My goodness! AH and her legal team certainly have given themselves a lot of work for zero results. Not to mention, she still hasn't provided any evidence of abuse. Has she given her deposition yet? I think not at this point. Her latest requests are frivolous and I hope will cost her above and beyond her means. She should focus more on tossing in the towel than her crazy efforts in character assassination.

They mutually agreed to delay all major depositions until after the bulk of discovery is complete. That way no one can surprise or sand bag either party with just discovered documents

Thanks for the corrections, Lbock. The case conference must be what I was thinking of.

I’ve wondered why Mr. Harris would want anything to do with this mess from the first we learned of his coming on board. Also, his presence gives rise to the ever present question of who is picking up Rocky’s growing tab. Also wonder if Harris was party to the seemingly less than professional “sharing” spirit between the attorneys for Brooks in his suit vs JD and the attorneys for AH in JD’s defamation suit. Do the Judges also compare notes?

Really? A subpoena now to Bloom for more records that have NOTHING TO DO WITH THE CASE AGAINST HER??? What part of that doesn't her lawyer understand?

Thank you for the link, ForeverYoung.

Do you suppose Mr.Waldman et al were expecting these requests? Would a ruling for Bloom to comply be justification to push back the Depp/Bloom trial currently scheduled for November? Just think, even if every single demand was fulfilled to the letter, not a one would include an iota of evidence proving Johnny was the perpetrator of DV on AH at any time in their relationship.

What an absolute perversion of our justice system! And from, of all people, Kaplan who once commented: “ . . . I like to think I’m someone who does what I think is right, even if it’s at cost.” (Makers interview, 05/22/16, segment entitled “I Love To Talk”). For what: The promise of world-wide publicity, of course, the flames of which Kaplan has already demonstrated she is eager to stoke.

Exactly! Just reading that made me sick. Reminds me of her lawsuit against Doug Stanhope (and the 21 John Does) when he dared to stick up for Johnny in the press. The linked subpoena seeks information involving Depp's friends and employees (Witkin, Wyatt, Christi) as well as Warner Brothers and the former head of Warner Brothers. I guess anyone who tries to stick up for Johnny needs to worry about "the independent woman" getting her $ugar daddy's money to harass them legally.

Who does this no-talent :censored: think she is? I hope the judge can see these bullying ridiculous requests for what they are and also that Depp's legal team can defeat this subpoena. This :censored: , who owes any stardom to her relationship with Johnny, not only has been trying to destroy him for years, but is now also trying to bury him with legal costs as punishment for his trying to get justice. Musk, the ACLU, Bloom et al. combined have a lot more money than Johnny. Johnny has wealthy friends but I doubt his pride would let him accept financial help. I would contribute to a gofundme on his behalf whether he needed it or not (just to help squash the :censored:), but I think he didn't want people seeing him as a charity case, which he isn't.

Johnny's legal team can do a motion to quash the subpoena. I think they have a good chance of winning because what she is seeking has nothing to do with Johnny's deformation case against her.

I googled and as far as I can tell Johnny's team can't do anything yet. Bloom et al would have to quash it or deny parts of it as Dr. Kipper did. Depp team would use a Limine motion later to keep anything inadmissible. But she is trying to get her hands on everything and anything to hold over him and yet still try to get it dismissed. Despicable.

BUT, maybe they can file some motion overall that they are harassing Johnny and harming him in public by asking for documents that don't exist or dont apply to the case????

Bloom & co might actually want to provide any documents they have that are negative for Depp - unlike others who have been subpoenaed.
If Depp lawyers can't cancel the Bloom subpoena, they might want to expand it so that it also asks for any documents that reference Amber Heard's physical violence and substance abuse (not just John Depp's). They might also ask for Australian documents until April 2016 not just March 2015 so the dog smuggling is included.
(I have doubts that Australian law enforcement were involved in finger injury. Johnny didn't tell the doctor what really happened and a doctor doesn't have to report it. An injury to a child should be reported but not an adult.)

Johnny Deep Assault Case: See The Photo Of Him And The Alleged Victim Hugging And Smiling After Incident

Johnny Depp claims the guy who sued him for assault after an incident on a movie set, asked for a selfie and then hugged it out with the actor. We have a copy of the photo, and it clearly shows Depp was telling the truth. We have obtained a copy of the actual selfie, that Johnny Depp claims Rocky Brooks asked for, after having a toast following their argument.

As you can see, both Johnny and Rocky are smiling and Brooks doesn't seem to show any injuries from the incident. We're told the picture has been filed into evidence, by Depp, into the case. Depp is hoping to prove Brooks is exaggerating their interaction on the set. Depp testified during his deposition Brooks and him squashed their beef and toasted some red wine to celebrate the end of shooting. While talking, he says Brooks asked for a picture with the star. Our sources say, Brooks actually sent the photo to other people with an indication everything was all good with Depp. In one case, it included the quote, "that's a wrap" including a emoji with sunglasses and a smiley face.

One of those people, send the photo along with text exchanges with Brooks to lawyers in the case.

"In fact, I brought -- I'd had my assistant bring a bottle of wine. And we toasted in I think paper cups. And, you know, no harm, no foul. I apologized. He apologized. Gave him a hug. We embraced. You know, I hugged him. And everything was cool. As a matter of fact, he asked for a selfie with me. And so I took a selfie with him," Depp said during deposition questioning.

Depp's attorney Adam Waldman tells The Blast, "Today, one more whistleblower who doesn’t know Mr. Depp felt compelled to come forward to defend the truth by presenting a photograph and text exchanges. And yesterday, Judge Fujie denied all of Rocky Brooks’ motions, which were transparent attempts to turn his looming trial into a circus by citing irrelevancies like Amber Heard’s unrelated hoax allegations. Mr. Brooks’ motions exposed what his lawyers Tamar Arminak and Arbella Azizian meant when they said they were "working with Amber Heard’s counsel Eric George.” We intend to seek sanctions against Mr. Brooks counsel for malicious prosecution after the trial."

I suspect that the comment "We intend to seek sanctions against Mr. Brooks counsel for malicious prosecution after the trial" is a reason that Brooks has not dropped his suit. If Brooks drops it, Depp's lawyers will sue him any. Brooks only chance to not be sued by Depp is to continue to trial and win. If, as many suspect, Brooks is being financially supported by people with their own Depp lawsuits (Bloom or Heard), then he it is not worse off for continuing to trial.

Yes, everything was all well and good with Brooks until he was presented with an agreement not to sue which he refused to sign and he said he got fired because of that but he could have just gotten fired because of his actions.
