I am so sorry I don’t mean to add to confusion!
I’m a rainbow of confusion then. 🤷🏻‍♀️ I saw the tweet and Elon’s case was heard by a jury. I guess we will wait on an announcement.

But Elon’s case was in US. Basically UK has tried to limit jury cases.

Many thanks Lbock and AdeleAgain for sifting through all these bits and pieces, and coming up with some clarity, sensible thoughts and interpretations. A few more, please:

Q. Does “no jury” mean the case is heard and decided by Justice Nicol alone?

Q. “ . . . Depp, his ex-wife Amber Heard, & News UK all want it to happen . . .” Do we think “all” really belongs here or is Mr. Kirk just being cautiously objective?

Q. Do we know who is in London with Johnny? Who would be running the show from the US for Johnny?

Thanks again, Ladies.

My head is spinning. This is all so overwhelming, frustrating, and saddening at once. Right at this moment I’m just hoping Johnny is doing all he can to keep himself healthy, safe, and holding on to positive thoughts.

In the USA we would call it a bench trial and the judge makes the final ruling. That is usually good for a complex detail case. Removes emotion I think. Is that good?

As far as “middle of night testimony” there is no way to avoid that irregardless of the virus. Time zone between U.K. vs California is unavoidable. We had heard that witnesses already expected this and judge ruled video links were allowed. So who is now getting cold feet or complaining. (Hopefully not Johnnys witnesses) guessing her side as Adam referred to her comrades dropping or recanting

Let’s see Friday. So many RUMORS swirling everything is going to be locked down in UK

I imagine rescheduling a ten day trial is a nightmare with a packed court schedule and his is not the only one

Adam has been in London with Johnny. He could return to California to handle these or be present. I don’t expect this imo
Brown, Rurnick... has been handling his other cases in California. From filings in the AH vs TMG recent case (to compel subpoena for documents...)

Coming fast and furious. The Hollywood Reporter updated their article regarding Laura Divenere


Reached for comment, Waldman responded that the news publisher's lawyer was "desperate" and says he's gotten confirmation from Divinere's attorney that her declaration was "true and correct." He also says he's investigating further legal options with respect to the recording and any involvement by The Sun.

The Hollywood Reporter has reached out to Divinere's attorney. Further updates may come.
Update. THR has edited multiple times. Not sure who requested change




Reached for comment, Waldman responded. "Facing trial, a desperate Sun tabloid lawyer today wildly touted an apparent illegal recording made by Amber Heard of her former employee Laura Divinere just days after Ms. Divinere testified against Ms. Heard. Ms. Divinere’s lawyer today reaffirmed in writing her 'statement was true and correct' and added that she 'never consented to being recorded' and suggested any audiotape 'would be in violation of CA Penal Code 632. We will alert law enforcement and investigate further the Sun’s involvement in this illegal activity and the filing of such materials in a California federal court

It looks like London is going into lock down next week so likely the case will be postponed. Adam Waldman strategy of pushing this into the public domain looks even more correct in light of these events. I doubt it was what JD initially wanted. But it has worked. Whilst it is frustrating the AH is not being sacked atm because L’Oréal and WB don’t have to say anything she is so utterly damaged. Allow time and hiatus for more stories to circulate about Johnny as the joker Johnny back as Jack Sparrow and these rumours being met with enthusiasm not a barrage of crap.

These tapes and other evidence against AH are not going anywhere.

Her tapes now public showing how she lied is so important. New DM article and her “new” horrendous claims we expected. Take a deep breath...

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/articl ... hears.html



MORE STORIES
Furious Johnny Depp tore off Amber Heard's nightgown, pinned her to a ping pong table and grabbed her breasts during late night bust-up, High Court libel battle hears

-Johnny Depp cut the tip of his finger in the alleged fall-out with Amber Heard
-The actor texted his doctor saying: 'I have chopped off my left middle finger as a reminder that I should never cut my finger off again. I love you brother, Johnny.'
-Depp has claimed Ms Heard caused the injury and put a cigarette out in his face
I’m not concerned about texts re his finger. We know he lied to the ER doctor it was an accident. So he continues to protect Amber.

She already filed in VA this new account but now has added more horrendous claims. Why changing her story now? I’m sure that will be scrutinized.

This monster could be his addiction. Could result in yelling and screaming and damaging scenery. Not hitting her

I think some of us speculated that she would do this, now she's been proved as a domestic abuser she's accusing him of sexual assault because that's considered much worse.

Let's not click on it or share it.

Another view point.

She likes to PLAY ROUGH. It's possible.

Not sexual misconduct, nor marital assault. Rough play, nothing more.

But let’s not forget this nugget from Adam


Ms. Heard was screaming “I love you, don’t leave me” as Mr. Depp was carted off to the hospital during the afternoon she violently severed his finger in Australia."

Another update from THR article regarding the LAPD and Laura D testimony view video link:


Reached for comment, Waldman responded that the news publisher's lawyer was "desperate" and says he's gotten confirmation from Divinere's attorney that her declaration was "true and correct." He also says he's investigating further legal options with respect to the recording and any involvement by The Sun.

The Hollywood Reporter has reached out to Divinere's attorney.

Update Wed 3/18 10 am PST: The California judge has granted an order compelling the three to appear on March 27 and provide trial testimony via a satellite link. That noted, according to Law360, High Court Judge Andrew Nicol is considering a delay of the trial amid word that one of Depp's barristers is in self-isolation due to coronavirus and the difficulty of handling all the other witnesses who will give evidence over video. “There’s also the issue of if we were to start and illness struck one or more participants halfway through, what would we do? Even if you haven’t raised the question, I was going to raise it,” said Judge Nicol.

I honestly don’t believe this will end well for Johnny.. there’s too much hysteria and drama between the two. He got himself mixed up with this crazy :censored: and now he’s paying for it. Dearly. I hope with all my heart that Johnny gets his name cleared but I don’t see that happening. I believe it’s wishful thinking IMO

No, it will be fine. There are understandable delays right now but once back on track it will be full steam ahead for Johnny.
A reminder that there's a mountain of evidence against the unlawful acts of Amber Heard. Media is beginning to cover her awful behavior, leading up to the hoax she and her cohorts concocted. She and The Sun will use this time to continue to smear Johnny, but we all knew that and we (through social media) and his legal team will fight it. His lawyers here and in the UK are many steps ahead of desperate Amber Heard. She'll throw anything at Johnny now but it will fall flat in the long run. Truth be told, she's already lost credibility as have her co-hoaxers. My guess is she's spinning out of control now, especially with the latest reports where interior designer, Laura Divinere was illegally recorded by sneaky Amber. Lawyers for Laura will go after Amber Heard for breaking the law in California. Meanwhile Johnny is staying put, letting his legal team handle it all with his trust and confidence. Most likely he's playing his guitar during this time of isolation and staying safe.
~ MAGICK HAPPENS ~
Through the years, for the many xoxo's, giggles & kindness...
thank you & love you Johnny.
