Gwyneth Paltrow Trial: Daughter Apple Martin Says Mom Was “Shaken Up” After Ski Crash
In court documents obtained by E! News at the time, Sanderson alleged Paltrow skied into him, causing him to fall “down hard, causing a brain surgery, four broken ribs and other injuries.” He further alleged “severe psychological problems including fear, anxiety and depression,” as a result of the incident.
In a countersuit, Paltrow claimed that Sanderson was the one who collided into her and “blamed her for it in an attempt to exploit her celebrity and wealth.”
“She was enjoying skiing with her family on vacation in Utah, when Plaintiff—who was uphill from Ms. Paltrow—plowed into her back,” her filing read. “She sustained a full ‘body blow.’ Ms. Paltrow was angry with Plaintiff, and said so. Plaintiff apologized.”
According to NBC News, Sanderson is suing Paltrow for $300,000, an amount that has decreased from his first request of $3.1 million. As for Paltrow, according to court documents, she is countersuing Sanderson for “only symbolic damages in the amount of $1, plus her costs and attorneys’ fees to defend this meritless claim.”
