And COVID keeps changing things. They make claims that weren’t true when the filed or served Johnny.

He might not have to quarantine in the US. But on going back to England I think he would have to, and so loose more valuable time which otherwise could/should have been use for filming the movie. Am I right or wrong there?

UPDATE: Forget about it :blush: I found the answer myself :biggrin:

More documents. As many anticipated, AH team is trying to disqualify and sanction Adam for all his public Twitter posts, Public quotes in articles and somehow fans getting evidence they released (Brian)

FYI: what they are referencing regarding Josh Drew's deposition. Here is the excerpt where Kaplan insisted in marking the whole Deposition protected, and Chew saying she was just going to file more frivilous motions

Went back and crossreferenced regarding Josh Drew.

He gave his deposition in November 2019. He then wrote his UK (NGN) Witness Statement in February 2020. He stated he was attaching his deposition. BUT, remember, the USA deposition he gave was marked confidential (So Josh Drew violated the protective order)

4. I was deposed on 19 November 2019 in John C. Depp v Amber Laura Heard Civil Action
No: CL-2019-002911 in the Circuit Court of Fairfax County Virginia. I attach the transcri pt
of the deposition as a true record of it.


The Daily Mail reported on it after he submitted it to UK trial (It wasn't leaked before then). I would think that puts Adam in the clear.

LBock: AW is in the clear, yes?
EB producing more toilet paper - JD is in the filming. EB received the letter from WB at the same time as team Depp. How can EB legitimize her request to have him do three days for a deposition and expect him to travel to Virginia? Quarantine plays a part in this correct?

I realize AH & EB are trying to have this dismissed again. How many more times are they allowed to try?

So a group of us, including a couple lawyers, are disecting her latest claims against Adam and she makes a huge, egregious error...

Much of what she claims Adam leaked, was provided to the Depp vs NGN trial as evidence (via discovery).
1. AH violated the protective order and provided the Australia drug texts to NGN
2. Josh Drew attached his own deposition to his NGN Witness Statement, which was stamped confidential. So either he violated the protective order himself by attaching it, or (as a lawyer is telling us), Ah lawyer provided NGN with a copy of the Depo as rarely are copies (marked confidential, thus after transcribed and filed) provided to the deponent - Josh shouldn't have had a copy marked confidential.
3. They claim Vanessa (and Winona) Declarations were not filed in VA and Adam misled them to be "official court documents" They are official court documents as they were submitted in the UK trial and both were scheduled to testify.
4. Texts between Elon and AH were also submitted to NGN trial and were actually read out in the court room and part of AH testimony.
5. The Kilacky declaration was submitted in the Depp vs NGN UK case. It was the subject of pre-trial hearing of its admissability - a public hearing attended by press.

So AH lawyer Elaine is trying to steer Judge White away from the knowledge that there has already been another trial, using much of the same evidence that was widely reported by all the English tabloids (she is citing). She is claiming Adam should be sanctioned for leaking VA trial evidence but it was also UK evidence.

I can answer regarding Adam releasing (not leaking) texts by her parents, or his medical information on his finger. Without a protective order in place, I don't understand what Adam could have violated. The documents were eventually turned over to AH within the time alotted.

It's just another desperate attempt to stop the negative comments, imo, and they especially are concerned about her affairs while she was married to JD getting leaked. She is blacklisted big time for what she started and now it's all Waldman's fault just like everything else that happens is someone else's fault.

Oh well, another day another filing for the ex saying the same things over and over. Her new lawyer is getting really boring.

ForeverYoung: Agreed. This is getting old. I am sure the Judge White isn't going to be happy about this AGAIN.

A few comments (text) to PB, and AH falls apart. What about what she said privately in text and more importantly did publicly during her speaking engagements?

Does AW have the right to respond?

Yes, parties have the right to respond until the judge puts a stop to it. All these motions are making them look really desperate. The judge denied her motion for sanctions against Waldman before JD's team even responded. When she looses this case, she will most likely appeal, imo.

So Amber filed several Limine motions to make certain things off limits, like her prior arrest, her donations, Any third party hearsay evidence regarding her mom, and not allowing anything Johnny files beyond aug 15 to be used in his defense. ALL OF THESE WERE DENIED. Twitter is celebrating, but I’m more cautious. Depp team argued against each of these items but also argued it was too early in the pre-trial process to file limines (exclude or inadmissible) before discovery was completed. So it’s possible that is why the judge denied-procedural error

https://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/circuit/s ... 8-2020.pdf

The subpoenas for CHLA and Jennifer Howell (Amber trying to quash them) are the jurisdiction of California and to be heard 10/29. She is also arguing with Disney on a subpoena that they haven’t provided all they asked for. The Motion to Compel and Sanctions for Disney is to be heard 10/29 also.

As far as I can see the motion in Adam to sanction him and install a new protective order is still to be heard.
This is what I could put together for now:

As we know, Depp team filed a Demurrer and Plea in Bar against her $100M counterclaim. Amber has filed her opposition. Depp has one more filing before it is to be heard 10/16. It could take weeks or months for the judge to return his verdict on it

So much word soup and BS, :lol: . And I love on twitter we know have lawyers interested and supporting Johnny and helping us decider this. Here is a thread to help sort out her filing, Click on Andrea’s comment and then it will open to her twitter thread- she has a laundry list of each of Amber’s responses

For Amber’s claim regarding VCCA (Virginia Computer Crimes Act) I found the following. And Johnny didn’t act "If any person, with the intent to coerce, intimidate, or harass any person," in those texts to Bettany or anyone else. Just venting to friends.
