So, this is ridiculous… Amber Heard Lost Johnny DeppThe defamation case is in no small part because she lied about donating half of her divorce settlement to the ACLU…and now an ACLU judge has awarded $38,000…and guess who has to pay – not Amber.
Here’s the deal…Johnny’s legal team summoned documents from the ACLU to prove that Amber never provided the money. According to the ACLU, they had to produce 1,900 documents and that took a long time. The organization asked the judge to order Johnny to pay $86,000 for time and expenses associated with producing the document.
Johnny’s lawyers contacted PBS, saying the tab was “expensive and unreasonable.” The judge sided with Johnny and almost cut the bill in half…so Johnny now has to pay $38,000.
and you know, Johnny won the case against Amber, so you would think that she would have to pay the costs incurred to reach a judgment… an outright judgment against her regarding Johnny’s defamation case. But that’s not the law, so Johnny has to pay.
The thing is…it looks like Johnny isn’t going to take it to the carpet and make Amber pay a net judgment of $8.35 million. Therefore, despite his victory, he left the bag with the ACLU.
So, pretty much…everyone has been screwed up.
