Shae Sanderson impersonates Gwyneth Paltrow about her unknowing father’s ski accident
Jurors in the bombshell trial found Gwyneth Paltrow was not at fault for the 2016 ski accident.
The case dragged on for years after retired optometrist Terry Sanderson, 76, raised allegations against Ms Paltrow in a 2019 case. Mr Sanderson claimed the Hollywood star hit him on the slopes at Deer Valley Resort near Park City, Utah, back on February 26, 2016.
On Thursday, jurors returned a verdict for Ms Paltrow after two hours of deliberation, effectively awarding Ms Paltrow a symbolic $1. They found that Mr. Sanderson, who was seeking $300,000 in damages, had a 100% chance that the ski was at fault.
Mr Sanderson had claimed in court that the conflict had left him with a permanent traumatic brain injury which had “deprived him of the enjoyment of his life”.
During arguments on Thursday, Mr Sanderson’s attorney Lawrence Buhler advised jurors that his client was estimated to be suffering $33 per hour from cognitive decline since seven years of the accident, and is expected to live ten years.
Meanwhile, defense attorney Steven Owens told the court his client was “hitting the wallet” for Mr Sanderson and his family.

Gwyneth Paltrow has been cleared of any wrongdoing in a US lawsuit over a 2016 skiing collision, brought by optometrist Terry Sanderson.
After a high-profile two-week trial in Utah, jurors returned a verdict in favor of the Oscar-winning actress after two more hours.
Mr Sanderson had sued Ms Paltrow over a collision while skiing at Deer Valley in Utah over seven years ago, which left him with several broken ribs and severe head injuries.
She denied the claim and accused Mr Sanderson of crashing into her, causing her to lose “half a day of skiing” with her family and being “sore”.
On Thursday, jurors placed “100%” fault on Mr Sanderson for the crash and found him responsible for the injuries Ms Paltrow suffered.
They awarded the actress a symbolic recovery of one dollar in damages.
Ms Paltrow and Mr Sanderson, who both gave evidence at the trial, were present in court for the sentencing.
The actress was wearing a blue blazer, white shirt and white pants, and did not seem to act as she was pronounced, but let out a long breath.
As he left the hall he touched Mr. Sanderson on the shoulder and whispered something to him.
He previously said he felt “sad” because of his safety after the incident, but insisted it was not his “fault” and said he was “victorious”.
Mr Sanderson’s lawyers had previously suggested to the jury that he was entitled to more than three million dollars in damages.

Gwyneth Paltrow was not at fault for the ski encounter, the jury found
Jurors found Terry Sanderson at fault in a collision with Ms. Paltrow while driving to the luxury Deer Valley Resort near Park City, Utah, on February 26, 2016.
The decision comes two weeks after complex neurology and injury expert testimony on both sides of the brain. Witnesses, Deer Valley workers, Ms Paltrow’s sons Apple and Moses, and Mr Sanderson’s daughter also testified under oath.
The decision effectively gives Ms. Paltrow a $1 tip.

‘You kill genius;’
When he was asked when he left the forum what had constituted the event, he said: “It must have been an accident, because he simply introduced the truth of the accident. There was nothing that he did not want to deviate from and still, and that is why I brought it.
“I wanted to see if justice prevails in these situations, but it becomes a character of murder…, what you thought long ago in your life, which thirty years ago, forty years ago, would have been in vain”
He added: “You took some credit from a famous person … who wants to take on celebrity? No wonder I hesitated. It is difficult. Who wants to do this? [versus] He who learns verse, learns to play another’s parts, Believable, believable, wins prizes? Who wants to go this way? Asked if she thinks Paltrow is lying, she said: “I believe she thinks she’s telling the truth… but I know for sure that I’ve denied that I’m implying anything false.
He said he was very disappointed with the decision, but thought Paltrow “pretty much” liked him according to the decision.
