Today in Park City, Utah, a decision was made about the Gwyneth Paltrow ski accident trial, and the star was found not guilty. The $1 that Paltrow sought in her countersuit was granted. Over the past two weeks, the unusual televised trial has been the talk of social media.
Terry Sanderson, a 76-year-old retired ophthalmologist, filed a $300,000 lawsuit against Paltrow, claiming that in 2016, the actor crashed into him while skiing at the Deer Valley ski resort, inflicting four broken ribs, a concussion, and a brain injury. Then Paltrow countersued for $1 plus legal costs.
Before a judge ruled against him, Sanderson claimed $3.1 million in punitive damages. The downhill skier has the right-of-way according to Utah law, but both Paltrow and Sanderson insisted that they were the ones going downhill.
Paltrow gave the eight-member jury her testimony first, stating that Sanderson had collided with her. Paltrow yelled, “You skied right into my fucking back.” She described how Sanderson struck her from behind while she was watching her kids ski down the slope in her evidence.

Two skis slid into each other as she was skiing, pulling her legs apart, she recalled. “And then I felt a body slamming against me.” Paltrow testified in court, “My brain was attempting to make sense of what was happening.” “I questioned, ‘Is this a joke? Is someone acting inappropriately?”

“I just remember everything was great and then I heard something I’ve never heard at a ski resort,” Sanderson said when he took the witness stand on Monday. He continued by claiming that everything turned dark after he was struck in the back between the shoulder blades. Ski and medical specialists were both called to the stand as witnesses during the trial.
