Taylor Swift has requested the photographic evidence and detailed documents used in her 2013 groping case be sealed in order to prevent the sensitive material from being leaked to the public.

Don't mess with Taylor.

According to The Denver Post, Swift worries that public access to the photos and documents proving she was groped by former radio host David Mueller could be shared for "scandalous and prurient interests,” and potentially taint a jury should the case go to trial. The motion seeks to seal photographs, 12 pages of summary judgment and hundreds of pages of supporting documents.

In September 2015, Mueller filed a lawsuit against Swift saying he was falsely accused by a member of her security team of grabbing Swift's butt, and that a colleague of his was actually the one who molested her. He was invited backstage of the Pepsi Center in Denver in 2013 as part of his then-job as a radio for 98.5 radio. He was fired two days after the being accused of sexually assaulting Swift.

If the judge dismisses Mueller's case against Swift, there would be no trial and all the documents Swift is seeking to seal will never become public. Even if the case it thrown out, Mueller still has Swift's infamous squad to worry about.
