I’m not sure the former A+ list mostly movie actor should have objected to what his ex did in court.
It is a big trap where the ex is going to drop a whole bunch of stuff to make the actor even less likely to get jobs.
Johnny Depp’s “Bullying” $50M Defamation Suit Against Amber Heard, Adds Time’s Up Attorney For New Dismissal Effort
UPDATED with lawyers statements: Amber Heard may be forced to fight the $50 million defamation lawsuit brought by her ex-husband Johnny Depp in Virginia after all, but the Aquaman star delivered a one-two punch Friday.
Having lost her attempt to move the matter to California back in July, Heard has filed a new motion to dismiss the wide-ranging complaint by the Pirates of the Caribbean star. The activist actor has also bulked up her legal team with the addition of Time’s Up legal defense fund co-founder Roberta Kaplan.
Simply put, Heard, the author of a 2018 Washington Post op-ed about domestic violence and the backlash women often suffer, isn’t messing around.
“It appears that Mr. Depp desperately hopes to put his whole marriage on trial, or to wage
legal warfare over Ms. Heard’s decision to report his abuse in 2016,” asserts a memorandum of law (read it here) accompanying the motions.
“If permitted, that would be an abuse of the legal system and an improper means of dodging the limitations period for defamation claims,” the multi-leveled filing from attorneys at New York’s Kaplan Hecker & Fink LLP, Virginia’s Woods Rogers PLC and L.A.’s Browne George Ross LLP adds. “But Mr. Depp’s case cannot proceed because it fails to satisfy core requirements of defamation law-and because it imputes to Ms. Heard’s op-ed a series of hidden factual representations that simply are not there.” – Source
Amber Heard’s Ex-Girlfriend Speaks Out on Domestic Violence Arrest in 2009: She Was ‘Wrongfully
Amber Heard’s ex-girlfriend, photographer Tasya van Ree, is defending the actress when it comes to Heard’s arrest in 2009 on a charge of misdemeanor domestic violence.
“In 2009, Amber was wrongfully accused for an incident that was misinterpreted and over-sensationalized by two individuals in a power position,” van Ree said in a statement on Wednesday. “I recount hints of misogynistic attitudes toward us which later appeared to be homophobic when they found out we were domestic partners and not just ‘friends.'”
“Charges were quickly dropped and she was released moments later,” she continues. “It’s disheartening that Amber’s integrity and story are being questioned yet again. Amber is a brilliant, honest and beautiful woman and I have the utmost respect for her. We shared five wonderful years together and remain close to this day.”
ET confirmed on Tuesday that Heard was arrested and booked on Sept. 15, 2009 for Assault in the Fourth Degree – Domestic Violence, but the prosecuting attorney’s office declined to file criminal charges at the time. According to TMZ, Heard, 30, and van Ree, 40, got in an argument at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, which triggered the arrest. Heard allegedly grabbed and struck van Ree in the arm.- Source
