Johnny Depp won’t have his day in court (once more). The entertainer has been denied an allure in his prominent defamation case in the UK with The Sun distributer News Group Newspapers.
Depp was hoping to upset a choice in which Judge Andrew Niccol decided that the newspaper was reasonable in considering him an “undershirt”, with the decision attesting that the allegation was “considerably evident” concerning his relationship with ex Amber Heard. That administering has now been maintained by the UK Court of Appeal.
This is a huge blow for Depp.
After the underlying preliminary, he was dropped from Warner Bros’ Fantastic Beasts establishment and supplanted by Mads Mikkelsen, and he is presently tarred with the ‘undershirt’ brush in front of his blockbuster criticism preliminary against Heard in the U.S. one year from now.
Reacting to the present decision, Depp’s legal advisor, Joelle Rich of Schillings Partners, sent a proclamation to Deadline saying she “truly addressed” the UK court’s choice and that the entertainer was anticipating “introducing the total, obvious proof of reality in the U.S. criticism body of evidence against Ms. Heard where she should give total honesty”.
A representative for Heard said they were “satisfied yet in no way, shape or form astonished” by the choice and considered Depp’s group’s case of ‘new and significant proof’ “close to a press methodology”.
“The proof introduced in the UK case was overpowering and certain. To repeat, the first decision was that Mr. Depp submitted aggressive behavior at home against Amber on no less than 12 events and she was left in dread of her life,” they added.
Requests Judges Lord Justice Dingemans and Lord Justice Underhill earlier today delivered a 14-page record clarifying their choice.
“The meeting before Nicol J was full and reasonable, and he gave exhaustive purposes behind his decisions which have not been shown even seem to be vitiated by any blunder of approach or error of law,” they said.
