Breaking News

Taylor Swift was just dismissed as a prospective juror in an aggravated rape/kidnapping case because she told the judge she has a pending civil case that also involves sexual assault.

Taylor was being questioned about possible bias in a case involving a man who allegedly penetrated a woman with a broom handle after holding her at bay. 

The singer told the judge she has a case in Colorado in which a DJ allegedly fondled her backstage during a concert, so the judge didn't think she could be impartial.

Taylor was dismissed from the jury panel for cause.
