A jury has dismissed the complaint of a retired optometrist who sued Gwyneth Paltrow over injuries he sustained when they crashed into each other while skiing.
Jury finds Gwyneth Paltrow not at fault for ski crash
Gwyneth Paltrow wasn’t to blame for a 2016 collision with a retired optometrist on a beginner run at a posh Utah ski resort during a family vacation, a jury has decided, following a live-streamed trial that became a pop culture fixation.
A jury on Thursday awarded Paltrow $US1 ($A1.50) – a symbolic amount she asked for in order to show it wasn’t about money – and delivered her the vindication she sought when she opted to take it to trial rather than settle out of court.
“I felt that acquiescing to a false claim compromised my integrity,” Paltrow said in a statement released by her representatives that she also posted as an Instagram story for her 8.3 million followers. She also thanked the judge and jury for their work.
As Paltrow left court she touched Terry Sanderson’s shoulder and told him, “I wish you well,” he told reporters outside court.
