Could Amber Heard Just File For Bankruptcy To Avoid Paying Johnny Depp?

There are messy celebrity divorces, and then there’s the infamous split between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard. The two actors have been battling in court for years, and that’s only continued following the verdict of their defamation suits. The Aquaman star was found guilty on three counts, and ordered to pay her ex over $10 million after the dust settled. But could Heard just file for bankruptcy to avoid paying Depp this sum?

$10 million is a truly insurmountable sum of money for most people, including celebrities like Amber Heard. Her lawyer has gone on record saying she won’t be able to pay those millions of dollars, with the legal team continuing to attempt some appeals. But could bankruptcy help Amber Heard? According to a report by heard/amber-heard-would-gain-no-real-benefit-by-using-bankruptcy-to-avoid-paying-johnny-depp-millions-but-theres-a-catch-law-prof/” data-url=”https://lawandcrime.com/live-trials/live-trials-current/depp-v-heard/amber-heard-would-gain-no-real-benefit-by-using-bankruptcy-to-avoid-paying-johnny-depp-millions-but-theres-a-catch-law-prof/”Law and Crime, the short answer is no.

Unfortunately for Amber Heard, declaring bankruptcy won’t help her avoid paying Johnny Depp over the defamation case. Instead, going this route might help Heard slow down the payments. And with Heard’s legal team continuing to make appeals over the verdict, this might be able to buy her time as well. Clearly the ongoing legal battle isn’t going to

Law professor targets Johnny Depp’s attorney Camille Vasquez in ‘offensive’ tweets

Internet is bashing a well known law professor for writing “offensive and disparaging” tweets about Johnny Depp’s lawyer, Camille Vasquez.

According to New York Post report, a Stanford law professor Michele Dauber took to Twitter last Thursday and shared a screenshot of Vasquez and accusing the superstar attorney of “sucking up to male power.”

He further continued, “Of all the women who suck up to male power, women lawyers are the absolute worst of the bunch.”

“Desperate to prove they are ‘real lawyers’ and understanding that being a woman undermines their identity as lawyers, they throw women under the bus as hard and fast as they can,” Dauber wrote.

The law professor was bashed for her harsh words about Vasquez. Reacting to his tweets, one follower wrote, “If your son was falsely accused of domestic violence, I bet you would love for that woman to help vindicate him.”

Dauber subsequently snapped back and replied, “If my son was accused of DV [domestic violence] he would have a lot more to worry about than some Pick Me Girl lawyer. But that isn’t going to happen because

A day after a jury found that Amber Heard defamed her ex-husband Johnny Depp and awarded him $15 million in damages, Heard’s lawyer Elaine Bredehoft told multiple morning shows that the actress intends to appeal the verdict.

“Oh, absolutely,” Bredehoft responded on Thursday heard-s-attorney-speaks-out-verdict-is-a-significant-setback-141295685920″when NBC’s “Today” anchor Savannah Guthrie asked if Heard wanted to appeal. “And she has some excellent grounds for it.”

On Wednesday, a seven-person jury in Fairfax County ruled largely in Depp’s favor, agreeing with the actor that Heard harmed his reputation when she wrote a 2018 Washington Post op-ed (which did not name Depp) that said she became a public figure representing domestic abuse, two years after she had filed for divorce and a restraining order. In addition, the jury found that Depp, through his lawyer Adam Waldman, defamed Heard in one of three statements that called her accusations a hoax and awarded her $2 million.

Bredehoft said that Heard was “heartbroken” after the verdict. “One of the first things she said is, ‘I am so sorry to all those women out there,’ ” the lawyer said, adding that the verdict sends “a horrible message.”

“It’s a setback, a
