Depp’s lawyer’s request to depose

Depp’s lawyer’s request to depose Amber Heard denied

Los Angeles, June 11 (IANS) Actor Johnny Depp’s lawyer’s request to depose Amber Heard and neighbour Raquel Pennington was denied here.

Depp’s lawyer, Laura Wasser, filed a request to compel Heard’s deposition immediately. But according to sources and court documents, the judge denied the motion, reasoning that the original notice of deposition failed to give Heard the required 10-day notice, reports people.com.

On June 17, a court hearing is scheduled to determine whether to extend a temporary restraining order issued against Depp.

“Respondent’s request to take deposition of Heard is denied, as the request was untimely noticed,” the judge stated.

Wasser also asked for the actress to provide all of her communications (writing, documents, texts) from December 15 to present, including with her friend iO Tillet Wright.

“Amber has not been given sufficient time to locate the requested documents. The request requires Amber to review over six months of personal communications with potentially every person she has spoken with, to search for any passing reference to the incidents in question. This is unduly burdensome,” Heard’s attorney Samantha Spector stated.

The 52-year-old actor is locked in an ongoing legal drama with estranged wife Amber Heard.

Depp has been ordered to stay away from Heard after she claimed he hit her in the face with a cellphone, pulled her hair, struck her and screamed at her during a fight.

Last month, Heard was granted a temporary restraining order against Depp until June 17.
