Gwyneth Paltrow (right) and her attorney Stephen Owens (left) after a judge raised an objection that she was “lumped together with other celebrities” during closing arguments in their negligence trial, which ended in March in Park City, Utah went, had expired 30th, 2023.

Gwyneth Paltrow, founder and CEO of lifestyle brand GOOP and “Sliding Doors” actress, is being sued in a Utah court by a retired optometrist over a 2016 skiing accident at Deer Valley Resort. Paltrow is also suing Terry Sanderson over the incident in a lawsuit that ended Thursday in Park City’s Third Circuit Court.

The closing arguments went all the way.

Aside from rehashing key pieces of evidence and testimony, Paltrow’s lead attorney Stephen Owens said his client lost valuable bonding time with the components of what would eventually become their new family. Sanderson’s attorneys said he lost quite a bit more.

“February 26, 2016, like many, many other days in his life, was anticipating a fun day of skiing,” plaintiffs’ lead counsel, Robert Sykes, said during closing arguments. “He never returned home that night as the same Terry. He never came home – figuratively speaking. Terry tried to get off that mountain – but he really is still there. A part of Terry will forever be on the Bandana Run – figuratively speaking.”

“We hope you will help bring Terry home from that mountain today with a fair judgment,” Sykes later added in a direct plea to the jury. Closing arguments get emotional in Gwyneth Paltrow trial
