What an idiot. It's almost as if he's been paid to render such a verdict.........

It is simply unbelievable - the judge has just taken what she said at face value from what I've read.

I hope they make a statement very soon saying they will appeal. OF course I am not an expert but this is not where I understood the balance on libel to stand. The Sun relied on AH's evidence - so the fact that AH was repeatedly shown to have lied (Australia dogs etc) means nothing?

And the treatment of Kate James.

It is unbelievable, I am so ashamed of a UK judge doing this.

Can they appeal this ruling?

How much negative weight does this carry into the VA case? There will be a jury in the VA trial with 12 sensible heads (hopefully).

Let's all keep our heads up. Team Depp will prevail.

Look at this !



And he literally said that that witch assaulting Johnny is NOT relevant ! And discarded Johnny's witnesses, his evidence. Someone needs to check the man's bank accounts, seriously. Johnny never had a shot.

First of all, I want to say to Johnny that I will remain your relative. I love you and I hold you tight
Then I want to say that the judge is corrupt. Because if he were fair, he would have made a different decision. I'm shocked . I hope that our angel is surrounded by very dear friends and his children who are there for him. My thoughts, my heart and my love are with you, Johnny. :heart4:

I love your attitude, Granna. We must look forward and keep fighting for justice. Unfortunately, there is also corruption in the courts!!!

I hope JD's side make a statement soon - if anyone sees one please, please post it!

The twitter lawyers who have followed this are clearly shocked.

This does seem like absolute madness.

Difference between now and 2018 or so (ie pre the recordings) 'the people' seem on his side.

Ok good - they are appealing. Schillings statement:

"This decision is as perverse as it is bewildering... The judgment is so flawed that it would be ridiculous for Mr Depp not to appeal this decision."

And this should calm you down. This guy is very knowledgeable. This is his initial, very quick read out.

I think the thing which is going to get people howling is saying that AH is not a gold digger. Come on.

Said it before and will say it again - thank god for the emergence of those tapes because that's what people remember. I'm currently in an office of about 40 people - not one single person can believe the verdict, and many of them work in legal cases.

Here is a good link that makes sense to me anyway, on appeals process in UK
https://www.lexology.com/library/detail ... 54f3950e6f

Johnny has 21 days to submit for permission to appeal. NGN has 14 days to file an opposition. Hopefully the appeal will be accepted (otherwise he has to move it up the chain). Appeals take on average 12-18 months with new filing of skeleton arguments. No new evidence is allowed typically.

I am not happy about this decision but I am very proud of Johnny for doing what he did and his fan base can only get stronger.
