The trial of Johnny Depp and Amber Heard is like a show now. That can be watched on television Monday through Thursday.
The reason for this is that the case’s judge, Penney Azcarate, has already scheduled this break due to personal obligations. So, there will be no session this week. We will have to wait until May 16 to see how things go.
Here’s Why Johnny Depp and Amber Heard Aren’t in Court This Week
The trial between Depp and Heard started on Monday, April 11 in Fairfax County Virginia. It is expected to last six weeks. The date for final statements will be presented next Friday, May 27. Back then, many people have spoken out, including the two victims. They have explained their side of the story, detailing everything.
Heard will continue giving testimony on 16 May. She has already spoken much about her troubled relationship with Depp. She detailed physical fights. The court heard a harsh statement about an alleged sexual assault on Heard. It was during a brutal and bloody controversy in Australia in 2015.
In 2018, Amber Heard wrote about culture’s wrath for women who speak out about sexual violence. Three years later, that wrath is getting out both within and outside of the courtroom. Writes Rachel Sharp.
Earlier she described an unusual and remarkable first meeting with Depp. And a ripening relationship as she fell head over heels in love. However, her testimony took a darker turn as she recalled the first time he allegedly hit her. His jealousy, and his drug and alcohol use made things worse according to her statements.
In his early testimony, Depp said he was fighting back against Heard’s accusations, in part, for his children’s sake. Heard’s team this week motioned to have the case dismissed. It was denied.
Depp’s team says Heard delivered a performance of her life. While Heard’s team says Depp’s case is soon falling apart. For now, Johnny Depp and Amber Heard allocated dueling testimonies sharing confidence in their respective legal team. The defamation trial stands as the Virginia court proceedings take a week’s break.
So for now, The defamation trial between actors Johnny Depp and Amber Heard is taking a 10-day break from testimony. Judge Penney Azcarate informed both sides and the jury at the start of the trial. She had a scheduling conflict due to a conference this week.
Amber Heard sued Depp, claiming that he has launched a smear campaign against her. And seeking $100 million for damages. Who will emerge victorious? The final decision will have to wait a little longer.
