Since Johnny Depp and Amber Heard resolved their dispute in court, interest in celebrity litigation appears to have increased rather than diminished among fans.
The Gwyneth Paltrow v. Terry Sanderson lawsuit has also generated a lot of online discussion over the past week.
Remember how the 76-year-old ophthalmologist, who is now retired, said the actress hit him hard on a ski run before “leaving him all alone on the snow.”
Terry initially asked Gwyneth for an astonishing $3.1 million in restitution. The actress counterclaimed while entering a plea of not guilty.
Nonetheless, the ophthalmologist persisted. He returned to court and convinced the judge to lower the demanded damages to a far more reasonable $300,000.
The trial started on March 21 and continued every day. And Gwyneth showed up in person to each one.
After two hours of testimony and 20 minutes of deliberation, the jury chose to reach a verdict last Thursday, clearing Paltrow of all accusations.
Gwyneth walked over to Terry and wished him luck after the judge announced the verdict. And he thanked the actress for that.
In spite of the fact that she could have easily paid the requisite sum, Paltrow revealed why she chose to go to court alone.
“I believed that if I accepted this, I would support the untrue accusations made against me. It damaged my moral character. I am happy with the outcome and grateful for the judge and jury’s hard work. Gwyneth said, “I appreciate their thoughtful approach to this problem.
