One Winnipeg Dad and his kid have a $3000 phone bill thanks to his son’s long-distance text messages. Danton Unger from CTV Wpg had a very calm Dad talking about the ordeal. There’s no way I would have been this calm. Impressive.

The Paltrow trial only lasted nine days but in the end, it went in Paltrow’s favor. What’s more, she’s a whole one dollar richer. As per CNN, a Utah jury found Paltrow not guilty of colliding with a retired optometrist back in 2016. Terry Sanderson, the plaintiff, had accused the Oscar-winning actress and entrepreneur of running into her while skiing on the slopes of Park City, Utah. Sanderson claimed that as a result of the incident, he had suffered lasting injuries, incuding to the brain. Paltrow, meanwhile, testified that it was Sanderson who ran into her, claiming she was downslope from him, not the other way around. A jury agreed with Paltrow, perhaps in part because Sanderson’s witness, a neurologist, all but blew up his case by admitting that a skier would have had to be going 50 to 60 miles per hour to deliver the blow he claimed, something only an Olympic athlete could have done. Paltrow, meanwhile, was in the midst of skiing lessons. Sanderson was seeking $3.2 million. Paltrow only sought a measly $1, which she’ll presumably get.
