Johnny Depp takes another loss in his attempt to battle against the claims being made against him since 2018. The Britain Court decides to deny the actors appeal for the judge’s controversial ruling against him in last year’s libel case against The Sun.
Johnny Depp’s Case
Judges ruled that Johnny Depp is incapable of opposing the High Court’s rejection of his lawsuit. Jurists James Dingemans and Nicholas Underhill claimed that the previous hearing was “full and fair” and that the judge’s decision has “not been shown even arguably to be vitiated by any error of approach or mistake of law.” The judges made it crystal-clear that the case does not have any optimistic results and that it is better to end it sooner rather than later.
Be that as it may, the star wishes to continue the case. Arguing that he has not been given the opportunity of a fair hearing. His lawyers pulled out the audio evidence of Amber Heard presumably being truthful about her abusive relationship with Depp and that not a single soul will believe him. The lawyers also mentioned about Heard not living up to the promise to distribute her $7 million divorce settlement to charity.
The mention of the promise to charity seemed to change the view of one High Court Justice Andrew Nicol. “Her donation of the seven million U.S. dollars to charity is hardly the act one would expect of a gold-digger,” Nicol stated in his ruling in November. The change of opinion did not influence the other judges as they said “it is pure speculation, and in our view very unlikely” that the disposition of the divorce money influenced the decision of Nicol to toss the case.
#JusticeForJohnnyDepp Goes Viral Again
The battle seems to still be running its course as the two stars are not done putting in the gloves just yet. The same can be said about their followers as the hashtag, #JusticeForJohnnyDepp, becomes even more viral with the latest hearing. It seems as the fans will continue to support the actor even after him suffering multiple blows, not only from the legal perspective. The case has been on a streak with Johnny Depp’s career as it only continues to keep him away from the franchises that he flourished in, Pirates Of The Caribbean as well as Fantastic Beasts.
