Transcript for Emotional testimony at Gwyneth Paltrow trial
- Good morning, Gwyneth.
- The man who accuses Gwyneth Paltrow of violently crashing into him on a Utah ski slope--
- Plaintiff call Mr. Terry Sanderson.
- --took the stand in a civil lawsuit against the Hollywood star.
- I got hit in my back so hard. Serious, serious smack. Never been hit that hard, and I'm flying. I'm absolutely flying.
- Terry Sanderson, a retired optometrist, said his physical and mental health have changed since the accident.
- I'm like living another life now. I can't ski anymore. Of course, I'm desperately to be close to my family and my girls. It's been more difficult.
- The defense called Paltrow's ski instructor, Eric Christiansen, to the stand. He's also named in the lawsuit.
- As soon as he passed us and I wasn't concerned with him hitting us, then I turned back towards Moses. But at that point, he was very close to Ms. Paltrow.
- Christensen was accused of falsifying the initial report and causing Sanderson emotional distress.
- We were supposed to be polite to everyone, and I was polite to Mr. Sanderson that day.
- Were you a bully to Mr. Sanderson?
- I was not.
- Paltrow on the stand last Friday insisted the crash wasn't her fault.
- I said you skied directly into my [BLEEP] back. And he said, oh, sorry, sorry. I'm sorry. Mr. Sanderson categorically hit me on that ski slope, and that is the truth.
- Sanderson is suing Paltrow for $300,000. Paltrow is countersuing for $1 and legal fees. Paltrow's husband and kids are expected to testify, and the trial could wrap up by Thursday.
