Wow thank you - just leaves you speechless - I hadn't seen before the witness statements from the two people at the house. What's do natural and organic and truthful about all of this is that these various statements make total sense when you've heard her ranting at him on the audio tape. The part when he is being taken to hospital and she is hysterically going between calling him a coward and begging him not to leave is also reminiscent of what Tara Roberts described on the island.

So more information a twitter friend found.
Cowan that Johnny mentions in his tweet to Dr. Kipper (the full tweet that Brian has in his video). is "The Love Doctor" Amber was papped with after filing the TRO. He was also writing a book with Dr. Kipper.

He has also been subpoenaed by Kaplan for a deposition for Dec 23. Not sure it happened.

In the Text Johnny Says:
"Cowan has down me the most cruel of favors"

I wonder if Dr. Cowan was serving as their marriage therapist and got them to make those videos.

More. Awful. And her lawyers? All they have to rely on is that he admitted in a text to cutting off his own finger - sorry guys - we saw the full text yesterday. Cherry picking doesn't even begin to cover it.

Sounds like a gruesome, awful mess. Jerry didn't know he was being recorded and not all of it is good for JD (although much of what he is saying is what Amber told him) - Amber admitted to throwing the bottles first, admitted to hitting him. He threw a bottle at the window. So yes it sounds like he smash stuff up. But take this and the testimonies of those present. I just cannot get over that all her lawyer has is that text to Dr Kipper - sorry that part text.

Sorry I am making no sense - read the article. Cannot wait for Brian to unpick this one!!

It fits what Johnny said. They had an argument over the post up. He went down stairs to get away and started drinking vodka. No drugs. She came down and made it physical. Punched him and threw bottles. Admitted. Jerry said he had a burn. She starts lying. He did it himself. He took 10 ecstasy. (Orig 8 over days). Her story falls completely apart all her scenarios.

Johnny got angry and damaged scenery. But how much she did to? He admitted to painting on walls. No one mentions urinating (they didn’t know they were being recorded)

She only has a few scratches on her arm and takes anti-psychotic meds. Mostly like stress induced self harm to “self soothe” (we’ve heard that word from her) They are giving her a triple dose to settle her. So yes she did probably go to sleep. Or they took her right to the airport hotel, so no time to take photos

She’s certainly not naked. And they aren’t letting her stay near him.

Johnny is taken away. All In hours NOT days. After Johnny gone Amber starts on what she says happened.

And the text he sent to Kipper for help was coherent. Good spelling. Punctuation. So he wasn’t wasted or high

She might have been. Made no attempt to get him help. She was out of her mind. I think she was taking the ecstasy she keeps bringing up. What she does wrong, ultimately she claims he does.

The audio is extremely painful to listen to. Did I misunderstand?

Did Jerry Judge say that AH told him she put a cigarette out in his face?

If Johnny took 10 ecstasy pills, why did it not show up in the hospital? Nothing came up in the medical records?

Hard to understand, with AH screaming in the background. She needs a straight jacket.

I think you've nailed it Lbock.

One of the reasons his testimony has always had such credibility for me is that he doesn't paint himself whiter than white - you are right in his declaration he said he went downstairs and was drinking again (to get away from her).

Whilst there are details not in his declaration (you are always told by lawyers to only make the points salient to the story) - the timescale, rhythms, narrative of what he says happened seems to be backed up - by the witnesses as well.

I haven't listened to any recordings yet, I feel like I need to pour myself a stiff drink before I can.

I was noticing yesterday, the video of his very calm, genuine testimony - how well he looked, despite being in a formal, official setting and having to recount painful memories. He literally looked like a totally different person from the photo of him and Amber in January 2016 when they were at that film festival (the one where he hugs Kate Winslet like his life depended on it). I also noticed in the testimony he did the classic trick which people do (nice, normal people I mean) when they have to tell a sad or difficult story that they smile and pepper with small sweet anecdotes as a way to help the listener feel comfortable.

The injustice in all of this is just monstrous.

I've listened to it 3 times.

If you are going to pour yourself one, you had better make it a double.

I haven't pulled myself together yet. Totally heart-wrenching.

The highlight of the audio does prove that she's lied several times about what happened in Australia.

Part of the process. He filed a summons/complaint and now she has to answer it.

Everything else she’s done has been to dismiss it. But even though the judge was dealing with her venue motion and demurrer, he never stayed (or stopped) discovery
Rule 3:8 - Answers, Pleas, Demurrers and Motions, Va. R. Sup. Ct. 3:8 (“
a) Response Requirement. A defendant shall file pleadings in response within 21 days after service of the summons and complaint upon that defendant, or if service of the summons has been timely waived on request under Code § 8.01-286.1, within 60 days after the date when the request for waiver was sent, or within 90 days after that date if the defendant was addressed outside the Commonwealth. A demurrer, plea, motion to dismiss, and motion for a bill of particulars shall each be deemed a pleading in response for the count or counts addressed therein. If a defendant files no other pleading than the answer, it shall be filed within said time. An answer shall respond to the paragraphs of the complaint. A general denial of the entire complaint or plea of the general issue shall not be permitted.
(b) Response After Demurrer, Plea or Motion. When the court has entered its order overruling all motions, demurrers and other pleas filed by a defendant, such defendant shall, unless the defendant has already done so, file an answer within 21 days after the entry of such order, or within such shorter or longer time as the court may prescribe.

That is correct. All those motions to dismiss were her trying to avoid filing an Answer to the Complaint. She will now have to either admit, deny, or be without knowledge, as to each count listed in Johnny's Complaint BUT it is important to keep in mind that she can she can also reserve the right to amend some her responses at a later date. My guess is that she's going to play stupid and say she is without knowledge as to certain counts against her and then Waldman will produce a text or recording or something to prove she was lying because she is that predictable, imo.
