Trial in Gwyneth Paltrow’s alleged ‘hit-and-run’ ski incident set to begin
The trial in a lawsuit that accuses Gwyneth Paltrow of a 2016 hit-and-run skiing incident in Park City, Utah, is set to begin this week.
In the lawsuit, retired optometrist Terry Sanderson alleges that the Goop founder was skiing downhill at the Deer Valley Resort when she collided with him, then skied away.
Sanderson was left behind with a brain injury and broken ribs, according to the lawsuit, which was filed in 2019.
Sanderson originally sought $3.1 million in damages, but the amount will now be set during the jury trial.
Both parties, including Paltrow, are expected to be present during the trial.
In her response to the complaint, Paltrow claimed it was actually the retired doctor who hit her from behind as he was the one moving downhill.
“She sustained a full ‘body blow.’ Ms. Paltrow was angry with Plaintiff, and said so.”
“Plaintiff apologized. She was shaken and upset, and quit skiing for the day even though it was still morning,”
A month after Sanderson filed his claim, Gwyneth filed a counter lawsuit, seeking “symbolic damages” of $1, plus legal fees. Any other amount granted would be donated to charity.
This isn’t the first time Paltrow has been sued over an alleged collision.
A couple claimed in a 2000 lawsuit that Paltrow had rear-ended them while driving a rental car, leaving the pair with “permanent and serious injuries.”
