Gwyneth Paltrow had no reason to lie, says Juror
Gwyneth Paltrow’s civil suit against Terry Sanderson over a 2016 ski collision has ended, and one of the jurors in the trial is now speaking out. Juror No. 11, Samantha Imrie, shared her thoughts on the trial with ABC News, stating that Paltrow’s testimony was convincing and that the evidence presented during the trial helped her reach a verdict. Although Sanderson was telling his truth, Imrie believes some of his claims were distorted due to other factors. The juror also noted that she didn’t want the public to think that Paltrow’s win was only because of her celebrity status, stating that the verdict was based on evidence and the law.
During the trial, expert witnesses like Dr. Irving Scher testified on behalf of Paltrow’s defense team, which helped Imrie reach her verdict. She also mentioned that social media photos of Sanderson traveling the world following the accident did not help his case. In Paltrow’s favor, the eight-person jury took just a couple of hours to reach their unanimous decision. Although the trial involved a high-profile celebrity, Imrie’s background as a nurse helped her remain focused on the facts of the case.
In the end, Sanderson was found to be at fault in the 2016 ski collision at Utah’s Deer Valley Resort and was ordered to pay Paltrow $1 in damages plus legal fees. Paltrow expressed satisfaction with the outcome and thanked the jury and Judge Holmberg for their thoughtfulness in handling the case.
The trial has gained significant media attention, with major news outlets covering the proceedings and thousands of viewers tuning in to the live stream. However, Imrie emphasized that the verdict was based solely on the evidence and law, not Paltrow’s celebrity status.
While the case has received significant media attention, the verdict was based on the evidence and the law, not Paltrow’s fame. The trial lasted eight days and involved expert testimony from witnesses such as Dr. Irving Scher, who testified on Paltrow’s behalf. Ultimately, the jury found Sanderson at fault and awarded Paltrow $1 in damages plus legal fees.
