close Video Mark Geragos: Gwyneth Paltrow’s legal team had a stronger defense in court Defense attorney Mark Geragos on the latest from the Gwyneth Paltrow case over an alleged skiing hit-and-run Stephen Owens, Gwyneth Paltrow's lawyer, reconciled with his courtroom actions on the third day of trial in the negligence suit brought upon by Terry Sanderson against the Academy Award winner. Sanderson, a retired optometrist, originally sued Paltrow for $3.1 million and claimed he was a victim of a hit-and-run on the slopes at the Deer Valley Resort in 2016. A judge dismissed the claim and removed the exclusive resort and a ski instructor from the lawsuit before Sanderson proceeded with the $300,000 suit.

Goldman Sachs’s Top Image Maker Is Leaving
A change of messenger at Goldman Sachs For nearly a decade, Jake Siewert led Goldman Sachs ’s post-crisis efforts to shed its image as one of Wall Street’s most mysterious, and maligned, money machines.

New York Put Recovering Virus Patients in Hotels. Soon, 4 Were Dead.
When Robert Rowe Jr. was discharged from the hospital this month after testing positive for the coronavirus, he needed a place to stay so he would not put his 84-year-old father at risk. New York City health officials put him up at a three-star hotel in Midtown Manhattan. The room was provided under a city program that was intended to protect recovering patients’ families and roommates. Case workers are supposed to check on the patients twice a day by telephone. But on Saturday, Mr. Rowe, 56, was found dead in his room at the Hilton Garden Inn on West 37th Street, nearly 20 hours after a city worker last phoned him, though it was unclear whether he picked up. Two other men sent to the same hotel — Julio Melendez, 42, and Sung Mo Ping, 64 — also died last weekend, and a fourth man in the program died early this month at a Queens hotel. The deaths exposed holes in the way the city monitors isolated patients and underscored the difficulty in containing the outbreak in New … [Read more...] about New York Put Recovering Virus Patients in Hotels.
