Gwyneth Paltrow is on trial for allegedly skiing out of control and crashing into a retired doctor during a 2016 Deer Valley, Utah, vacation and is countersuing for $1 in damages as well as her attorneys’ fees, claiming that Sanderson was the one who actually caused the collision.
Actress Gwyneth Paltrow is currently facing a civil trial after being accused of crashing into a retired doctor while skiing in Utah back in 2016. Terry Sanderson, the alleged victim, claims that Paltrow left him with a traumatic brain injury, broken ribs, and a loss of enjoyment of life. He is seeking more than $3 million in damages, while Paltrow countersued for a symbolic $1 in damages and her attorneys’ fees, claiming that it was Sanderson who caused the collision.
The trial began on March 21, and Paltrow has been making appearances in the courtroom wearing various outfits. On the first day of the trial, she wore a cream turtleneck sweater, while fans were quick to notice her oversized reading glasses, which some compared to serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer’s eyeglasses. Paltrow later bundled up with a green coat and stuck to the cream color scheme on day 2. For day 3, she switched to a buttoned-up gray suit.
On March 24, the actress took the stand wearing a long navy skirt paired with a black long-sleeved polo shirt and chunky black boots underneath a long matching coat. Despite the ongoing trial, Paltrow has her family’s support, and her children, Moses and Apple, as well as her husband, Brad Falchuk, are expected to testify in her defense. The trial is expected to last through March 30.
Sanderson alleges that Paltrow was skiing out of control when she crashed into him, leaving him with severe injuries, while Paltrow argues that Sanderson was the one who caused the collision. It remains to be seen what the outcome of the trial will be, but for now, Paltrow will continue to make appearances in her courtroom attire as proceedings carry on.
