Yes. Johnny said in his May 2019 Virginia declaration.
(page 7)
I went to pick up my things on May 21, 2016, and also resolved to tell her that I was divorcing her. I arrived at the penthouse in the early evening, and brought my two security guards Jerry Judge and Sean Bett as a precautionary measure, asking them to wait just outside the door of penthouse 3. It appeared that Ms, Heard was alone in the penthouse, although according to witness interviews, she was not. Her friend Raquel Pennington was hiding somewhere in the penthouse, although Ms Pennington later falsely testified that she was summoned by Ms. Heard by text to Penthouse 3 at 8:06 PM, one of their many concocted lies.
(page 8)
Suddenly, Ms. Pennington comes out of nowhere and runs towards Ms, Heard from behind me and yells: “don’t do it, stop it, leave her alone.” Because she came from the direction of the front door, and did not come past my security guards outside, she could only have been hiding in the closet, waiting for the signal. Ms. Pennington’ s ex-husband who was present in penthouse 5 advised that Ms, Pennington lied about being summoned by Ms Heard at 8.06 by text, because Ms. Pennington was in fact hiding in my penthouse 3 all along.

Or did the women know or guess that the bodyguards would be near by? Their behaviour sounds theatrical - and frankly also melodramatic - to me, but why perform if one has no audience?
Could Amber perhaps have taped the scene, and hoped that it would sound convincing later? But then thrown it out because Jerry and Sean came in, and probably said something which revealed that Johnny was nowhere near her?

It's a good point Meeps we know she liked taping stuff. I think the reason to stage it might also be part of her gaslighting tendency, so she could mess with him and say - you remember when you hit me with the phone etc. She'd previously pulled a trick with red nail varnish according to one of his friends.

The court posted the order to let Kaplan and her crew out of the case but not the motion papers. They did not post the actual motion papers.

Thanks so much for the update, ForeverYoung, but I get an error message with the link: a “Page cannot be found” thing.

Hope he will be safe and victorious. :heart2:

There is something going around, I caught a glimpse early this morning on Twitter. Is Adam Waldman in trouble with the bar? Or is it just a smear campaign?

It’s a smear campaign by her stans but especially the crazy one. Christina Taft. She’s tagging Kaplan even though she’s left

If she had one medical record stating injuries from abuse that match up to any dates she claims, she would have released it in 2016, and most certainly would have shut down this lawsuit from the very beginning. Kaplan would have for sure.
Ah, but she did. In August 2016 she entered that 2014 photo of herself (taken by herself) holding a pill bottle as evidence claiming the pills were prescribed to her by her doctor because of Johnnys abuse.
A photo which, unlike all her other ‘evidence’ photos, disappeared from circulation almost as soon as it was ‘leaked’. *wink*

So I heard. Wink. I actually heard it was just two pills in the palm of her hand. No bottle?

I remember the photo. It was a bottle but the label on it wasn't even clear and she showed no injuries. I'm not getting where people are going with these photos from when Johnny was away. She never alleged those injuries as part of the incident nor did she use any of them as evidence. If she had these injuries as a result of the alleged incident in May why not show them off when she showed off the fake bruise on the face?

I think that’s the point. She had no injuries at the time Johnny could have caused them. Later for the TRO walk of “fame” she had that “bruise” mark. And both pics from May and Dec show a small cut. Anyway the point is what ever she may have had was not caused by Johnny

This made sense

Yes, but she never said he tried to strangle her in May or produced pics of a bruised neck. This is what I don't get.

JD's team filed the Affidavit of Service for Children's Hospital of Los Angeles on 6/10/20.

The Judge signs the order for Kaplan to withdraw on 6/17/20.

Sometime in between Kaplan files papers to withdraw as counsel and A.H. gets a new attorney.

Coincidence that AH hired a lawyer that, among other fields, specializes in breach of contract and defamation? Seems to me like she is worried about being screwed by breaking the settlement agreement.

I agree, but I think this was in the works much longer. They would have to bring the new attorney up to speed. I think this became an issue when the audios were released. Kaplan et al waited for the demurrer ruling, then we get an illegal recording of Laua D, and then we have Melanie getting cold feet, and then the children's/aclu subpoena.

I think this new attorney, as you also said, is to bring a new line of attack. I think she may attack the damages side. AH team did file much earlier for bifucation.

Kaplan, et al withdrawl has just been accepted, and the newest filing/response is filed by Elaine already. She is fully up to speed and taken over filing from Rottenthorn. https://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/circuit/s ... 061920.pdf
