Gwyneth Paltrow’s attorney painted an unflattering picture of the retired eye doctor suing his Oscar-winning client during opening statements in a Utah courtroom on Tuesday.

Terry Sanderson, 76, is suing the ‘Emma’ actress over a skiing accident in 2016. Both parties claim the other was at fault.

While Paltrow says the skirmish caused by Sanderson left her upset and left only minor injuries, Sanderson says Paltrow’s neglect on the tracks left him with brain damage so severe that his personality and his behavior changed after the accident.

Paltrow’s lead defense attorney, Stephen Owens, ridiculed Sanderson’s claims before the eight-person jury in Park City, Utah.
