Elaine Charlson Breadhoft, Amber Heard‘s lawyer says that she is unable to pay her ex-husband, Johnny Depp $10.35 million in damages. On Thursday, In an Interview Heard’s lawyer said that she was ‘demonized’ in the US Court. Elaine Charlson said that ‘were allowed in this court that should not have been allowed.’
US Jury gave the verdict in the favour of Johnny Depp in the defamation trial. Their case went on for six weeks. Elaine Charlson said about Amber, “She was demonised here. A number of things were allowed in this court that should not have been allowed, and it caused the jury to be confused. We weren’t allowed to tell them about the UK judgement…There are no damages. It stopped on November 2, 2020, which is when the judgement came down in the UK.”
In reference to the 2020 case in the UK, she said, “The court found there, and we weren’t allowed to tell the jury this, but the court found that Mr Depp had committed at least 12 acts of domestic violence, including sexual violence against Amber. So what did Depp’s team learn from this? Demonise Amber, and suppress the evidence. We had an enormous amount of evidence that was suppressed in this case that was in the UK case. In the UK case when it came in, Amber won, Mr Depp, lost.”
Johnny Depp sued his wife Amber over an op-ed she wrote for The Washington Post in the month of December 2018 in which she described herself as a “public figure representing domestic abuse.” She didn’t name Johnny in the piece, but he sued her for implying he was a domestic abuser and sought $50 million in damages. Amber countersued for $100 million, saying she was defamed by statements made by Johnny’s lawyer, Adam Waldman.
