The Denver Post - - NEWS - — Staff and wire re­ports

A three-block stretch of Colorado Boule­vard will be tan­gled with traf­fic trou­ble and road clo­sures for the rest of the sum­mer. And that’s good news, be­cause it means rede­vel­op­ment at East Ninth Av­enue and Colorado is keep­ing up with project goals.

Two north­bound lanes of Colorado be­tween East Sev­enth and East Ninth av­enues and the south­bound lane that turns on to East Eighth Av­enue will be closed through Aug. 4, ac­cord­ing to Alana Watkins, a spokes­woman for Con­tin­uum Part­ners, which is re­de­vel­op­ing the old Univer­sity of Colorado Hos­pi­tal cam­pus.

Mo­torists may want to avoid this stretch dur­ing peak rush hours. Clo­sure will span 8 a.m to 4 p.m. Mon­day through Fri­day, when north­bound traf­fic will creep along in just one lane.

Tes­ti­mony on fired DJ’s earn­ings in Tay­lor Swift law­suit will be al­lowed.

A for­mer ra­dio host who is su­ing mu­sic star Tay­lor Swift in fed­eral court in Den­ver will be al­lowed to pre­sent ex­pert tes­ti­mony on eco­nomic loss he’s suf­fered since be­ing fired, but it will be lim­ited.

De­fense at­tor­neys rep­re­sent­ing Swift filed a mo­tion to quash tes­ti­mony by Jef­fery B. Opp, an “ex­pert wit­ness” on be­half of plain­tiff David Mueller, a for­mer KYGO ra­dio per­son­al­ity.

Swift al­leges that Mueller in­ap­pro­pri­ately touched her but­tocks dur­ing a June 2013 back­stage meet-and-greet at a Pepsi Cen­ter con­cert. Mueller was fired af­ter the al­le­ga­tions and filed a 2015 law­suit against the singer.

On Tues­day U.S. Dis­trict Judge Wil­liam Martinez ruled that Opp can tes­tify in an up­com­ing trial, al­though the judge lim­ited his tes­ti­mony.

Swift’s mo­tion to “ex­clude the ex­pert re­port, opin­ions and tes­ti­mony” of Opp is “granted in part, and de­nied in part,” the judge ruled.

Opp “may not of­fer opin­ions stat­ing his own view” of Mueller’s “quan­ti­fied value” in the ra­dio in­dus­try, nor can he opine on Mueller’s “em­ploy­a­bil­ity.” Opp will, how­ever, be al­lowed to of­fer opin­ion on “past and fu­ture wage loss” to a lim­ited ex­tent.
