[Source: Extra TV]
Celebrity Lawyer Christopher C. Melcher, who is ranked as a best family law attorney in California, Analyzes Gwyneth Paltrow‘s Performance on the stand in her Ski Collision Trial on Extra TV.
Billy Bush: Day five, and after Gwyneth told her unforgettable story on Friday…
Gwyneth Paltrow: I can still watch my children ski and be skied directly into my back by someone.
Billy Bush: It was Terry Sanderson’s turn. He delivered a dramatic play-by-play of what he says happened in their ski collision.
Terry Sanderson: It was like, the grounds coming up, you’ve got to protect your face.
Billy Bush: The partially blind optometrist says Paltrow slammed right into him, leaving him unable to move. Then a male voice began screaming at him.
Terry Sanderson: All I could recognize was that someone was really angry at me. I couldn’t fight, I couldn’t flight.
Billy Bush: Gwyneth was seen shaking her head in disagreement at times during his testimony, which became teary.
Terry Sanderson: Sweetheart. I was grateful for her.
Billy Bush: And teary Terry took this shot at her when he was asked about finding out that the other person in this collision was actually a Hollywood star.
Terry Sanderson: I heard him say it was Gwyneth Paltrow, and to me it’s like, I’m not into celebrity worship.
Billy Bush: But the Oscar-winning Goop mogul’s testimony from Friday is still making headlines.
Kristin Vanorman: I didn’t know if it was an intentional assault of a sexual nature.
Gwyneth Paltrow: Right. Two skis came between my skis, forcing my legs apart, and then there was a body pressing against me, and there was a very strange grunting noise.
Billy Bush: And one thing, in particular, is going viral.
Gwyneth Paltrow: Well, I lost half a day of skiing.
Billy Bush: That comment is lighting up social media. Even actress, Busy Philipps and a friend got in on the act, captioning an Instagram post that looks like they may have started Après-ski a little early. “Well, we lost half a day of skiing.” Millions watched Gwyneth live, and even more, binged online clips of her courtroom grilling.
Kristin Vanorman: Probably had a better ski outfit, though, I bet.
Gwyneth Paltrow: I still have the same one.
Kristin Vanorman: May I ask how tall you are? Gwyneth Paltrow: I’m just under 5’10”.
Kristin Vanorman: Okay. I am so jealous. And I’m assuming, you’re under oath here, that you’re a good tipper.
Gwyneth Paltrow: Yes.
Kristin Vanorman: Okay, fantastic. I wouldn’t expect anything less.
Billy Bush: We turned to legal analyst and top family law attorney, Chris Melcher. Chris, do you think Gwyneth was successful on the stand or was the opposition successful in painting her as I think they wanted to, in a bit of a snobby way.
Chris Melcher: I think Gwyneth performed better than I expected she would. She was dynamic, I think, on the stand. She came across as being believable, and the questions by the lawyer were very awkward, and I think that that made Gwyneth look better than she probably would’ve otherwise.
Billy Bush: Today, Terry Sanderson was on the stand. Was he effective?
Celebrity lawyer Chris Melcher of top family law firm Walzer Melcher LLP also states “This is what’s confusing about it. Both of them testify credibly about their versions of the events. So it’s going to be up to the jury to figure out who is right here. But Terry has the burden of proof. So my bet is that he’s going to lose and the jury is going to side with Gwyneth.”
