Amber Heard's Legal Team Seeks to Dismiss Johnny Depp's $50 Million Defamation Lawsuit

Amber Heard is hoping that the $50 million defamation lawsuit filed against her by ex-husband Johnny Depp will be dismissed by the court.

Depp previously lost his legal battle in the UK, where he sued a newspaper for calling him a “wife beater.”

Amber‘s lawyers filed a supplemental plea with the court, saying that the judgment in the UK proves that the statements made by the actress are true.

“Giving full effect to the UK Judgments necessitates a finding that statements in the op-ed published in the Washington Post are true – Mr. Depp committed domestic violence against Ms. Heard on many occasions, causing her to fear for her life,” Amber’s lawyers wrote in the filing (via Deadline).

They added, “Therefore, as a matter of law, Depp cannot prevail on any of his claims, and Depp’s Complaint against Ms. Heard should be dismissed in its entirety.”

The trial will not start until April 11, 2022 if it does end up going in front of the judge.
