The Closing Remarks of Both The Parties

Johnny Depp’s lawyers always stuck with their trial strategy to clarify that Heard was the actual abuser in the relationship whereas Depp was a pacifist.

Camille Vasquez who became an overnight internet sensation after her intense questioning round with Amber stated, “There is an abuser in this courtroom, but it is not Mr. Depp,” “And there is a victim of domestic abuse in this courtroom, but it is not Ms. Heard.”

On the other hand, Ben Rottenborn argued, “If Amber was abused by Mr. Depp even one time, then she wins,” “We’re not just talking about physical abuse. We’re talking about emotional abuse, psychological abuse, financial abuse, sexual abuse.”

When providing the closing remarks, Depp’s attorney played a couple of audio recordings in which it was clearly audible that Heard admitted to hitting Depp. She even went on to say to “tell the world” and “see what a jury and judge thinks” about his accusations of physical abuse.

“Who’s really the one alleging a hoax here?” Vasquez questioned. “Who wants you to believe that everyone else is lying — committing perjury.”

The fight of 2015’s Australia trip has been brought up time and again. Amber accused Depp of physically assaulting her and conducting marital rape with a wine bottle. Whereas Depp claimed that his fingertip was cut after Amber threw a vodka bottle.

Highlighting that case, Vasquez proceeded to claim that Heard didn’t have the time to take pictures of her alleged injuries but photographed Depp’s writing that was done on the walls of the house. In fact, those writings were a result of Depp’s mental breakdown. Besides, no one who has testified regarding this incident agreed to Amber’s claims.

Rottenborn stated in defense of Amber and mentioned that Depp’s finger incident was 

 “irrelevant to your deliberations here.”

He stated, “Amber could’ve chopped it off with an ax, and it has nothing to do with whether Mr. Depp abused her.” 

As a matter of fact, a lot of time was dedicated by Rottenborn to clarify to the jury. Heard kept mentioning throughout the trial that the op-ed was not about Depp and even ACLU general counsel Terence Dougherty came forward to claim that the column was “extensively reworked” to prevent any defamation allegations. 

Rottenborn added, “Just because people might read the article and remember that Ms. Heard used to be married to Johnny Depp, and she accused him of abuse, that doesn’t mean she designed and intended any defamatory implications in writing about herself.”

In fact, Heard even republished the op-ed simply by retweeting it. But her attorneys argue that just tweeting the hyperlink doesn’t mean that the piece is republished. It was done to reach a whole new level of the audience.

The closing remarks continued for a prolonged period to give the jurors an entire brief of the scenario.

The Jury of Amber vs. Johnny case

The trial has been held in Fairfax County, Virginia and there are eleven jurors to determine the case.

It consisted of six men, three women, and two alternates. The defamation trial began after Johnny Depp sued Amber Heard for defaming him in her 2018 op-ed published in The Washington Post. In that article, she claimed herself as “a public figure representing domestic abuse”. She even penned down, “I had the rare vantage point of seeing, in real-time, how institutions protect men accused of abuse.”

Depp claimed that Amber was attempting to ruin his reputation and sued her for $50 million in 2019. Later in 2021, Amber sued him for $100 million and the case has been continuing since then.

The world is waiting for the final words and hopefully, they will be out soon!
