Gwyneth Paltrow’s lawyers have leaned on experts to mount their defence about her 2016 ski collision with a retired optometrist who sued her years later.
Paltrow ski collision trial continues with defence
Gwyneth Paltrow’s lawyers have continued to rely mostly on experts to mount their defence on the seventh day of the trial over her 2016 ski collision with a 76-year-old retired optometrist.
Paltrow’s defence team on Wednesday called to the stand a radiologist, a neurologist, a neuropsychologist and a forensic psychologist, leaning on medical analysis rather than the testimony of the actress-turned-lifestyle influencer’s friends or husband in order to make their case.
In the final hour of their last full day to call witnesses though, they called Terry Sanderson, the man suing Paltrow, back to the witness stand.
More than just a display of their financial investment in the case, Paltrow’s team allotting most of their time to expert testimony is a gamble. Throughout the trial, bombshell testimony from Paltrow and Sanderson has engaged the jury, while hours of jargon-dense medical testimony has tested their endurance.
