And now our favorite Pirates of the Caribbean star, Johnny Depp seems to be caught in an ugly situation. In the series of evidence presented against Heard, it was revealed that ACLU helped her draft and publish the defamatory op-ed in The Washington Post. And now a Manhattan judge has stated that JD must pay the ACLU $38,000 owing to the evidence he used against his ex-wife during the trial.

ACLU is in favor of Amber Heard

American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), an NPO requested $86,000 in attorneys’ fees for dealing with subpoenas. The $86,000 was claimed to be for “considerable expense spent responding to onerous subpoenas served by Mr. Depp from an underlying action in which neither the ACLU nor any of its employees are parties,” according to Stephanie Teplin, the ACLU’s lawyer, according to Law & Crime. However, after Depp’s attorneys filed a petition, Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Arthur Engoron decided they only receive less than half of that amount.

Stephanie Teplin claims that during a six-year period, Depp requested thousands of papers as he prepared for the defamation trial. The initial demand made by the ACLU was deemed “exorbitant and unreasonable” by Depp’s lawyer, Jessica Meyers. “They [ACLU] were responsible for drafting and placing the op-ed that the Virginia jury just found to be defamatory to Mr. Depp,” Meyers said.

Evidence presented at trial established that the ACLU assisted Heard in drafting and publishing the op-ed in The Washington Post. Despite not receiving the money Heard had promised, the non-profit group supported her throughout the whole lawsuit. And now that our Captain Jack Sparrow is in trouble we cannot just overlook it.

Not that it is difficult for Johnny Depp to pay the mentioned amount, it is just inappropriate for him to suffer when he finally came out of the trial as the winner after losing almost ‘everything.’ Fans are outraged and they appear not to handle it in a light manner.
