Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

She's counter sueing .... interesting to see whether there were any witnesses to decide who was the downhill skier !!

Craig Ramon, who was skiing with Mr Sanderson, said he witnessed Paltrow hitting him in the back, knocking him over and falling on top of him.

Sounds like there's at least one witness

Yebbut Paltrow had an instructor/guide with her who no doubt won't be spinning a "she's guilty" version of events after he alledgedly did a bunch of yelling at the vic then skied off with her.

Is the victim claiming for damages for pain and suffering following an unconscious coupling?

Strongly suspect a lot of lawyers are rubbing their hands in glee at this one where I suspect there will be his side of the story backed up by his mates and her side backed up by her instructor then the truth that no one who wasn't there to witness it will ever get to know about.

@davkt, and there we have it. Very hard to apportion blame in ski accidents without independent or video evidence. I'd think she'd better be a hell of a good tipper if I was to perjure myself but equally I'd be reluctant to go in with a mate on shaking down a celeb bogusly.

Quote:
Paltrow's 18-page case states that it was Sanderson who struck her from behind, delivering a "body blow", he then apologised to her and assured her that he was not hurt.

It states "she was enjoying skiing with her family on vacation in Utah" when he "ploughed into her back".

"She was shaken and upset, and quit skiing for the day even though it was still morning," it says.

"He was not knocked out. Immediately after the collision, he stood up and addressed Ms Paltrow. Ms Paltrow expressed her anger that he ran into her, and he apologised."


Looks like its a he said, she said, her witness said, his witness said, kind of story

Quote:
"The case says because her injuries "were relatively minor, she seeks only symbolic damages in the amount of $1, plus her costs and attorneys' fees to defend this meritless claim".


whilst she is seeking symbolic damages, her costs and her attorney's fees will really wrack up

It's a defence by countersuit - fairly classic in the US - hope that the prospect of big bankrupting legal bills scare off the plaintiff with shallow pockets. I believe Trump is more than familiar with such tactics.

Yup, and all down to who can afford the most expensive lawyer, which in this case is probably Gwyneth

You could also argue the point that because she has a few bob it might be a factor in starting the lawsuit in the first place.

But when she allegedly hit him and he picked himself up that memory has surely gone?, or does it magically return later? I get he could remember before the fall and at some time after the fall, but the actual fall itself?

I say this partly just taking the pi$$ and partly truthfully and from experience. I did a reasonable sized jump on my skis and landed badly in a face plant. I can remember going up the ramp and can remember laying on the ground, but the bit in between has completely vanished. It was also the first time I had to clean blood out of my googles. Shocked

Oooh I did that on a dry slope jump. Tiny little kicker, I hit it way too fast. I remember the run down, then nothing until finding myself sitting in the centre office talking to one of the staff and having no idea how I got there. I must have lost 5 or 10 minutes. I have no idea who piloted me in that time but it wasn't me Shocked
