This dude’s expert witness career is finished.

For a psychiatrist, he is unable to control his hands and facial expressions from loosing control is utterly strange

Yup, very telling indeed!

Are they sure he's the actual Dr rather than one of his patients escaped from a psych ward!

She seemed to get angry about a previous cross examination so I am guessing one party objected and had the deposition cut short before it was played? I'm not sure who was questioning her? She seemed to fire a bit of a headshot at Ambers sister though partway through that.

Apparently TMZ have just filed an emergency motion for protective order in relation to the confidentiality of the person who leaked one of the videos, if my understanding of the documentation is correct.

Quite telling…

Do you think they will get it though, looks like TMZ are trying to cover their asses.

Let’s not forget Johnny Depp was dropped by the Harry Porter franchise even tho JK Rowling supported him as well as disneys pirate franchise. $50mil seems light to me tbh. It should be close to $200m if he stayed at the both franchises
Claiming absurdly large amounts of damages make the case even more difficult to win, and much more likely to be dismissed outright. $50 million would already be the largest amount for defamation damages ever awarded in US history. If any damages are awarded to JD they will be substantially lower. Heard's $100 million countersue is even more unlikely to go anywhere. JD's lawyers likely advised him that $50 million was the maximum he could go for without risking an outright dismissal.

Yeah, this was my thought from day 1 but money isn't the biggest motivation here.
This is more about coming away with a positive image and I think the trial has already
improved things for Depp. Time will tell how this affects their careers.

Yeah no doubt. Working out loss of income is highly speculative.

I think AH’s countersue of $100 goes to show how her mentality works - like a bully. If someone does something to me, I am going to double down and do it twice as much to them. I don’t think she s been given best legal advice but also she probably doesn’t listen to her legal team either. They probably told her not to mention Kate Moss yet she still did.

It would be wonderful if she release the lawyers and somehow the lawyers on her side able to do a tell-all story. I think a lot of the **** we hear about it rumours might be quite juicy in the background. Does that further affirm public opinion about her or supports her side of stories - who knows.

It's already over for AH, all the videos and sound clips make her look unhinged and a crazy bitch. No one is going to touch that with a bargepole. The best she can hope for is tiny budget straight to streaming indy movies after a few years, if she's lucky.

I think Depp will take break for a few years and probably come back with a big fanfare in a big-budget movie

Not sure if the motion will be granted due to how they worded it according to Rob from law & lumber (he's a lawyer in the fairfax court)

It was also only filed after the witness list was leaked (by AH's team probably) so could be considered as attempting to silence a witness.
