In a BBC article, Co-Managing Partner Ryan Baker said Depp faces a steep challenge. “For the jury to side with Johnny Depp, they will have to completely disregard Amber Heard’s testimony, consider her a liar,” he said.
The two movie stars have given testimony deeply at odds. Depp told the jury that Heard bullied and abused him during their marriage and Heard claims Depp physically abused her during violent rages. While Depp’s fan base remains loyal, Baker said Heard’s testimony was compelling. Baker said the critical question is whether Heard can claim to be a victim of some form of domestic violence – whether it be physical, emotional, or verbal. “All the jury needs to do is believe some of what she is saying,” he said.
