Jeffrey Wolf Weighs in on Amber Heard vs Johnny Depp Defamation Case

Johnny Depp sued his ex-wife, Amber Heard, for defamation over an op-ed piece Heard wrote for The Washington Post. In the 2018 article, Heard claimed to be a “public figure representing domestic abuse,” which Depp claims cost him lucrative acting roles and is the basis for his $50 million suit against Heard.

Amber Heard countersued her ex-husband, Johnny Depp, for defamation over statements Depp’s attorneys made about her abuse claims. During day 20 of the case, the direct examination of Heard began, in which she made claims that her op-ed piece was not the reason Depp had lost acting roles, rather other news outlets were also reporting on claims of his abuse.  Jeffrey Wolf weighs in on the approach of how the Jury could view this specific piece of information.

“Well, I think what she is trying to do, and she’s doing a pretty darn good job of it, is showing that the op-ed is not the cause of his problems… The fact that there was unflattering press coming out about him on the same day that the op-ed was posted makes it hard for the jury to know which of these two things caused what happened directly after that. Was it the unflattering article or it the op-ed that Amber Heard wrote.”
