Judge Delays Hearing

9 Aug

By ANTHONY McCARTNEY, AP Entertainment Writer


LOS ANGELES (AP) β€” A hearing on Amber Heard’s allegations that Johnny Depp physically abused her is expected to last up to a week, prompting a judge Tuesday to delay its start.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Carl H. Moor ruled Tuesday that the hearing will begin Aug. 17, two days later than planned. Moor ordered the delay after concluding the hearing may take up to five days.

The domestic violence allegations are one aspect of the actors’ contentious divorce. Heard filed to divorce Depp on May 23, and a few days later obtained a temporary restraining order after accusing the actor of repeatedly hitting her during a fight in their Los Angeles apartment.

Depp’s lawyer has denied the allegations, and she said Tuesday he wants the hearing concluded as quickly as possible. “This is weighing heavily on my client,” attorney Laura Wasser said.

If Heard prevails, the restraining order against Depp could be extended for up to five years.

Heard wants to call Depp as a hostile witness during the proceedings.

Moor ordered Heard to sit for a deposition on Friday and Depp to give sworn testimony in advance of the hearing on Saturday.


Depp will not be allow to attend Heard’s deposition, Moor ruled.

Heard accused Depp of repeatedly hitting her and throwing a cellphone during a fight in their Los Angeles apartment in May. A judge ordered Depp to not contact Heard and stay 100 yards away from her.


Los Angeles police responded to their apartment, but the person who made the call declined to file charges and officers determined no crime occurred.


Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Carl Moor also said today the trial will begin Aug. 17 instead of Monday as was originally scheduled. He said a new judge with the ability to hear the case exclusively without dealing with a daily law-and-motion calendar will be assigned.

Moor said the selection of the new judge is still pending. – by

    So here we go again. This is getting way beyond ridiculous.

    If it doesn’t happen this time the judge should say enough of her antics and throw it out.

    I hope these judges are aware of her performance on Saturday…..

      Yeah I don’t know why there was no mention of that performance. My first instinct was to say Carl Moor is a wimp for not throwing out the fucking case and just declaring that Amber blew it and is a liar. Now I wonder if he’s curious to know if Ambitch is hiding something behind her abuse allegations. I found myself wondering today WHY is Ambitch still fighting and WHY is her publicist telling such a conflicting story than Wasser’s? I don’t see Wasser as a liar at all and SHE, not a publicist, filed those documents from last Saturday. BUT,, this latest with the delayed hearing–could mean Moor wants to know what REALLY happened to cause this whole thing, the abuse allegations and Ambitch refusing to depose–everything leading up to now.

      Soooo, what did she do? Beat Johnny up, threaten to kill him, hurt his kids, do something stupid while “caring” for his mother? Hmmm…

    There’s more going on than meets the eye. I’ve said it all along, Ambitch is covering something up and that is why she keeps fighting so hard which she can only do behind publicists on social media. But her refusal to drop the charges shows me Johnny either has something on her or someone else does. Like I said to Judy, Carl Moor probably wants to dig deeper to find out what’s REALLY going on.

      I think I get what your saying katedruana. Judge Moor (who it seems won’t be hearing this case) is curious to find out what exactly caused Ambitch to file DV against JD. With next to zero evidence presented in the original filing, he’s trying to extract (for lack of a better term) the true reason for Ambitch’s utter and deep hate and vindictiveness towards Johnny. Yes there must be a reason and it’s more on the fact that she found out that without a prenup she ain’t gonna get shit!!! And she’s utterly pissed that she was taken for a ride!! Boo the fuck Hoo

      • katedruana August 10, 2016 at 9:36 am #

        Scumnt is psychotic and a twisted narcissistic sociopath. She could be capable of anything. Worse than DV and DEFINITELY worse than cheating. Whatever it is, she’s terrified of it being found out. Hehe–sorry bitch your time is up! πŸ˜€

    • Andy August 9, 2016 at 9:13 pm #

      His schedule is not permitting so he had to give it to another judge

    • Pennywise August 10, 2016 at 5:27 am #

      Someone who has info on her juvie record?

      • LZ August 10, 2016 at 8:05 am #

        Hopefully, yes. Not sure though if Berk had already examined her past based on public documents.

        • LZ August 10, 2016 at 8:06 am #

          Aside from her 2009 DV arrest, I mean.

  4. Brenda M Clemons August 9, 2016 at 7:58 pm #

    I want to know why she didn’t end up in a mental hospital after her performance Saturday? Anyone not a celebrity would probably be put into a straight jacket if they screamed, cried and refused to sit for a deposition.

  5. johana August 9, 2016 at 8:15 pm #

    She just cried and screamed, Scumnt is smart, she did not hit anyone…

    • Pennywise August 9, 2016 at 8:24 pm #

      So she’s competent (I mean legally)

  6. mud6352@gmail.com August 9, 2016 at 9:10 pm #

    Sick of her getting away with shit hopefully she pulls it again gets contempt of court and ordered to get a physco evaluation

    • LZ August 9, 2016 at 10:32 pm #

      Or be confined to a mental institution for a while. However, sociopathy has no cure.

  7. Nobody August 9, 2016 at 9:34 pm #

    Judge Moor seems rather lenient. Not only Wasser but also Wasser’s dad (heads the law firm) must wield power and may have gotten them to get a new judge. Schedule being an easy excuse.

  8. LZ August 9, 2016 at 10:29 pm #

    I hope the new judge will impose: a fine on Scumnt for her tantrums and tardiness last Saturday, a permanent mutual restraining order, a perpetual gag/non-disclosure order, and dismissal of the case for lack of merit.

    • katedruana August 10, 2016 at 9:28 am #

      I don’t like the idea of a mutual restraining order. I thought at first it would be good but then I read up on them. Mutual restraining orders are kind of a subtle way of saying the accused could have been guilty. That said, having a mutual restraining order could hurt Johnny as much as if Ambitch won a permanent restraining order against HIM. My hope is for whatever Turd is hiding to induce a permanent restraining order against her. That way Johnny can be truly free from any shadow of these hideous accusations. πŸ™‚

      • LZ August 10, 2016 at 10:24 am #

        A permanent restraining order is better then, and delete RO against him. He doesn’t deserve it. I don’t think he even wants to see an iota of her shadow. πŸ™‚

    • katedruana August 10, 2016 at 9:40 am #

      But yes, everything else you mentioned, LZ, that is a MUST! This new judge needs to be more bottom line. Moor denied Wasser her request to force Turd back from London(and she didn’t even go there) for her first depo when Wasser was only ONE day later than the limit. Given the importance, Moor could have granted Wasser the request but was quoted as saying it’s too extreme. This is relevant to this new post given that Moor allowed the second depo and the hearing on this damn thing, although at least now I don’t think he’s just babying Amber like her lawyers are.

      • LZ August 10, 2016 at 10:27 am #

        Let’s hope, Druana. πŸ™‚

  9. aquagirl10009 August 9, 2016 at 11:34 pm #

    Me too. She should also have to pay Johnny’s lawyer’s fee for Saturday, since she was the one who said she could only do the depo on a weekend. They accommodated her schedule and she wasted their time.

    I also cannot believe that she was not hospitalized. If you or I did that, we’d be in a straight jacket in no time.

    • Andy August 9, 2016 at 11:36 pm #

      or at least in an ER with some booty juice ( valium shot)

      • aquagirl10009 August 10, 2016 at 12:40 am #

        I think I need some booty juice after reading all this shit.

    • LZ August 9, 2016 at 11:43 pm #

      Precisely. Wasser, I assume, thought that she’s simply acting it out to prevent giving a false sworn testimony. Pretending/Acting versus showing signs of mental instability are two distinct matters, of course. However, in her case, it’s a sure sign that she’s got a serious psychological issue. Aside from that, if they had her hospitalized, it would further exacerbate the situation. And Depp wants this done and over with as soon as possible.

      • aquagirl10009 August 10, 2016 at 12:41 am #

        Wasser did say she was acting manic.

        • LZ August 10, 2016 at 8:23 am #

          Hmmm…didn’t know that. In that case, who should’ve called a mental health facility to send people to get her?

          It’d be good if Andy’s able to get a copy of what Wasser submitted. (I don’t want to read Spector’s). The ones on TMZ and others are all summarized info. It’s “amazing” (sarcasm) that her lawyers weren’t able to explain to her the repercussions of her behavior. How they treat her is a far cry from how Wasser and Berk treat Johnny – i.e. in a very professional manner and not “baby”-ing him.

        • LZ August 10, 2016 at 12:34 pm #

          Yes this is manic – ‘Amber hysterically crying and pacing in her separate conference room, or screaming and yelling at times and laughing at others.’

          Why would she even be “laughing”? She’s laughing at her lawyers?

  10. LilyS August 10, 2016 at 12:07 am #

    The US news article no longer exists for some reason….hmmmmmmm

    • Ps August 10, 2016 at 3:54 am #

      He talked about what?

    • Keen Observer August 10, 2016 at 1:20 pm #

      it still exists. Just delete the ‘ed’ at the back of ‘hearing’

  11. swansta August 10, 2016 at 6:48 am #

    On that Russian site is written that Amber has a new depo on August 12th – is that true? Johnny’s is on August 13th.

    • LZ August 10, 2016 at 8:24 am #

      From what I read, yes.

      • swansta August 10, 2016 at 10:07 am #

        What’s the point? If she didn’t want to talk on Saturday, she won’t on Friday either.

        • LZ August 10, 2016 at 12:38 pm #

          It’s a legal SOP, I suppose. She’s obligated to give her depo first before he does. If she stalls her forthcoming depo again, the new judge should impose a heavy penalty on her for defying court order with her immature and crazy behavior or dismiss her DV case.

    • katedruana August 10, 2016 at 9:33 am #

      If I weren’t suspicious that there’s something Scumnt is hiding, I’d be furious with the judicial system and throwing in the towel on this whole thing and hoping the end result sets Johnny free of ALL of this shit…RO and all.

      But I always had a feeling she was capable of more than DV. Look at her arrest record…:P πŸ˜‰

  12. Tammy Adams August 10, 2016 at 5:56 pm #

    I think Amber is going to cave in……She does NOT want to be deposed…she keeps avoiding that like the plague….she is going to sue him in civil court…either way she will have to be deposed or my other thought is that she will have an epic meltdown in court and she will be committed to an institution because she does NOT want to admit that she had planned this all along…..
