Actress Gwyneth Paltrow testified in a Utah courtroom this week for a civil trial after a retired optometrist accused her of crashing into him while skiing on a bunny hill at an upscale Park City resort.

Terry Sanderson brought the lawsuit against the Goop CEO, claiming she recklessly crashed into him and then skied away despite his injuries. He said the accident left him with broken ribs and permanent brain damage.

Paltrow has denied that she caused the collision, filing a lawsuit of her own against Sanderson. She claims he was the one who crashed into her.

Here’s what to know as the closely watched trial continues.
