Ok got through it all.

What a mess AH/ACLU - under Roberta Kaplan the argument for dismissal was this was nothing to do with JD. Does anyone get sanctioned for getting their lawyers to argue big fat lies?

Here is a walk through Eric George's deposition in case the drop box isn't working for you anymore.

"Heard’s attorney and the ACLU are frantically trying to get the defamation case dismissed before the trial because it will expose bigger felony crimes which may result in more than just a USD$50 million payout."

Thanks for posting JD's reply Lbock; of course cannot discern with a lawyer's brain but did I understand correctly that AH's papers deliberately misrepresented legal precedents? Have I got that right? Be very glad of someone else's views.

That struck me as a little strange too. Maybe I skimmed and missed something, but I think TeamHeard is clutching at straws and these were the only precedents that applied. They just didn't benefit their case (quite the opposite), but I think they're scraping the bottom of the barrel. And if they can't dismiss the trial, they will try to delay it with a blizzard of nonsense legal challenges.

I'm not sure why Amber, Elon and the ACLU are refusing to hand over anything. My only thought is that they would rather lose the case than be forced to disclose records that will expose them to more serious felony charges (as the linked article above states).

Inquiring Minds: Unfortunately, my mind went further.

What if . . . Musky is the keeper of the Toronto Tapes. (Damning evidence) Could those tapes be a key source of guilt? Heard's total hoax destruction? ACLU's serious unorthodox involvement? Musky's refusal of her depo?

I don't know but it seems to me like Team Ex is just throwing spaghetti against the wall to see what sticks. Right now they are treading on some very tight rope in the hopes they will come up with something the judge will accept to dismiss the case but the judge is not impressed with their prior attempts to dismiss. They were warned if they waste the court's time again there will be sanctions and something tells me the judge will not allow them to file again.

As for the Toronto tapes, I remember the ex going into a hissy fit immediately when it was brought up in the audio tapes and said she would be getting them to him. She said he wasn't going to like what he is going to hear but I think she is the one who should be worried or else she would have produced them by now. JD went to another hotel room to get away from her. She seems to go into these kind of fits on the tapes whenever she is called out on something.

There are no documents filed in opposition in NYC by the ACLU against Depp's Motion to Compel them to provide docs, etc per subpoenas

They are claiming that it is over broad, not releated to the defamation claim (donations at least), no reason for him to have to depose multiple people, including the most senior executives. If they do agree to provide information/documents, they want a separate protective order (which Depp Team has not agreed to as related to the VA Protective order). They cite the hearing from Oct 23 (provide transcript) of Adam's revocation of his Pro Hac Vice status based on leaking private info(I think they were wrong)

Here is the docs:
AFFIRMATION OF STEPHANIE TEPLIN
https://iapps.courts.state.ny.us/fbem/D ... ystem=prod

Transcript of Pro Hac Vice hearing
https://iapps.courts.state.ny.us/fbem/D ... ystem=prod

Emails:
https://iapps.courts.state.ny.us/fbem/D ... ystem=prod
https://iapps.courts.state.ny.us/fbem/D ... ystem=prod
https://iapps.courts.state.ny.us/fbem/D ... ystem=prod

And Memorandum in Law for Opposition
https://iapps.courts.state.ny.us/fbem/D ... ystem=prod

These are all public documents

Regarding Adam - Somehow NGN got Josh Drew's entire deposition transcript (marked confidential) and it certainly didn't come from Depp Team. Amber Heard turned over allot more photos than was released to the media. She also included a list of his medications she used to carry around with her. Many other items that WERE covered in the VA Protective order. Nichols ordered Johnny not to seek sanctions in order to continue the trial. Amber also turned over allot of documents marking them all confidential, that were against the Protective Order. However, it seems Adam jumped the gun on posting some BEFORE they were formally declassified. Basically, Heard Team was forcing Depp Team to take extra steps (motions and hearings and $) to get her to confirm to the protective order.

What does the ACLU have to hide re the donations? I understand the right to privacy for donors who ask to be anonymous. But the Vanguard letters clearly stated they could NOT be used for any persons and could NOT be applied to existing pledges. That is an IRS violation IMHO (The letter from Romero stating the $500K + they received (mentioning Elon in the email) should be applied to her pledge.


They also mention the Pledge Form and address the Logo has been around since 2014. They cite some websites, but none of them show the Logo. Also, remember, the form was undated and unsigned at the bottom.

FYI

When people/organisations are telling the truth they can easily point to evidence or supporting information. If the ACLU was using the logo in 2014 - which maybe they were incredibly organised and were - why not produce a letter or something which shows the logo? Simple, would shut down the argument. This is absolutely simply unbelievable that they are being so obstructive and claiming this is nothing to do with them when they helped write the article, placed it, lauded her donation and then tried to join the case as a 'friend of the court'.

It beggars belief that a charity can behave like this. They must just have stuff to hide.

Very, very interesting that I've seen a few comments to the effect that the ACLU is a place where rich donors white wash their reputations. It is a classic trick of course to give generously to charities to show what a decent person you really are - but most decent charities will not let you do that in an inappropriate or untruthful way.

A "certain nameless person" isn't doing very good in the case. She has nobody connected to a corrupt judge this time.

Interesting new bombshell. The article mentions the ACLU is now a defendant but I have not seen any proof of that so far.
