I am seeing loads of snippets on twitter from the 'evidence' not allowed in during the Virginia trial. Some absolutely fantastic things and some real sass from Camille and Ben towards Elaine and her unprofessionalism (and the judge giving Elaine several tellings off).
Is there a website or somewhere they are all accessible - I know Andrea and Laura did alot of work on them - but there seems to be a spate of things coming out over the last few days.

Johnny Depp's Lawyer Camille Vasquez Talks Verdict 1 Year Later, Attorneys Still Text Actor 'Often' (Exclusive)
Camille Vasquez also tells PEOPLE whether she'd write a book about the Johnny Depp v. Amber Heard trial
Camille Vasquez, one of Johnny Depp's lawyers during his trial with Amber Heard, still keeps in touch with the actor.
One year after the verdict in the Virginia defamation trial mostly favored her client Depp, Vasquez tells PEOPLE that she and others from their legal team, including Benjamin Chew, still text with Depp, 59, "often."
"The last time I spoke to [Depp] on the phone was probably a few months ago, but we text often. There's a group of us that texts with him and we send emails, obviously congratulating him on the success that he's had in the last year. He has a big birthday coming up, so I'm sure he'll be celebrating — foot up because, as you've seen, probably, reported in the news, unfortunately our guy got a fracture in, I believe, his ankle."
Vasquez adds that she and her colleagues from the trial also plan on attending one of Depp's Hollywood Vampires tour stops in Boston later this summer.
She says the team dubbed themselves "The Black Pearl" during the trial, a nod to Depp's Pirates of the Caribbean days, and they maintain a group chat with that name.
"I'm so proud of the work we did, and it wasn't just me; this is a tremendous team with mostly associates that worked their little tail feathers off to do the job that we were able to do," says Vasquez. "We were such a team and we're still so united and we care about one another."
In December, Depp's ex-wife Heard, 37, revealed they reached a settlement and both dropped their appeals. She said of that "very difficult" decision: "I have made no admission. This is not an act of concession. There are no restrictions or gags with respect to my voice moving forward." As part of the settlement, she paid Depp $1 million, which his team said he'd donate to charity.
"Ms. Heard did pay Mr. Depp, not the other way around. I want to make that very, very clear," says Vasquez. "The judgment still stands. It will always still stand for the remainder of time. And Mr. Depp will be donating the money that Ms. Heard paid to settle the appeal to a number of charities."
And there's no other lingering issues on the matter, she says: "Case closed, and we couldn't be happier about it for him in the best possible way. And, again, the most important thing to us and to him was that the judgment would stand."

I've been mulling the whole Australia issue and her not being brought to task for committing perjury. My initial reaction was real disappointment - she never seems to be held accountable.
But then I thought (1) she would have dragged him into it with more nonsense and blamed him and his team (2) she may not acknowledge it but she is living with the accountability for what she's done. She's gone from being the wife of one of the most beloved movie stars in the world, to a loathed yet somehow able to get a few deals and be girlfriend of one of the world's richest men, to ........ nothing.
So all-in-all be glad that JD doesn't have to get his lawyers involved again and the press and all of the circus around AH and Australia.
