The Johnny Depp Trial – The Main Issues That Came Up

The jury in the Johnny Depp trial found Depp not guilty of the charges of assault and battery. While many in the entertainment industry supported the actor, many others in the courtroom were not so vocal. Some were angry with Depp’s handling of the case. The following is a look at the main issues that came up during the trial. First, a look at the injuries sustained by Heard. While it is important to note that Heard did not receive a permanent scar, it was still painful to watch.

Heard’s former makeup artist covered up Heard’s bruised face

Amber Heard’s former makeup artist testified in court that she covered up Heard’s bruised face in photos of her alleged abuse by Johnny Depp. Inglessis never personally witnessed Heard’s physical abuse with the actor. However, she said she was able to make up her bruised face using red blood lipstick. Amber Heard testified that Depp had physically abused her before the Corden show.

During the Johnny Depp trial, Heard’s former makeup artist, Kristy Sexton, said she saw Heard’s face bruised on several occasions. She said that the makeup artist had experience covering up bruises and creating special effects on models. She also testified that Heard often cried during her sessions with Depp. She also testified that she could hear the actor and Heard scream at one another.

It was a controversial trial. The jury decided that Johnny Depp’s actions were illegal and were motivated by jealousy and revenge. Ultimately, the jury found Depp guilty of the charges against him. The trial lasted over five months, and the verdict will be announced on November 2.

The evidence against Depp and Heard continued to mount. It is not yet clear if Depp is innocent of the charges, but Raquel Pennington’s testimony, who dated Heard during their relationship with Depp, said she overheard and Depp staged a fight in May 2016.

After proving innocence against the charges against Johnny Depp, Heard’s former makeup artist Melanie Gibson claimed to know where Amber’s bruised face was. The relationship between Heard and Gibson ended after she divorced Johnny Depp. She has since worked with big brands like ARMANI and renowned directors and photographers. The jury will hear her testimony this week.

Tillett Wright testified that Depp would get “misogynistic and cruel”

Tillett Wright, a former friend of Amber Heard, testified that he once alleged that Johnny Depp had become “misogynistic and abusive” while drinking and doing cocaine. He said that Johnny Depp would make sexist, abusive remarks to Heard, and was particularly cruel to Heard when he was drunk or high. Wright’s testimony was cited in a restraining order filed by Heard after she was allegedly assaulted by the actor.

When asked about the timeline of the letter and the “misogynistic and abusive” remarks, Tillett Wright told the court that Johnny Depp was the aggressor and lied to protect himself. He also referred to the ongoing legal battle with Depp. She also questioned if Depp ever apologized to Heard.

In his video deposition, Tillett Wright said that Johnny Depp was “cruel” and “misogynistic and abusive” to Heard. She described the relationship as chaotic and violent. The court played clips of the conversation between the two, and she told the judge that she did not want to hurt Depp by going public.

Although some have defended Depp, the truth is much more complicated. The actor’s use of pronouns has been the source of controversy. His use of the pronoun “we” in his comments on Heard has also been questioned. Wright testified that the actor was “mean” when he was drunk and under the influence of drugs. The actor won damages of $15 million and $2 million.

Tillett Wright testified that Johnny Deapp was “cruel” and “misogynistic” in a similar lawsuit in the UK. The article in question used a headline describing him as a “wife-beater” and the judge found that the headline was “substantially true.”

Inglessis testified that she didn’t see any injuries to Heard the night before

Melanie Inglessis, the makeup artist for Amber Heard, testified that she didn’t notice any bruises on Johnny Depp the night of the fight. Inglessis also said that she didn’t notice any injuries on Amber Heard the night of the fight. She testified that she didn’t notice any bruises on Depp the night of the fight, but she was able to see the reddened scalp and bruises.

Pennington, a close friend of Depp’s who lived with him in one of his penthouses, testified that she didn’t see Depp hit Heard the night of the fight. Pennington testified that she was present during the altercation and saw blood all over Heard, but didn’t see Depp throw anything at Heard.

After the attack, Inglessis contacted Depp’s team and explained that she hadn’t seen any injuries to Johnny Depp the night before. She said that Depp was very friendly to her, but they also got into a fight, and she had no way of avoiding him. Her testimony is crucial, as it could help the prosecution in the case.

Heard’s testimony was also critical in the case. She alleged that Depp was violent and attacked Amber Heard after she apologized. She also said that she had a video of Depp crashing up the kitchen and apologizing. It was a five-minute video of Depp threatening to cut himself and begging Heard not to do it.

Amber Heard and Johnny Depp spent a month apart after the April 2016 fight. However, they reunited around the time of Depp’s mother’s death. The couple had an altercation, during which Heard allegedly hit Depp with a can. Inglessis testified that she didn’t see any injuries on Depp the night of the fight.

Jurors’ verdict in favor of Depp

The jury’s decision to find in Johnny Depp’s favor follows the conclusion of the trial. The actor’s lawyers argued that Heard told the truth during six weeks of testimony, and his comments were protected by the First Amendment. Heard claimed that Depp head-butted her and tore clumps of her hair from her head. Heard’s friends and makeup artist both testified that the actor hit her, and her makeup artist, Raquel Pennington, described the injuries to her hands, arms and feet. The makeup artist testified that she covered up the injuries for Amber Heard’s appearance on James Corden’s late-night show. In the end, the jury’s decision in favor of Johnny Depp is a vindication of the actor’s character.

The court found that Heard acted “aggressively” towards Depp and had actual malice toward her, which would have required Depp to show that Heard did not believe Heard was abused. The jury said that the evidence showed that Heard had actually believed Heard was abused. Jurors also noted that Heard did not appear guilty in the courtroom during the trial, but asked the judge to investigate potential bias against Depp from Heard’s legal team. During the six-week trial, Heard and Depp’s legal teams paraded numerous friends, family members and employees to testify. Despite this, the jury stated that it did not take into account the testimony of the witnesses.

Amber Heard expressed disappointment over the outcome of the trial. She spoke in a sit-down interview after the verdict was announced. She argued that the media representation of her in the case was unfair, and that Depp’s popularity had been due to his role in the film. On the other hand, Johnny Depp appeared to be pleased with the verdict and said that the proceedings had left him “at peace”.

Heard’s Lawyers Assert one Juror Was not Properly Vetted

Heard’s lawyers argue that a jury that convicted Johnny Depp of sexual harassment should be thrown out, citing insufficient evidence. They further argue that Depp should not have been allowed to argue that he was cheated on by Heard’s op-ed, which claimed that he had been the victim of domestic abuse but did not name the person responsible.

The court viewed two videos showing Depp’s alleged actions, including a video of him scrubbing the kitchen and an audio recording where he seemed to admit to cutting his own finger. The video showed Heard pleading with Depp not to cut himself, but the court also saw an audio recording that showed Depp saying he cut himself during the confrontation.

The Heard’s lawyers asserted that a jury member’s birth date was incorrectly reported to the court, and that the juror was therefore not vetted in any way. This claim was dismissed when Depp’s legal team said that it was too late for them to object to the verdict. Regardless, the case is still moving forward despite the denial of the motion.

The case is essentially a rerun of a lawsuit Heard filed against a British tabloid in 2016, in which she accused Depp of being a “wife beater.” A British judge later ruled in Depp’s favor in June, finding that Heard had been telling the truth. The actor’s lawyers claim that the British judge erred in ruling Heard’s defamation case should be dismissed.

Amber Heard’s attorneys filed post-trial motions on Friday, arguing that the jury’s $10 million compensatory and $5 million punitive damages award is excessive. They ask the court to set aside the verdict, throw out the lawsuit, and order a new trial. Amber Heard’s attorneys believe they have the case. This new motion may be a pretext for a retrial.
