The legal battle between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard continues and the actress suffered a minor loss to her ex-husband. She wanted Deb to drop the lawsuit he had filed against her because she had lost a lawsuit in the UK, but that did not happen.
In the UK, Johnny Depp was prosecuted for calling the newspaper a “wife beater”. He filed a defamation suit against the vehicle, but lost, and the judge found evidence that he actually assaulted Amber Heard.

In addition, the actress sought to drop Depp’s $ 265 million defamation suit against her, but Benny Asgart, a judge in Fairfax County, USA, refused.
“The court was not compelled by the defendant’s argument that the plaintiff has a full and reasonable opportunity to sue in the UK. This is because allegations of defamation were made after the UK operation began, ”the judge said.
“Defendant argues that he had privacy with The Sun because they both had the same interest in the case. However, in order for privacy to exist, the defendant ‘s interest in the case must be identical to The Sun’s interest, so representing his interest in The Sun is a representation of the defendant’s legal rights,” the statement continued.
With that, the legal battle between Amber Heard and Johnny Depp continues. The Virginia trial is not expected to take place until April 2022.
