Gwyneth Paltrow is not happy that cameras are being pointed at her while she's in court over a 2016 ski crash with an elderly man
Gwyneth Paltrow had issues with cameras pointed at her during a trial over a ski crash in 2016.
Her lawyer complained to the Utah court about the camera, saying it went against "court decorum."
The actress may have to pay $300,000 in damages to Terry Sanderson, 76.
Gwyneth Paltrow took offense to a camera being pointed at her during a trial in Utah on Wednesday, where she's battling accusations that she seriously injured a man in a ski collision.
The trial will decide whether the actress is responsible for injuring Terry Sanderson, 76, in a 2016 ski crash at Utah's Deer Valley Resort. Sanderson said the crash left him with broken ribs and permanent brain damage, per court documents. Sanderson is suing Paltrow for $300,000.
On the second day of the trial on Wednesday, Paltrow's attorney Steve Owens complained to the court that there was a "new camera pointed directly" at Paltrow. Owens said the camera's placement violated a court decorum order.
At this point, the "Shakespeare in Love" actress took off her gold-rimmed glasses and shook her head while glaring directly at one such camera, a displeased expression on her face.
Owens added: "This has been a problem, for instance, reporters being in front of my client's car going out yesterday, cameras in her face, like inches away."
"I'm mad," Owens later added. "I want them to comply," he said, referring to members of the media present in the courtroom.
Cameras are a common fixture in high-profile trials. At Johnny Depp's trial versus his ex-wife Amber Heard, cameras documented key moments in the proceedings, some of which went viral on social media.
Sanderson, 76, has accused Paltrow of crashing into him from behind while on the slopes at the ski resort in Utah. Sanderson's lawyer Lawrence Buhler said Paltrow "bolted" from the scene of the accident, which Paltrow denies.
Sanderson, a retired optometrist, initially sued Paltrow for $3.1 million in 2019, but later dropped the number down to $300,000, per CNN. Paltrow countersued Sanderson for negligence, accusing him of crashing into her. She's claiming $1 worth of damages.
Paltrow and Sanderson's lawyers did not immediately respond to Insider's requests for comment outside regular business hours.
