Gwyneth Paltrow’s lawyer complains after filming the actress in court

Meanwhile, Paltrow claims that it was Sanderson who bumped into her.
Neuroradiologist Dr Wendell Gibby testified on Wednesday that the impact left him suffering a “sudden” drop in quality of life – leaving him unable to enjoy himself.
