Camille Vasquez, Johnny Depp’s lawyer, is becoming increasingly famous, as she has continued to receive multiple TV offers, following the case verdict. Vasquez and her partner Benjamin G. Chew, who both assisted Depp in winning his defamation trial against ex-wife Amber Heard on June 1, are now poised to participate in a new documentary series about the trial. Here are the specifics about the same:
The first docuseries about Johnny Depp and Amber Heard:
The dramatic separation and divorce of Johnny Depp and Amber Heard in 2016 was only the tip of the spectacle that was going to unravel over the next several years. A Discovery+ docu-series titled Johnny vs Amber delves into the events that led to their marriage’s downfall. It includes unique, in-depth chats with the attorneys who represented both sides. The series explores the considerable evidence utilized throughout Depp’s defamation lawsuit against The Sun in the UK, where he lost. This is a two-part docu-series in which people close to Depp discuss his marital relationship and the libel action in Episode 1 and others close to Heard do the same in Episode 2.
Discovery+ show to have Camille Vasquez:
The attorneys that defended Depp, Camille Vasquez, and Benjamin G. Chew, will participate in the second season of Johnny vs. Amber, which will include comprehensive testimony and conversations with the lawyers, as well as advocates from Heard’s camp. This time, the spotlight will be on Depp’s latest defamation trial in Fairfax County, Virginia, which resulted in a $10 million compensation and $5 million punitive damages verdict from Heard (which was later reduced to a maximum of $350,000, per state law).
“When we commissioned Johnny vs. Amber for Discovery+, we knew that we were tackling a very sensitive case but one with a huge global profile and interest that would resonate with our audience,” said Clare Laycock, Senior VP, Planning and Insights, Head of Entertainment, Warner Bros. “Since it premiered in December last year, Johnny vs. Amber has been one of the most successful unscripted discovery+ Originals, currently the number 1 acquisition driver in the UK”.
Camille Vasquez’s brilliant attorney profile:
Vasquez was upgraded to a partnership in her firm, Brown Rudnick, during the trial, when millions saw her question Heard on the witness stand about her inability to contribute her $7 million divorce proceedings to charity, along with many other topics. During final statements, Vasquez bashed the actress, encouraging the jury to perceive Depp as the abused partner and Heard as the abuser. “There is an abuser in this courtroom, but it is not Mr. Depp,” Vasquez said. “And there is a victim of domestic abuse in this courtroom, but it is not Ms. Heard”. Vasquez went on to label Heard’s statements “the performance of her life” in the witness box, emphasizing that she is not a good actor.
“She spun a story of shocking, overwhelming, brutal abuse. She came into this courtroom prepared to give the performance of her life, and she gave it,” Depp’s attorney said of Heard, before reminding the jury that the actress’ acting coach had testified that Heard “has difficulty crying when she is acting. You saw it: Ms. Heard sobbing without tears while spinning elaborate, exaggerated, fantastical account of abuse,” Vasquez said. “It was a performance. She told you what she thinks you need to hear to convict this man as a domestic abuser and a rapist”.
