Innocent Gwyneth Paltrow. Wins Skiing Incident Trial

Gwyneth Paltrow has won her skiing accident case against retired doctor Terry Sanderson. He claimed the actress and Goop founder caused the 2016 crash in which Sanderson suffered brain damage and broken ribs.

The jury found Sanderson, 76, was '100 per cent' at fault for the crash at the luxury Utah ski resort seven years ago. It took just two hours and 20 minutes for the jury to reach its verdict on Thursday.

Paltrow, the 50-year-old founder of luxury wellness brand Goop, is worth $200m (£161m) and won an Oscar for her role in Shakespeare in Love. Opposing party Sanderson, 76, is a retired, twice-divorced physician from Utah whose net worth is unknown.

Sanderson must pay Ms Paltrow a token $1 in damages - but must also pay his and Gwyneth's legal costs, which could run into the hundreds of thousands of dollars.

She looked nervous as the verdict was read and sat with folded hands at her desk. When the court clerk pronounced Sanderson guilty, she nodded in appreciation.

As Paltrow left the courthouse, she walked over and touched Sanderson's shoulder and said "I wish you all the best."

Sanderson himself narrated the conversation to reporters.
