Amber Heard's Attorneys Reveal Why They're Stepping Away From Case, Johnny Depp's Lawyer Reacts

Amber Heard is losing her attorneys.

According to The Blast, high profile lawyer Roberta Kaplan “filed to withdraw from the defamation case filed against the actress by Johnny Depp.” In addition, “several other attorneys” have filed to withdraw, and Amber has allegedly endorsed the decision.

“The undersigned moves for entry of an order permitting Robert Kaplan, John Quinn, Julie Fink, Davida Brook to withdraw as counsel of record for Defendant Amber Laura Heard,” the legal papers read. “In addition to the undersigned, who is remaining in this matter as counsel of record to Ms. Heard, Ms. Heard has retained the services of another trial counsel licensed in Virginia, Elaine Bredehoft.”

A representative for Kaplan Hecker & Fink LL said, “We believe Amber and we believe in Amber. We have been proud to serve as Amber’s counsel. In the strange and unexpected circumstances of today’s world, as travel and logistics have become more costly in light of the pandemic, we understand the decision to move the case to local, Virginia-based trial counsel.”

Now, Johnny Depp‘s attorney is responding, saying, “For years, #TimesUp and others inexplicably hitched their wagons to Amber Heard’s abuse hoax. Ms. Heard’s lawyers, one of whom co-founded the #TimesUp Legal Defense Fund, have now apparently unhitched from Ms Heard’s long-disproven frauds. We intend to discover why.”

Recently, a 911 call from an alleged Johnny and Amber fight was released.
