In an interview with Dr. Savannah Guthrie On Today On Thursday morning, the lawyer said Elaine Bradhoft Announcing that her client plans to “absolutely” appeal against the verdict, the actress shared:
“Absolutely. It has some wonderful foundations. “
He went on to explain how Amber’s legal team was barred from discussing the 2020 UK defamation suit that Johnny lost, explaining:
“We even tried to get a UK verdict to dismiss the case because he had already taken his shot and that was one of the problems. But a number of proven problems. There was a lot of evidence that didn’t come. “
Most importantly, he believes the root cause of the problem was the fact that his client was “monstrous” throughout the trial – Depp’s lawyers and people on social media. The lawyer claims:
“He was the devil here. There were a lot of things that were allowed in this court that shouldn’t have been allowed, and that confused the jury. “
The case quickly turned into a viral sensation, and many were judged by live tuning. He condemned the approval of the camera in the courtroom, calling it a “zoo”. But that’s not the only thing he thinks has confused the judges.

Not only were people watching the trial closely, it was plastered on almost every social media platform, making it difficult for anyone to avoid it – even judges were told not to watch anything in their spare time. And, for the most part, public comments were serious against the actress, Ellen said:
“[The jurors] I used to go home every night. They have families. Families on social media. We had a 10 day break in the middle due to a judicial conference. There’s no way they couldn’t be affected by it, and it was horrible. It was really, really one-sided. … It was like the Roman Colosseum, how they view this whole case. ”
When asked if he was “shocked” that the judges “rejected” Amber’s allegations of domestic violence, Bradhoft shared:
“It simply came to our notice then. Johnny Depp brought a lawsuit in the UK for the same case and it was easier for him to understand the evidence. “
He went on to refer to the case in the United Kingdom where Depp sued The sun To refer to her as “Wife Beater”:
“The sun In fact it had to prove that it was true. And the court found there – and our jury was not allowed to say – that Mr. Depp had committed at least 12 acts of domestic violence, including sexual assault, against Amber. So what did Depp’s team learn from this? Demonize Amber and suppress the evidence. We had a lot of evidence that was suppressed in this case which was in the UK case. In the case of the United Kingdom, when it came down to it, Amber won, Mr Depp lost. “
When Savannah points out the fact that in her concluding argument, Ellen impressed the jury that if they found an example of Depp Amber’s indecent behavior – even if it wasn’t physical – they would have to side with him, their decision would be more. More shocked, Elaine thought:
“The other thing to keep in mind here is that nothing changes. Op-Ed didn’t even mention Johnny Depp. So, what they did here was basically demonize him. And they did. They were able to suppress the medical records, which Was very important because they showed a pattern […] Back in 2012, Amber reported this to her therapist, for example. We had [a] Significant amounts of text, including Mr. Depp’s aides, ‘When I told him he kicked you, he cried. She is very sorry. That didn’t come. “
In the end, the lawyers are in favor of Amber in the judgment, emphasizing that this is a major “disaster”:
“[It sends] A terrible message … it’s a significant shock because that’s exactly what it means. You will not be trusted unless you take out your phone and video your wife or your significant other being effectively beaten. ”
Oh, and Amber owes that huge sum now? Elaine insisted that her client could afford “absolutely not” to pay about 10.4 million in compensation! Well, no.

The number of times Elaine said she was “demon-possessed” makes it clear what Herd’s team is trying to convey here. That’s great! It will be interesting to see if Amber really appeals. No matter which side you are on, however, the outcome of this lawsuit – and perhaps the future appeal – will obviously complicate future efforts to bring the abuse to light. Worried?
