We know the verdict in Gwyneth Paltrow’s case and it’s the end of a bizarre saga

It’s the end of a strange saga to say the least!

In what looked like a media circus and a grotesque Hollywood sketch at times, the civil trial of Gwyneth Paltrow, who was sued by a man who accused her of seriously injuring him during a skiing collision, ended with a favorable verdict for the star.

The jury composed of her “peers” has indeed retained her version of events, as well as that of her children and witnesses from her clan, to the detriment of the man in question, the plaintiff, Terry Sanderson.

The latter is therefore recognized as the culprit in this case of ski accident in Utah, and ordered to pay $1 symbolic to Gwyneth Paltrow.

The jury declares that “100%” of the responsibility of the case is on Sanderson, to the great relief of Paltrow.

The latter offered a few words to her accuser at the exit of the courthouse…

“I wish you well,” she reportedly whispered Sanderson, reports The Guardian and Entertainment Tonight.
