Amber Heard has added a prominent attorney who led the Time’s Up legal defense fund to help in Heard’s defense against ex-husband Johnny Depp’s $50 million defamation lawsuit.
Depp argues that Heard hurt his reputation when she wrote about domestic abuse in her op-ed for the Washington Post, even though she did not specifically name him in the piece.
Heard said her intention was to highlight the potential implications brought upon by the #MeToo movement. She asked Congress to reauthorize the Violence Against Women Act, and criticized proposed changes to Title IX rules about the treatment of sexual harassment and assault in schools.
Depp’s team will now get a chance to fight the dismissal motion, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
