Is there a new round in the ski accident trial?
Will Gwyneth Paltrow’s skiing accident trial be repeated soon? The opposing lawyer is currently considering an appeal.
There could soon be a new edition of the skiing accident process with Gwyneth Paltrow (50). As the portal “TMZ” reports, draws the doctor Dr. Terry Sanderson, who claims he was injured by the actress, is considering an appeal. His lawyer has already made a statement about yesterday’s verdict: “We do not agree with the result and will consider all possibilities.” A new procedure or an appeal is also currently being considered: “All of these things are on the table.”
According to the lawyer, a number of mistakes had been made in the previous proceedings. For example, the judge allowed Paltrow’s attorneys to snoop into Sanderson’s past. But this has nothing to do with the collision on the runway, and as Sanderson’s lawyer he has nothing to do with it Paltrow’s allowed to investigate the past.
Gwyneth Paltrow won the trial on Friday. After eight days of testimony, a Utah grand jury ruled in the retired optometrist’s lawsuit sandersonthat the actress and entrepreneur is not to blame.
A counterclaim sought one dollar in damages
The 76-year-old had claimed Paltrow ran him over at Deer Valley Resort in 2016, causing him ongoing health problems. He initially sought $3.3 million in damages in 2019, but that lawsuit was dismissed. A second process was now about the sum of 300,000 US dollars (about 280,000 euros).
Paltrow filed a countersuit, demanding a token dollar. The actress’ attorney told the court that Sanderson drove into his client in the accident, not the other way around.
Hollywood star is “satisfied”
In a statement she shared on an Instagram story after the trial, Paltrow said she was “satisfied with the outcome and appreciates the hard work of Judge Holmberg and the jury,” thanking them for their care in handling this case. According to BBC News, Sanderson said the verdict was “very disappointing”.
