Kristin Vanorman goes viral on the internet for grilling actress Gwyneth Paltrow. In the ongoing ski collision trial, Gwyneth Paltrow took the stand on March 24 to testify. Terry Sanderson sued Paltrow for $3.1 million in 2019 on the grounds that she collided with him during a skiing accident in 2016. The accident resulted in a permanent traumatic brain injury, Sanderson said. Sanderson countersued Paltrow and claimed that the latter had struck her instead. In addition to seeking reimbursement of her legal fees, the actress sought $1 in damages. During Paltrow’s testimony on Friday, Sanderson’s lawyer Kristin Vanorman made headlines for grilling her.

She claimed Sanderson struck her instead while on the ski slope, not colliding with her. This was the main point of the testimony. Her knowledge of ski rules and the events leading up to the ski accident were the topics of Kristin Vanorman’s nearly hour-long questioning. After a skiing collision, Vanorman asked Paltrow if she knew how contact information should be exchanged. Upon Paltrow’s assertion that Sanderson was at fault and her instructor told her to provide Sanderson with her information, the attorney asked her: Do you know that skiing requires sharing information in the event of a collision?

Sanderson claims she collided with him and caused him to suffer permanent brain damage during a 2016 accident at the Deer Valley Resort in Park City, Utah. Paltrow countersued Sanderson, claiming that he had crashed into her instead. Her legal fees were to be repaid and she demanded $1 in damages.

Paltrow was grilled during her testimony by Sanderson’s lawyer Kristin Vanorman on Friday. A key point of Paltrow’s testimony was that she denied colliding with Sanderson and claimed the latter struck her on the ski slope instead. As they spoke, Vanorman spent nearly an hour asking the actress about the events preceding the ski accident and what she knew about ski rules. After questioning Paltrow about her relationship with Taylor Swift, Vanorman asked if her $1 countersuit was inspired by Swift’s 2017 case against radio DJ David Mueller. It was even suggested that Gwyneth Paltrow send Swift “intimate gifts” for Christmas before the judge said she could choose to decline the question. Kristin Vanorman told Gwyneth Paltrow during her depositions that the former “lied under oath several times” during the trial, and she dropped her jaw. Vanorman changed her words from “slanderous” to “prior inconsistent statements” when Paltrow’s lawyer called it “slanderous.” The Paltrow team still hasn’t called any witnesses. Recently, Kristin Vanorman went viral online after grilling Gwyneth Paltrow during a ski collision trial involving a 2016 ski accident in Utah’s Deer Valley Resort. Twitter users also shared moments during Vanorman’s testimony when he interacted with Paltrow. Terry Sanderson’s attorneys mentioned at the end of Friday’s proceedings that they would likely have the plaintiff testify on Monday before resting their case.
