Johnny Depp's lawyers told about the actor's trial with Amber Heard: "Miss Heard did not take responsibility for anything"

Johnny Depp's lawyers Camilla Vasquez and Benjamin Chu, who defended the actor at the trial against Amber Heard, told about the trial. The trial ended last week in Depp's favor: Amber Heard was found guilty of defamation and ordered to pay $ 15 million.

A huge weight has been lifted from his shoulders, and I feel that after six years he has finally returned to his life," Chu said on the Good morning America morning show.

Camila Vasquez, who was even suspected of having an affair with Depp during the trial, said that "the key to victory was that attention was focused on facts and evidence, as well as on Johnny's ability to tell the truth for the first time." Camilla Vasquez also commented on the words of Amber Heard's team that the outcome of the trial between Heard and Depp will affect the fate of the MeToo movement, in which women talk about the violence experienced.

We call on every victim of violence to speak out. But domestic violence has no gender.

In the Today program, Vasquez also spoke about the accusations of lawyer Amber Heard that the evidence that was considered in court in the UK was not presented in court.

It was a different process. The irrefutable evidence that was presented at the trial in Virginia is far superior to what was presented in the UK, and we believe that the jury understood them correctly. The information that Depp's team "demonized Amber," as previously stated by her lawyer, Benjamin Chu called "categorically false."

He noted that Depp was more outspoken at the trial, while Heard did not take responsibility for anything. Johnny admitted his problems, he was very outspoken about his alcohol and drug problems, he was outspoken about some of the unfortunate messages he wrote, and I think it was a stark contrast to Ms. Heard, who didn't seem outspoken. She had the answer to all the questions, and she did not take responsibility for anything. I think it made a difference.

Chu also commented on the statement that the verdict was influenced by the resonance on social networks.

Social media didn't play any role. This decision was made by the jury based on the evidence presented by both sides, and it was overwhelmingly in favor of Mr. Depp.

Johnny Depp's lawyers suggested that the actor could even refuse $ 8 million in compensation that Heard should pay him by court order, since his goal was to restore his reputation. This case for Mr. Depp was not about money. It was about restoring his reputation, and he did it. We have to be careful what we say, but it was about Mr. Depp's reputation, that was what was important to him," Vasquez and Chu stressed.

Earlier, Amber's lawyer said that the actress has no money to pay compensation and she can declare bankruptcy.

The trial between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard became very loud and caused a great public outcry. The scandal was actively discussed in social networks, where most users sided with Depp. There were, however, those who supported Amber Heard.

After the successful completion of the trial, Johnny Depp posted a video on TikTok in which he thanked his fans. There are also rumors online that the actor may return to the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise. Amber Heard, on the contrary, lost the role: all the scenes with her heroine Merah will be cut from the movie "Aquaman-2".

Johnny Depp's lawyer Camilla Vasquez received a promotion after the successful completion of the Johnny Depp case: according to Western media, she became a partner in the firm where she worked.
