Johnny Depp’s lawyers say he didn’t get a fair trial, want a new one

Johnny Depp’s lawyers argued to an appeals court Thursday that he didn’t get a fair trial after losing his sensational libel case against a British newspaper for calling him a “wife-beater,” according to a new report.

Attorney David Sherborne asked the panel to “set aside the judgment and order a new trial” after London High Court Judge Andrew Nicol ruled last month that The Sun’s headline was “substantially true” and the Hollywood superstar regularly roughed up Amber Heard, 34, and dismissed his claim, The Guardian reported.

The explosive trial that took place over the summer and featured Depp, 57, and Heard as witnesses — included allegations of everything from rampant drug use to a poop incident in the pair’s marital bed.

In court papers, Sherborne blasted the “Aquaman” actress’s testimony as unreliable and inconsistent, and criticized the judge for failing to scrutinize her account.

“[Nicol] concluded that the appellant was guilty of serious physical assaults without taking account of or even acknowledging that Ms. Heard had been untruthful in her evidence, without testing her account against the documentary evidence and the evidence of other witnesses, and without making any findings that he disbelieved those witnesses,” wrote Sherborne, according to The Guardian.

The lawyer called it a “very public judgment, reached by a single judge, making devastating findings of extremely serious criminal offenses” with “wider-ranging implications for the public at large,” the report said. – Source
