Gwyneth Paltrow Testifies in Ski Collision Trial: What She Said
Gwyneth Paltrow testified in a civil trial on Friday regarding a skiing accident that occurred in 2016 at the Deer Valley Resort in Park City, Utah. Terry Sanderson, who was skiing at the time, has accused Paltrow of crashing into him and causing him serious injuries. Paltrow, however, claims that she did not cause the accident and has filed a countersuit against Sanderson, alleging that he skied into her.
Here’s what Paltrow said on the stand:
A Family Trip: Paltrow was skiing with her two kids, as well as with Brad Falchuk (who was her boyfriend at the time, now her husband) and his two kids. Each child had their own ski instructor, and they had been to Deer Valley Resort twice before. The incident with Sanderson happened on the first day of their trip.
How She Described What Happened: Paltrow testified that two skis came in between her skis, forcing her legs apart, and then “there was a body pressing against me and there was a very strange grunting noise” from behind. She described the collision as being a slow fall and that when they both came crashing down together, their skis were tangled up.
Sanderson’s Condition: Paltrow said she did not ask about the condition of Sanderson after they collided, testifying that she did not know the extent of his injuries and “thought it was very minor on the day.” Sanderson claims that Paltrow hit him, causing a brain injury and four broken ribs.
After the Collision: Paltrow said the incident was “absolutely not” a hit-and-run. Sanderson claims Paltrow and her ski instructor skied away after the incident without getting him medical care. She testified that she stayed on the mountain “long enough for him to say that he was OK” and to stand up.
Risky Behavior: Paltrow says she wasn’t engaged in “risky behavior” at the time of the crash. She said she wouldn’t ski in a risky way “with my children there or without my children there.”
Legal Questions: Sanderson’s legal team tried to use previous media appearances in which Paltrow discussed being clumsy to discredit her testimony, but the judge ultimately would not allow it. It had apparently renewed a debate between the two parties.
In conclusion, Gwyneth Paltrow testified in her civil trial regarding a skiing accident that occurred in 2016 at the Deer Valley Resort in Park City, Utah.

Gwyneth Paltrow is facing a lawsuit from Terry Sanderson, who claims that Paltrow caused him a brain injury and four broken ribs while skiing. Sanderson alleges that Paltrow and her ski instructor left the scene without providing him with medical care.
During questioning, attorney Kristin VanOrman asked Paltrow if the $1 she is seeking in damages was inspired by Taylor Swift’s 2017 case. Paltrow responded that the damages were symbolic and would actually be more. VanOrman suggested that Paltrow was seeking that amount based on Swift’s case, where the pop star won a lawsuit against a radio host who had groped her at a meet-and-greet event. The radio host was required to pay $1 in damages. However, Paltrow stated that she was not aware of Swift’s case at the time. When asked if she was good friends with Taylor Swift, Paltrow responded that they were friendly but not very close.
Terry Sanderson’s legal team attempted to use Paltrow’s previous comments about being clumsy to discredit her testimony, but the judge ultimately did not allow it. Attorney Kristin VanOrman asked Paltrow if she agreed that she was accident-prone, which led to a bench meeting between the judge and the legal teams. The judge ruled that there was no testimony that clumsiness contributed to the accident and therefore the interviews in question would not be considered. Paltrow’s team expressed frustration with the opposing legal team’s attempt to use the articles and video, which had already been rejected by the judge.

Paltrow Responds to Allegations
When asked about the condition of Sanderson after the collision, Paltrow stated that she did not ask anyone at Deer Valley Resort because she did not know the extent of his injuries at the time. She also denied causing tension between Sanderson’s family members, which his daughter had testified about earlier in the day.
Paltrow expressed that she feels the lawsuit against her is unfair, but she is prepared to defend herself in court. As a victim of the crash, Paltrow’s focus was not on the person who perpetrated it, but rather on her own well-being.
