mueller¬†claimed he lost his job after a member of Swift's security team¬†falsely accused him of grabbing the singer's buttocks backstage during a 2013¬†photo session.
Muller claimed the person who assaulted Swift was actually one of¬†his superiors.
Swift's counterclaim states: "Ms Swift knows exactly who committed the¬†assault."
