Gwyneth Paltrow sued for $3M over ski and run lawsuit

He suffered a concussion and had four broken ribs.


In the lawsuit filed, Paltrow's actions were claimed to be the product of "carelessness and cruelty." The Cut reports that Sanderson's lawyers were keen to press National Ski Area Association's Skier Responsibility Code. Sanderson's lawyer Robert B Skyes said, "What Miss Paltrow did that day was knock Terry Sanderson down, pick herself up, dust herself off and ski off." The suit claims that due to ski and run Sanderson faced, "pain, suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, emotional distress, disfigurement, anxiety, depression, and several other health problems." 

Slashing down all the claims, Paltrow's representative said about the suit, "This lawsuit is complete without merit. Anyone who reads the facts will realize that."
