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

Terry Sanderson, 76, is suing the “Emma” actress over a 2016 ski crash. Both sides claim the other was responsible.

While Paltrow says the skirmish caused by Sanderson upset her and left her with only minor injuries, Sanderson claims that Paltrow’s negligence on the slopes left him with such severe brain injuries that his personality and demeanor changed after the accident.

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