A new trial has begun between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard. The actor wants $ 50 million from his ex-wife for defamation

The opinion piece never mentioned Johnny Depp by name, but the famous actor’s lawyers said it was clear that Heard was referring to him and that the article had affected his film career and reputation.

The selection of the jurors ended on Monday, and the introductory statements are scheduled to begin on Tuesday, he writes Reuters.

Johnny Depp has denied all allegations of abuse, saying Amber Heard’s allegations were “a prank designed to generate positive publicity for Mrs. Heard and advance her career“.

Both Johnny Depp and Amber Heard presented long lists of potential witnesses they could bring before the judge.

Amber Heard’s list also includes her ex-boyfriend and Tesla CEO Elon Musk, with whom she sent messages about Depp. Also on the list of potential witnesses is actor James Franco, whom Heard said was interested in the bruises on her face following an alleged abusive incident with Johnny Depp.

Depp wants the Fairfax County jury to find that Amber Heard knowingly made false statements.

For her part, Heard will argue that she is protected, or “immune” from liability, because her 2018 editorial on domestic violence has addressed a public interest issue.

“I never called him. I’d rather write about the price women pay for speaking out against men in power. I keep paying that price, but I hope that when this case is over, I’ll be able to go. as well as Johnny“Amber Heard said in a statement on Saturday.

The Washington Post is not on trial. Johnny Depp’s lawyers say they filed a lawsuit in Fairfax County, outside the District of Columbia, because the newspaper is printed at a unit there. Amber Heard tried unsuccessfully to transfer the case to Los Angeles, where she and Depp lived.
