As rumors were high that Amber Heard might file another case against Johnny Depp, seems like her ex-lawyer has added more fuel to the rumor. Elaine Bredehoft, who represented the Aquaman actress in the previous proceedings against Johnny Depp has now been fired by the actress. As the former attorney defended her throughout the trial, she also gave various TV interviews on behalf of Amber Heard. Elaine Bredehoft also spoke for her ex-client and revealed there was no way for her ex-client to pay the amount of 10 Million ordered by the court.
Statement by Elaine Bredehoft, the ex-lawyer of Amber Heard
“This is the perfect time to pass the baton. I have pledged to Amber and her appellate team my complete cooperation and assistance as they move forward on a path towards success.”
Why Amber Heard’s legal team feels it is the right time to counter-attack Johnny Depp
As the legal team of Amber Heard prepared for appealing once again against Johnny Depp, the ex-lawyer of the Aquaman actress believed it is the right time for her to move ahead in her career. The legal team of Amber Heard said in a statement that “new evidence” revealed might help them to win the case against Johnny Depp.
“When it comes to protecting the fundamental right of Freedom of Speech, we look at the jury’s decision – to paraphrase a famous quote – not ‘as the beginning of the end, but merely the end of the beginning.’ A different court warrants different representation, particularly as so much new evidence is now coming to light.”
Who will lead the legal team after Elaine Bredehoft has left the team?
Following the exit of Elaine Bredehoft, the Aquaman actress will be represented by Ben Rottenborn as he was in the previous team as well. Additionally, two new attornies, David L. Axelrod and Jay Ward Brown have been on board who represented The New York Times in a defamation lawsuit by former Republican Vice President nominee, Sarah Palin. Many also speculated that Amber Heard might take help of her ex-boyfriend Elon Musk to fight against Johnny Depp.
Since nothing is confirmed about the second trial, Amber Heard will be seen next in Aquaman and The Lost Kingdom which is speculated to release in March 2023.
