Sanderson said Paltrow injured him during a “hit-and-run” ski crash that left him with severe injuries, including permanent brain damage. The man said Paltrow ran into him and then took off despite him lying on the ground injured.

Sanderson said an instructor at the resort, who was with Paltrow, filed a false report claiming he was responsible NOT the actress.

His lawsuit said the accident not only caused physical pain but emotional distress. Sanderson’s original complaint sought $3.1 million in damages.

Paltrow countersued accusing Sanderson of being to blame. She used the report written by the instructor to support her stance.

Sanderson said his “famous” comment, a few hours “after his concussion and painful rib fractures” does not have any relevance.

He argued the text would only be used by Paltrow to make him look like “some kind of gold digger hoping to cash in on a case against a celebrity.”

He said, “That “fact,” even if true, is not of consequence here. Terry Sanderson was struck hard from behind by Gwyneth Paltrow.”

Further, he demanded the jury not hear his initial demand of $3.1 million. As first reported, Paltrow had her own issues ahead of the trial.

The Avengers star demanded the jury not be shown her entire videotaped deposition.
