Taylor Swift's Sexual Assault Case Expert Challenged

(Radio.com) There has been a new development this week in the legal battle between country pop star Taylor Swift and former Denver Country radio DJ, David Mueller.

Muller sued Swift in 2015, claiming he was fired after false allegations that he groped the singer at an event in 2013. Swift countersued that same year claiming sexual assault and battery.

Just this week, Muller's attorneys have filed a motion to preclude the testimony of Lorraine Bayard de Volo Ph.D., an expert for Swift's legal team, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Bayard teaches women and gender studies at University of Colorado Boulder and wrote an opinion in which she posits in part: "This perfect storm of threats to Mr. Mueller's perceived status is consistent with the well-settled, academically-accepted, perceived threats to status that motivate a man to commit sexual harassment or assault."

In the motion to exclude, Muller's attorney Gabriel McFarland writes: "She has never before served as an expert witness, and apparently has no training in psychology." Read more here.

The song follows lead single "Yours If You Want It" and urges fans to dance like nobody's watching. The band even invited fans into the studio to lend backing vocals on the track.

"It's a great uptempo song, it's just so catchy," said bassist Jay DeMarcus. "We did something fun and had a few contest winners come in and sing on the chorus with us. I'm really, really proud of that track just because of the energy it has. There's a wonderful guitar solo on it that Joe Don gets to step out on."

"Dance" could end up in the canon of great Rascal Flatts party songs. Their approach to Back to Us was to give fans more of what they already love. "People fell in love with us for a reason, and we tried to identify what those reasons were, capitalize on them, and highlight them on this record." Listen to "Dance" here.
