Gwyneth Paltrow trial live: Ski crash victim Terri Sanderson says she can’t enjoy the flavors of alcohol

-

Gwyneth Paltrow’s lawyer filed a complaint after the actress was photographed in court

A retired optometrist who took actor Gwyneth Paltrow to trial in a ski crash has said he can no longer taste alcohol because of injuries sustained in the crash.

Hollywood star and Coop CEO Terry Sanderson, 76, is charged with a February 2016 ski slope at the Deer Valley Resort in Park City, Utah.

Mr Sanderson said Paltrow suffered a “full-body assault” that left him with a “permanent traumatic brain injury, four broken ribs, pain, suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, mental anguish and disfigurement”.

Meanwhile, Paltrow claims that Ms. Sanderson bumped into her.

Neuro-radiologist Dr. Windell Kippy testified Wednesday that the collision caused her to experience a “sudden” sharp decline in quality of life — she was unable to enjoy her pastimes.

“Terry was a high-functioning, active person…meeting groups, wine tasting, skiing, volunteering,” she said.

“After the accident, he suddenly became worse and stopped doing many of the activities he wanted to do.”

Mr Sanderson is seeking $300,000 from Paltrow, while he is seeking $1 in damages and legal fees.

Mr Sanderson’s experts say the 2016 ski collision caused the current symptoms

Wendell Gibby and Sam Goldstein — a radiologist and neuropsychologist — testified Wednesday.

“On a timeline, looking at all the records and evaluating Mr. Sanderson, this particular accident was an event that seriously led to the symptoms that he was presenting with,” Dr. Goldstein said. “Ski accident.”

Both sides blame the other for the collision, saying they were hit from behind, relying on a little-known Utah law that says anyone going downhill while skiing and snowboarding has the right of way.

Paltrow’s lawyers asked Judge Kent Holmberg to impose special restrictions throughout the actor-turned-wellness mogul’s trial, while she used a blue notebook to hide her face from view when entering and leaving the courtroom.

Gwyneth Paltrow has appeared in a US court for her alleged collision with skier Terry Sanderson, the Oscar-winning actress, at the Deer Valley resort in Utah in 2016.

Lawyers for Paltrow and Mr Sanderson, who is prosecuting her, made their opening statements in court on Tuesday.

Paltrow’s husband Brad Balchuk and her two children, Apple, 18, and Moses, 16, are also expected to testify.

The actor’s attorney, Stephen Owens, explained that members of Paltrow’s family were part of her skiing group when the incident occurred on 26 February 2016.

Who is Terry Sanderson?

On February 26, 2016, on the slopes of Flagstaff Mountain, part of the Deer Valley Resort near Park City, Utah, Paltrow and retired optometrist Dr. Terry Sanderson hit a beginner course known as the Bandana Run.

Mr Sanderson, 76, filed for damages in January 2019 and sought $300,000 in compensation for his injuries, prompting Paltrow to file a countersuit in which she is asking for a symbolic $1 and her legal costs if she wins.

Terry Sanderson heard ‘frenzied screams’ before the collision

Mr Sanderson accused Ms Paltrow of being “out of control” on the opening slope of the Bandana Run at Flagstaff Hill. According to Court TV.

He says he was knocked out because she hit him so hard. At a press conference in 2019, he said moments before the collision, “I heard a manic scream like it was King Kong in the jungle or something.”

He said at the time that he thought the speed with which Ms Paltrow was allegedly coming at him might explain the extent of her injuries. “A small pitty bullet can make a big hole,” he said Salt Lake Tribune.

At the press conference announcing the case, Mr Sanderson said he noticed several large “slow down” signs on the way down the Bandana Run, so he slowed down but kept up with the flow of other skiers coming down the slope.

In 2019, “it happened almost immediately,” he said. “I got hit on my back. … It felt like it drove me forward.

He said he remembers being unable to control himself when he went down.

“And then I remember at that point — out,” he said.
