Gwyneth Paltrow Skiing Accident – Latest News: Actor Testifies He Thought Skiing Accident Was ‘Sexual Assault’

Shay Sanderson accuses Gwyneth Paltrow of neglecting her father in mountain ski accident

Gwyneth Paltrow says she briefly thought the 2016 ski confrontation was actually a sexual assault and “froze” when a set of skis suddenly “forced my legs apart.”

Terry Sanderson, 76, alleges the Hollywood star was hit by a ski slope at Deer Valley Resort in Park City, Utah in February 2016, causing him “permanent traumatic brain injury, four broken ribs, pain, suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, emotional distress and disfigurement.”

Meanwhile, Paltrow says Mr Sanderson bumped into her – and later told her daughter he was “famous”. The coup mogul is expected to be called on the stand by Mr Sanderson’s lawyers today.

In court on Thursday, Mr Sanderone’s lawyer, Robert Sykes, attacked the star’s legal team after another daughter asked her daughter about their father’s misconduct.

Mr Sykes said Paltrow’s team was only going that route because the actor was “concerned about the way this case is going”.

“You can’t attack someone’s character because his client is worried about the way this case is going,” he said.

Mr Sanderson is seeking $300,000 from Paltrow, while he is demanding a symbolic $1 in compensation and his legal fees.

Terry Sanderson’s attorney, Gwyneth Paltrow, has said she is “concerned” with the way the trial is proceeding.


Gwyneth Paltrow says ski accident ‘victim’ as she begins testimony

When Gwyneth Paltrow began testifying at her US trial, she repeatedly insisted she was the “victim” of the ski accident.

The Oscar-winning actress said she “didn’t believe” previous witness statements and that her version of events was “certainly” true.

He is accused of “hitting” Mr Sanderson on a ski slope and falling on top of him, causing him to suffer multiple broken ribs and severe concussion.

Ms Paltrow has denied the allegations, saying she was suing Mr Sanderson after he bumped into her.

The actress, who entered the witness box wearing a dark blue skirt and button-down blouse, began her evidence by describing herself as an “intermediate” skier who was familiar with the rules of skiing.

He denied that he had engaged in “dangerous behaviour” on the day of the collision, insisting repeatedly that Mr Sanderson had skidded from behind.

“I was confused at first, I didn’t know what was going on,” he recounts the incident.

“Walking down a ski slope is a very strange thing. I froze and after a few seconds I must say I was very upset.

He added: “(I thought) Is this a practical joke? Is someone doing something fishy?… My mind was racing to figure out what was going on.

Expert Testifies About Ski Hit-and-Run

On Thursday jurors heard evidence from Dr Richard Bohan, who said Mr Sanderson’s injuries could only have been caused by being struck from behind.

“He was hit from the side and behind and remember that person landed on him. People who fall don’t get rib fractures… it takes something else,” he said.

“If you have a choice between Mr. Sanderson hitting Ms. Paltrow or Ms. Paltrow hitting Mr. Sanderson, you have to choose that Ms. Paltrow hits Mr. Sanderson from behind and falls on top of him to account for the rib fractures.”

“If you compare the two scenarios … there is only one scenario where enough force is used to break those ribs, which is Ms. Paltrow hitting Mr. Sanderson from behind and falling to the ground.

“In essence he was like a cushion, if you will.”

Ms. Paltrow claims in her filing that Mr. Sanderson’s injuries were exaggerated because his doctor conducted an examination that revealed no impairment in his cognitive function, according to the claim.
