Amber Heard’s team is now arguing for the case to be dismissed.
In a Virginia courtroom this week, Johnny Depp’s $50 million defamation case against ex-wife Amber Heard continues.
It was the 12th day of testimony in the case, and it came after allegations that Heard had fired her public relations team over the weekend.
Heard is now attempting to have the case dismissed entirely.
Caroline Patrickis (3 May) tweeted: “BREAKING: Amber Heard is trying to have the case dismissed right now.”
The hashtag #JusticeForJohnny has received almost 6.7 billion views on social media over the weekend, but the hashtag #JusticeForAmberHeard has only had 25 million views.
Judge Penney Azcarate has denied the motion to strike after reviewing the evidence and listening to the arguments from Chew and Rottenborn.
She told the court that she has denied the motion on two parts, and will take advisement on a third part.
Ben Chew, Depp’s lawyer, has opposed Rottenborn’s motion to strike in a length speech in the court.
He said the actor is within his rights to pursue a defamation suit, adding: ‘Let’s hear from Amber Heard.’
