Gwyneth Paltrow the star is a real test this week defending his downhill skills after a skiing accident in 2016.
Gwyneth Paltrow could take a stand
It seems the actress doesn’t want to go down without a fight. There is a good chance that he will take a stand in his own defense. The crash was described as a “hit and run” on the slopes.
Retired optometrist Terry Sanderson is suing the Goop founder for $3.1 million and filed the first lawsuit in 2019. He claims she seriously injured him while skiing “unsupervised” at a resort in Park City, Utah.
He now claims to be suffering from a traumatic brain injury, broken ribs and loss of enjoyment of life. But Paltrow’s attorney says Sanderson has traveled internationally at least three times since the accident; Thailand, Netherlands and Central Europe.
They don’t seem to believe that Sanderson is as hurt as he claims to be, and that he doesn’t lack enjoyment in his life.
Gwyneth Paltrow resisted
The former doctor claimed he had limited recollection of the ordeal because of how hard he was hit on the slope. Fortunately for him. Paltrow has great memories of it.
“Miss. Paltrow has a very clear recollection of what happened. She was enjoying skiing with her family on vacation in Utah when the Plaintiff — up from Ms. Paltrow — stabbed her in the back… Ms. Paltrow was angry with the Plaintiff and said this. The Plaintiff apologized,” according to the court doc.
His lawyer said Sanderson had health problems long before he ran into Paltrow. “In addition to his vision problems, he had 15 other chronic health problems.” He also underwent brain tests, all of which came back with “no deficits in cognitive functioning.”
Sanderson was also informed that he could not seek $3.1 million in damages. the most you can ask for is $300,000, which is huge among millions.
There is nothing to support Terry Sanderson’s claims
The actress’ attorney continued to press Sanderson’s accusations. “The undisputed facts do not support the allegation that Ms. Paltrow committed a seizure.” Sanderson’s findings continued to be used against him.
A ski expert selected by Sanderson “concluded that the evidence showed that defendant Paltrow’s actions after the collision were “reasonable under the circumstances.”
Although he claims that Paltrow was clumsy after he hit her and immediately blamed her, those claims have been proven wrong.
Regardless, the jury will judge it. According to The New York Post, eight jurors and two alternates have been selected, and the trial will begin Tuesday in Utah’s Third District Court.
Paltrow is seeking $1 million as part of her countersuit, mostly for legal fees, because she admitted she had “relatively minor injuries.”
Gwyneth Paltrow Under Fire
On the other end of the spectrum, Paltrow has come under fire for sharing her very minimal diet with the masses. It consists of bone broth, no sugars, intermittent fasting, and this is responsible for the thin figure.
Many had their opinions about Paltrow’s diet and why she went public with it. Plus-size model Tess Holliday believed it was harmful to her fans who looked up to her and begged the actress to stop promoting the food in this way.
