Gwyneth Paltrow’s lawyer filed a complaint after the actress was photographed in court
Gwyneth Paltrow’s skiing collision trial entered its third day Thursday.
The Hollywood star and Goop CEO is accused of hitting Terry Sanderson, 76, on a ski slope at the Deer Valley resort in Park City in February 2016.
Mr Sanderson said Paltrow slapped him in a “full body hit” which left him with “permanent traumatic brain injury, four broken ribs, pain, suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, emotional distress and breakdown”. . Paltrow, meanwhile, said it was Ms Sanderson who bumped into her – and that she knew enough after the crash to send an email to her daughter saying she was “famous”.
On the third day of the trial in Park City, Utah, psycho-neurologist Dr Alina Fong rebuked defense claims that Mr Sanderson was exaggerating his symptoms to exploit Ms Paltrow’s celebrity status and wealth.
Fong, who opened a clinic in Boston in partnership with Tom Brady, diagnosed Mr Sanderson with PCS (persistent post-concussive symptoms), which he said occurred after the accident.
The experts hired by Ms Paltrow have yet to testify, but when asked about their doubts about Mr Sanderson’s PCS diagnosis, Dr Fong said he believed he was the only expert to call. Previously, Ms Paltrow’s lawyers said in opening arguments that Mr Sanderson’s claims were “utter BS”.
“There’s a big difference between going to someone’s chart in another state or across the world and having a patient in front of me crying,” Dr Fong said in a deposition shown to the jury. “I think it’s very easy to criticize someone from a distance and it’s completely different when you’re in the trenches with that patient, trying to get them help.”
He added: “They have a lot of opinions and it just shows that they’re not concussion experts, specifically traumatic brain injury experts and If I’m being completely honest, a lot of their opinions can be easily disproved just by going to online and viewing. CDC recommendations for clinicians on how to treat concussions.”
Mr Sanderson is seeking $300,000 from Paltrow while he is asking for $1 in damages and to cover his legal fees.

The actor’s lawyer Stephen Owens described Paltrow’s family members as part of his skiing group when the incident took place on 26 February 2016.
“He, Brad, now his wife from whom you will hear, his daughter Apple, from whom you will hear, Moses, from whom you will hear,” he said.
