The 50-year-old actress, Gwyneth Paltrow is currently engaged in a civil trial in a Utah courtroom over a ski collision that happened in 2016. While the trial has already started, RadarOnline obtained some court documents in which her legal team demanded that a strict protocol must be placed before the actress appear in the trial.

As per the motion, the team stated,

Defendant is a famous actress and well-known celebrity, including receiving an Academy Award for Best Actress.”

Due to her esteemed fame and recognition, she demanded the court restrict the media on the basis that the reporters would “overwhelm” the court. She also added that some strict rules must be followed regarding photography and filming of the trial. If it is not restricted, it might affect her brand, Goop especially when the brand has already gone through much.

It is reported that the actress believed that Terry Sanderson, who filed the lawsuit against her might be holding “a substantial risk of harming” her “business, brand, and well-being outside of this proceeding if highly publicized.”

For the same reasons, she appealed to the court to limit the press to “preserve the privacy and dignity” of the involved parties, jurors, and witnesses including her children. For the unversed, her teenage kids will be testifying in court.

The Iron Man star back in 2016 collided with Terry Sanderson, a retired optometrist at the Deer Valley Resort in Utah, United States. The latter blamed the actress for the collision and filed a lawsuit demanding $300,000 in damages.

He claimed that her reckless behavior resulted in the collision that broke his ribs and left him with a concussion.

In a recent proceeding, Terry Sanderson’s attorneys went on to say-

In the lawsuit, the retired optometrist’s lawyers claimed that her “out of control” skiing knocked him “down hard, knocking him out, and causing a brain injury, four broken ribs, and other serious injuries.”

As per the lawsuit, the actress “turned and skied” away even when she saw him lying seriously injured due to that collision.

However, Paltrow countersued Sanderson for $1 and attorney fees adding that he was the one to blame for the incident as he caused the crash. She also shared that the lawsuit by the victim is just an effort to exploit her wealth due to her celebrity status.
