Johnny Depp’s Case Against Amber Heard Suffers Blow After Key Witness Is Dismissed

The Johnny Depp and Amber Heard drama continues. Following the 2020 verdict that saw Depp’s lawsuit against The Sun for referring to him as a “wife beater” being dismissed, the Pirates of the Caribbean actor is back in court, this time because he’s suing Heard for defamation (which prompted him to countersue for $100 million). Unfortunately for Depp, his case has suffered a major blow due to the dismissal of a key witness.

As reported by Insider, the third day of testimony in the Johnny Depp/Amber Heard trial saw Georgina Deuters, the wife of Stephen Deuters (one of Depp’s employees and collaborators) being called to the stand by Depp’s legal team. However, while Deuters was recalling past events, she was dismissed from the stand, and Heard’s lawyers convened with Judge Penney Azcarate. After the jurors were dismissed from the room, Azcarate, who’s presiding over this trial taking place in Fairfax County, Virginia, asked Deuters if she’d watched any of the trial prior to her testimony. Deuters answered she’d seen some “clips of it online,” and from there, Azcarate said she could leave the courthouse and instructed Deuters’ testimony to be stricken from the record.
