Amber Heard team will not call Johnny Depp back to stand

Amber Heard’s legal team has confirmed that Johnny Depp will not be called back to testify.

Ms Heard’s counsel stated to the press that bringing Depp back to the stand would be as significant to them as a bicycle to a fish. Everything Depp has asserted on up to this point has been immaterial to the heart of this case, and there’s no reason to assume that will change now.”

“This statement is from a source close to Amber Heard this afternoon after her team changed their mind about summoning Depp to the testimony,” Court TV Legal Correspondent Chanley Shá Painter tweeted.

Mr Depp and Ms Heard’s defamation trial started on Monday, April 11 in Fairfax, Virginia, after Mr Depp’s lawsuit against his ex-wife in March 2019. Mr. Depp claims she publicly humiliated him in an op-ed published in The Washington Post in December 2018 titled “I stood up against sexual abuse — and faced our culture’s fury. That must change.”

Angenette Levy, Law & Crime Correspondent, tweeted that Ms Heard’s lawyers “will not bring Johnny Depp to the stand as they had originally intended.” He’ll return throughout his rebuttal case. Is this a matter of time? “[Ms Heard’s] team has less time than [Mr Depp’s] team.”

She continued, ”we warned you that it would be perilous. They don’t have much time left, and Amber Heard’s attorneys believe Johnny Depp is uncontrolled as a witness. Several legal analysts thought he performed admirably on the stand.”

“The team for Heard is running out of time to deliver their evidence. At the start of the week, they only had around 8 hours to work on their case in chief and rebuttal,” Ms Painter continued.

Ms Heard said in a 2018 op-ed that “like many women, she had been harassed and sexually abused by the time she was of college age. However she remained silent because she did not believe that registering complaints would result in justice. And she didn’t consider herself a victim.

Amber Heard's Team Will Not Call Johnny Depp to Testify

In a turn of events, Amber Heard's team will not call Johnny Depp to testify. "Calling Depp back to the stand would be as relevant to us as a bicycle to a fish," a source close to Heard said.

She explained at that time that two years ago, she became a public figure representing domestic violence, and she experienced the full power of our culture’s fury for women who speak up.

Ms Heard has filed a lawsuit for $100 million against Mr Depp for annoyance and protection from his accusations.
