If you slide the caliper back and forth a little, it should clear the indentations on the rotor enough. But you won't be able to pull that caliper off without pulling those Torx bolts off first.

I found that the best thing for me to compress the pistons once the rotor is off is to use an old rollerblade wheel (not a deck wheel, it's too fat to fit in between the caliper!!!) Then I just use a pair of channel locks to compress the piston.
