The verdict of the court trial of Johnny Depp v. Amber Heard has been passed last week in the favor of Johnny Depp. This resulted in Depp suing his former wife, Amber Heard for $US 50 million claiming that she defamed him by being untruthful and alleging that he committed domestic abuse on her. She had wrote an article about it, calling herself a “public figure representing domestic abuse” in an opinion piece for The Washington Post.

Lawyer Elaine Bredehoft
The trial was as exhausting as six weeks long with constant statements and arguments. The happenings in the court were also open to the media and the people outside the court. The trial has been one of the most trending and burning current affairs. Heard was represented by Lawyer Elaine Bredehoft. She is a successful and recognized lawyer successful trying cases in the state and federal courts of Virginia, the District of Columbia and Maryland since 1984.
The trial has multiple instances of speeches from lawyers and witnesses from Heard’s side which were found quite illogical. They have been made fun of by people on social media. Other than the fact that a lawyer needs to be rightful being in his profession, one also needs to be very cautious when playing in the public’s eye. Bredehoft was reportedly spotted heading to the washroom of Fairfax County Circuit Courthouse in Virginia, crying, after the arguments were closed to the court.
Late after trial, before the jury went home, #ElaineBredehoft left for the bathroom crying. We all felt terrible for her.

A Twitter user took it to write about the incident. “Late after trial, before the jury went home, #ElaineBredehoft left for the bathroom crying. We all felt terrible for her. After she came out, we tried to make her smile. I hope it helped. We don’t know why she was crying, but we all noted how it must be hard for her to deal with all of this public attention while defending a client she probably doesn’t like.”
Many other users on Twitter have joined a feeling of sympathy for the poor lawyer. But they are also aware that they still believe that the lawyer was ultimately unsuccessful in proving Heard right. They also do not fail to maintain compassion and joy for Johnny Depp’s victory.
All US citizens deserve representation & a fair trial. Elaine Bredehoft was doing that for a Amber as Jose Baez did for Casey Anthony. If she's crying in the restroom, remember this trial was a televised nightmare. It's not a meme, it's her livelihood. Still #JusticeForJohnnyDepp

Aw, I heard Elaine Bredehoft was crying today?! 🥺 I hope you don’t let all of this weigh you down. You did your job. You just had a shitty client that lied and gave you garbage to work with. #WeJustDontLikeYouAmber #JusticeForJohnnyDepp #DeppVHeardTrial #DeppHeardTrial

Elaine Bredehoft crying in the bathroom after the trial yesterday is 💯 relatable. Whether they were tears of relief, guilt or just release in the moment of dropping the ‘professional’ mask, I hope she feels better.#justiceforjohnnydepp#ElaineBredehoft #amberheardisaliar

While many fans believe that justice was delivered after the grueling trial, a lot of people have also pointed out that televising the entire thing wasn’t exactly a great idea. With the internet’s obsession with the case, it’s only natural that all the parties involved had a hard time, including the lawyers.
