Thanks, Lbock, for the Link to Johnny’s redacted deposition. I read through it and found, though interesting, all the redacted info - blocks of whole pages in places - make for very easily misconstrued responses and narratives.Lbock wrote: ↑Wed Oct 16, 2019 9:05 pmDeadline has lots more.
“Then they crated this whole story of this African-American women that Rocky was supposedly berating on the set is untrue and absolutely defamatory,” the lawyer added, noting that his client was homeless himself for a while as a teen and was partially raised by an African-American woman. “Depp can say whatever he wants but to create this fabrication that goes to the heart of who Rocky is, it’s killing him.”
Johnnys redacted deposition is here also
One thing that is very striking, though, is the lack of contrived or calculated responses from Johnny. Just obviously someone trying to recount, honestly and to the best of his memory, events of over two years ago while always staying within the parameters of the often leading questions.
Also, amazed to read he’d not read Emma Danoff’s statement until the day before/or morning of his deposition. What happened, happened and, sometimes to a fault, Johnny relied solely on his memory of what occurred. No embellishments, no histrionics, no memory-jogged recountings or truth-dodging ramblings. Like night and day when compared to AH’s (unrelated) abominable, staged depo performance.
From the Deadline article we also got our first taste of the twisted desperation the newest addition to the Brooks’ attorney team, Pat Harris, will be contributing to this circus over the next seven months. He fits in well with the unmitigated, arrogant disregard for justice and truth Rocky and friends have displayed to date. Mr. Harris’ comments certainly do go very pointedly “to the heart of who Rocky is”, although surely not in any way remotely intended by Harris.
