The retired optometrist, who has again sued Gwyneth Paltrow and her crossed paths, this time marks the end of Thursday’s ski accident trial.
According to video footage obtained by The Post, Paltrow reportedly touched Dr. Terry Sanderson’s shoulder and whispered, “How are you?” I’m here.
He seemed to say “thank you” with little emotion.
The 50-year-old actress smiled and waved at photographers off the court, capping off a wild eight-day trial that grabbed all the international headlines for the Oscar winner. Jeffrey Dahmer style glasses to her irrelevant remarks.
After about two-and-a-half hours of deliberation, a jury found that Sanderson, 76, was responsible for the 2016 ski crash and not the founder of Goop.
“We are pleased with the outcome and appreciate the consideration of the judge and jury,” Paltrow’s attorney Stephen Owens said in a statement outside the courtroom.
“Gwyneth has a history of standing up for what’s right and this situation is no different. She will continue to stand up for what’s right.”
A statement was also released from Paltrow’s representative on her behalf.
“I felt my integrity was compromised by acquiescing to false claims,” Paltrow said. “We are pleased with the outcome, thank Judge Holmberg and the jury for their efforts, and thank them for their thoughtfulness in handling this case.”
The Post has reached out to a Sanderson rep for comment.
Sanderson sued Paltrow for $3.1 million in 2019, claiming that the crash at Deer Valley Ski Resort left him with brain damage that damaged his relationships with others.
After a judge dismissed his original complaint, Sanderson demanded $300,000.
Paltrow countersued for just $1 — plus her supposedly six-figure attorney fees — and the jury agreed that the crash was Sanderson’s fault, so it ruled on her.
When Judge Kent Holmberg handed down the verdict on Thursday, Paltrow remained calm, but she had a slight smile on her face.
Hundreds of thousands of people watched the trial live stream, and many more followed the footage posted on social media.
In one of the much-criticized clips, Sanderson’s attorney asked Paltrow how the crash affected her.
“Well, I lost half a day skiing,” she said coldly.
Sanderson, meanwhile, made a bizarre comparison between Paltrow and sex offender Jeffrey Epstein Wednesday, but a judge instructed jurors to ignore it.
