Gwyneth Paltrow appears in court over a ski accident in Utah

Actress Gwyneth Paltrow can take the stand today to testify at her civil trial regarding a 2016 skiing collision.

Meanwhile, Paltrow claims it was Sanderson who bumped into her on the ramp.

Paltrow, her husband Brad Falchuk, and sons Moses, 16, and Apple, 18, are expected to testify in the case — and the star is likely to take the stand on Wednesday.
