Out-Of-Nowhere Depp Lawyer Camille Vasquez Delivers Implacable Closing Argument

Posted by Peter Quennell


Context

Camille Vasquez is one of eight lawyers on Johnny Depp’s team.

For most of the trial she was held back and to many remained invisible. But when she was finally unleashed it sure was worth the wait.

Loaded for bear in witness examinations, including of Heard, and from her first few words really searing in her final argument, she ended powerfully with the names of all who testified why the Washington Post article and a post-separation restraining order against Depp were both hoaxes.

Looks like this closing argument might be one for the law schools. And for TV interviews: she would not be interviewed during the trial.

Total viewership today already exceeds 25 million. Surely one for the Guinness Book of Records?

(Re the above: Heard always responding to the jury rather than to the lawyer doing the questioning has caused much audience irritation.  This shot across her bows resulted in many millions of views on Tik-Tok. As quoted here, she sure was sounding very Knox-like - having played various games to attract the paparazzi in the first place! )

Here is a rough transcript of Camille Vasquez, created by YouTube’s robot transcriber, to be edited or replaced if a more accurate transcript pops up online.

0:10
there you go I think so okay nope you had it for a second [re wireless microphone]
0:21
good morning. thank you let’s try that again. good morning.
0:29
on may 27th 2016 Ms Heard walked into a courthouse in los
0:34
angeles california to get a no notice ex-party restraining order against Mr Depp
0:40
and in doing so ruined his life by falsely telling the world that she
0:46
was the survivor of domestic abuse at the hands of Mr Depp today
0:52
on may 27 2022 exactly six years later
0:59
we ask you to give Mr Depp his life back by telling the world that Mr Depp is not
1:04
the abuser Ms Heard said he is and hold Ms Heard accountable for her
1:10
life ladies and gentlemen the jury as you probably know by now my name is camille
1:16
vasquez on behalf of Mr Depp and all my colleagues at brown rednick
1:21
i want to thank you deeply for your time and your service over
1:26
these last seven weeks we understand that it probably has not been convenient for you to be here every
1:33
day and we are so grateful for your time and careful consideration
1:39
of the evidence as you deliberate after weeks of sitting in this courtroom
1:45
listening to testimony and looking at evidence now it’s time for you the jury
1:50
to come to a decision you have been entrusted with a serious task
1:56
what is at stake in this trial is a man’s good name even more than that
2:02
what is at stake at this trial is a man’s life the life that he lost when he was
2:08
accused of a heinous crime and the life he could live when he was finally vindicated
2:14
exactly six years ago today on may 27 2016 Ms Heard walked into court
2:21
and filed a false report of domestic abuse against her husband of 15 months
2:26
johnny Depp the scene was a setup she tipped off the paparazzi
2:32
so they would be waiting they knew exactly where she would pause which side of her face to photograph
2:39
and the photos captured what she wanted them to see the image of a battered woman
2:46
what the paparazzi did not know is that the dark mark on her face mysteriously appeared six days after last seen mr
2:54
Depp it was a lie she knew it Mr Depp knew it
2:59
and the multiple witnesses you heard from who saw her that week of may 21 2016 also knew it
3:07
but the world only saw what she wanted them to see
3:32
two years later when promoting the biggest role of her career until this trial
3:38
miss Heard presented herself to the world as a public figure representing domestic abuse
3:43
the headline of the op-ed featured the term sexual violence even though she had never before accused
3:50
her ex-husband of such a heinous crime Ms Heard and her lawyers love to remind
3:55
you of how the op-ed did not mention Mr Depp by name but Ms Heard made sure that there
4:01
would be no mistake about who she was referring to she inserted two years ago
4:06
so the world would remember the photo of a battered woman the mark on her face
4:12
standing outside the courthouse and they would once again see Mr Depp as the villain this time in full swing of the metoo
4:19
movement but what was happening behind closed doors was quite different from what
4:24
Ms Heard presented to the world the exact opposite in fact there is a there is an abuser in this
4:30
courtroom but it is not Mr Depp and there is a victim of domestic abuse
4:35
in this courtroom but it is not Ms Heard the evidence presented at this trial has
4:41
shown that Ms Heard is in fact the abuser and Mr Depp the abused
4:46
as you heard from Mr Depp and multiple other witnesses that testified under oath
4:52
at this trial Mr Depp experienced persistent verbal physical and emotional abuse
4:59
by Ms Heard during their relationship and when their relationship was over Ms hurt inflicted the greatest and
5:06
cruelest injury of all she publicly and falsely named Mr Depp as the abuser
5:13
miss Heard never thought she would be held accountable never thought that she would have to
5:18
face her abuser
5:24
she never thought she would never she would have her supposed mountain of evidence vetted she never thought that Mr Depp would
5:30
tell you the jury and the world that he was the real victim of domestic abuse
5:36
she said it in her own words you can please tell people that it was a
5:42
fair fight and see what the see what the jury judge think tell the world johnny
5:47
tell them johnny Depp I joined that man i’m i’m [Music]
6:00
at the start of this case Mr chu and I stood before you to give you our opening statements on behalf of
6:06
mr Depp during that statement we made promises to you about what the evidence would
6:11
ultimately show at the end of this trial we’ve kept those promises
6:16
one of those promises we made was that you would come to understand who Ms Heard is that she is a deeply troubled person
6:23
violently afraid of abandonment desperate for attention and approval and in her relationship with Mr Depp she
6:30
was violent she was abusive and she was cruel you heard from dr shannon curvy who
6:36
explained that Ms Heard suffers from borderline personality disorder and histrionic personality disorder
6:43
these are disorders that are characterized by anger sometimes uncontrollable and explosive anger
6:49
and a powerful sometimes desperate need for attention acceptance and approval
6:55
fear of abandonment is the deepest fear a person with these disorders will suffer from dramatically fluctuating
7:02
moods and can sometimes be violent and aggressive they can also be charming and likeable
7:09
but they can be incredibly manipulative and wild an emotional rollercoaster with wild
7:14
swings from idolizing their partner to devaluing him
7:20
in fact you saw that when she completed testing with her own forensic psychology expert dr don hughes
7:27
miss Heard self-reported that she felt like she had three or four different personalities and that sometimes her
7:34
temper would explode and she’d completely lose control
7:39
you heard from multiple witnesses that Ms her can be very pleasant even charming but you also Heard from
7:45
multiple witnesses and in audio recordings of Ms Heard that she can be incredibly aggressive
7:51
violent and cruel you heard that even from her former assistant kate james Ms james
7:58
testified that mattered would scream yell and send her barrages of text messages
8:04
in fact Mr testified that Ms miss james testified that Ms Heard literally spat in her face
8:12
you heard from Ms Heard’s former best friend rocky pennington that Ms Heard once hit her when miss
8:17
pennington did not do her best to meet Ms Heard’s needs you also Heard from beverly leonard
8:24
that she once witnessed Ms Heard assault her then partner in seattle airport in 2009
8:31
and you heard from Mr Depp that Ms Heard used her sister whitney as a punching bag
8:37
literally and figuratively you also Heard overwhelming evidence
8:42
from Mr Depp and the people that were around him and Ms Heard during their relationship that Mr Depp suffered
8:48
persistent verbal and physical abuse at the hands of Ms Heard you’ve ex Heard evidence from dr curry
8:55
and the fact witnesses at this trial that Ms hurd’s deepest fear is one of abandonment
9:01
being left by Mr Depp Mr Depp ’s greatest crime in her mind
9:06
the fault she confronts him with time and time again is that he splits
9:11
he leaves the fight especially when Ms herd gets physical and she couldn’t stand it when he did
9:19
you heard from Ms her yourselves in audio recordings how upsetting it was to her when Mr Depp would split
9:28
anytime anything goes wrong I feel like it’s your first thing
9:34
and it’s unnecessary it’s not always uh you’re splitting because there’s blows
9:39
or because there’s yelling or anything you split many most times when i’m still speaking
9:45
in this volume and nothing has been thrown or hit or anything
9:52
you saw the barrage of text messages she would send when he would leave calling him a monster for doing so
9:59
you heard from witnesses like travis mcgivern tara roberts and debbie lloyd that Ms Heard would clawed Mr Depp
10:06
block the elevator throw a punch when Mr dutt tried to separate himself from the fight
10:12
and you heard from Mr Depp and mister’s couple therapist dr anderson that Ms Heard reported that when Mr Depp
10:18
would leave to de-escalate a fight she would strike him to keep him there
10:24
because she would rather be in a fight than have him leave
10:29
you heard from Mr Depp about how often Ms Heard would berate him insult him and physically attack him including one
10:36
of the most serious occasions when mister threw a vodka bottle at Mr deb severely injuring his finger and then
10:43
put a cigarette out on his face you heard from Mr Depp that this whole
10:48
incident in australia started because Ms Heard was enraged that Mr Depp wanted a post-nuptial agreement and she
10:56
wasn’t in his will just a month after getting married
11:02
when her husband was seriously injured and bleeding from a partially amputated finger what did Ms her do
11:08
she pursued him she kept coming after him because that’s what she does
11:13
she wouldn’t stop it’s not to get you mad it’s not it’s
11:19
just to get out of a bad situation before it gets worse
11:26
in australia when we had the big fight where I lost the tip of my finger
11:31
at least five bathrooms and two bedrooms I went
11:38
to two to to avoid talking to me
11:45
to escape the fight you don’t escape the fight you escape the solution you escape
11:50
the solution you escape figuring it out we cannot work it out if you run away to
11:56
the bathroom every time you heard Mr Depp testify he went
12:02
through something like a nervous breakdown that day and he wrote a lot of things on mirrors in other places
12:09
again what did Ms Heard do as her husband was bleeding from serious injury she wrote snarky messages right back to
12:16
him she denied it under oath to you but the evidence you saw speaks for itself
12:27
you heard from Mr Depp security sean bett who was aware of constant arguing and bickering
12:32
he witnessed Ms Heard calling Mr Depp names fat ass fuck you johnny
12:39
mr bet testified that he saw undocumented injuries on Mr Depp a swollen eyelid in march of 2015 cuts
12:46
on his nose scratch marks on his chin in december of 2015.
12:54
and you heard from travis mcgivern who testified that Ms Heard called Mr Depp names like washed up
13:01
fucking cunt and worst of all a fucking deadbeat dad
13:07
miss Heard would take the low blows and hit him where it hurts his children
13:13
mr mcgivern told you that on march 23rd 2015 Ms Heard through things that mr
13:18
deb spatted him and ultimately punched him in the face leaving him with a shiner
13:25
you heard testimony from malcolm connolly another security member who testified he saw Ms Heard throw things
13:31
at Mr Depp a cigarette lighter on a plane a soda can from upstairs at the eastern
13:37
columbia building he never saw mark’s son Ms Heard but he saw marks on Mr Depp
13:43
scratches bruises on his left eye scratches on his left ear
13:48
and he took pictures documenting injuries like this one
13:59
you also Heard from tara roberts a manager at Mr duff’s island who witnessed Ms Heard telling Mr Depp
14:05
that he was washed up and would die fat and lonely you also Heard from Ms roberts that
14:11
she witnessed Ms Heard clawing and grabbing at Mr Depp grabbing his hair
14:16
trying to pull him back to her and Mr Depp had a visible injury to his nose on that occasion
14:22
most importantly you heard from Ms Heard yourselves on multiple audio recordings admitting
14:29
to being physically violent with Mr Depp you heard Ms hurt admit to hitting mr
14:34
Depp and then you fucking clock
14:40
I remember hating you as a response to the door thing
14:50
and i’m really sorry about hitting you with the door open or hitting your head I did not mean to nor you didn’t mean to
14:57
hit me in the head with the door but you meant to I didn’t punch me in the jaw I meant to hit you and I did not do
15:05
this thing with the door I do remember I did mean to hit you so that you didn’t mean
15:11
the door no god no I didn’t and punching me I didn’t okay i’m sorry I hate you i
15:17
didn’t mean to hit you but it was interest in response I just reacted in response to
15:22
my foot I just reacted you heard her admitted again and claimed
15:28
mr Depp was a baby for complaining about the abuse and I watched you lie and then I didn’t
15:34
punch you by the way you i’m sorry that I didn’t uh hit you across the face in a proper slap
15:41

16:24

16:31
the you know what you are admirable
16:36
take a minute to really think about what you just Heard there quote i’m sorry that I didn’t hit you
16:42
across the face in a proper slap but I was hitting you I was not punching you
16:48
babe you’re not punched imagine that was Mr Depp saying that two Ms Heard on that recording
16:57
let’s play one more [Laughter]
17:24
[Laughter] oh
17:33
[Music] what else what else other things you
17:39
want to add fucking people oh no I want to know
17:56
come on go be a real married man you deal with your shit the way that a man does go run to the next house
18:02
every man does go run away
18:07
this is the real Ms Heard the one in the audio recordings not the one you saw in this courtroom
18:16
what you didn’t hear on a single recording you heard in this case and there were many played by both
18:21
parties is Mr Depp ever admitting to hitting punching or kicking Ms Heard
18:28
you didn’t hear it it doesn’t exist it didn’t happen
18:34
and despite the fact that Mr Depp and Ms Heard are Heard discussing many of the alleged incidents you’ve Heard about
18:40
at this trial like australia and the bahamas you never Heard Ms Heard accuse mr
18:45
Depp of sexual assault unlike Mr Depp who you heard admit to
18:51
and own up to his past mistakes and his struggles particularly with drugs and alcohol
18:57
Ms Heard will not admit that she has never done that she has ever done anything wrong
19:02
but she cannot deny what you heard on those recordings as much as Ms Heard and her lawyers have tried to make this case about mr
19:09
Depp’s language it is Ms Heard that repeatedly admits to violence
19:16
by april and may of 2016 Mr Depp had reached his limit his mother
19:22
was dying his finances were a mess and when he showed up late to Ms her’s
19:28
30th birthday party because a meeting with his new business manager edward white
19:33
had gone late Ms Heard of course was not understanding she was furious
19:39
you heard from Mr Depp both in this courtroom and on audio recordings that Ms Heard punched him that evening
19:46
he left with travis mcgivern and the next morning he learned that someone had left feces
19:51
on his bed Ms her denies responsibility but she
19:56
admitted to the prank to starling jenkins you heard him testify to that effect
20:02
for almost a month after that they didn’t see each other and you heard from Mr Depp that when his mother died
20:09
on may 20th 2016 he resolved to leave Ms Heard he was done
20:16
and when Ms Heard learned that Mr Depp was done that she was really losing him
20:22
she went on the attack she filed for divorce before Mr Depp could
20:27
then as you heard from Mr duff’s divorce lawyer laura wasser Ms Heard sent a letter demanding
20:33
financial support and when her demands weren’t met Ms Heard struck a blow against Mr Depp
20:39
that was more damaging than any physical blow she had ever landed when she walked into court
20:46
six years ago today on may 27 2016 to get a domestic violence restraining
20:52
order against Mr Depp she did so in front of paparazzi with a mark on her face
20:57
the evidence presented at this trial demonstrates that Ms her didn’t just want a divorce she wanted to ruin him
21:05
miss Heard denied alerting tmz to the tro filing in this courtroom but you heard testimony from morgan
21:11
tremaine that tmz knew to go to the courthouse knew what side of her face the alleged
21:17
bruise was on and that Ms herb would pause she would pause
21:22
for paparazzi who got the photos that ended up splashed across newspapers and magazines
21:30
mr testified that she did not personally give photographs of her apparent injuries to people magazine
21:36
but somehow these pictures that she took and maintained on her devices ended up on
21:41
the cover of people magazine one month later
21:55
in the end she walked away with seven million dollars without any tax liabilities which she said she was
22:01
donating to two charities the aclu and the children’s hospital of Los Angeles
22:07
the aclu they got less than a million dollars from her and the children’s hospital
22:14
they got two hundred and fifty thousand dollars but that didn’t stop Ms Heard from
22:19
telling the world that she donated everything because remember she wanted nothing
22:26
and she had donated everything the word donated and that didn’t stop her from testifying
22:33
under the penalty of perjury that she had donated it Mr tried to tell you that pledge and
22:40
donate mean the same thing she claims she hasn’t given the money because she was sued
22:46
but you’ve Heard on contested evidence that she had the money for 13 months prior to this
22:53
lawsuit being commenced by Mr Depp she had all the money and had month after month after month
23:01
to fulfill her pledge and actually donate the money but she didn’t
23:07
she also told you that she never fulfilled the pledge because Mr Depp sued her for defamation
23:13
that’s a blatant lie after the divorce was finalized when she
23:20
sought to initiate an arbitration against Mr deb for defamation three months before the op-ed was even
23:27
published and six months before Mr debt filed this lawsuit
23:33
not only does this contradict mr’s excuse for not making donations it contradicts her narrative that she
23:40
just wants to move on with her life that she just wants Mr Depp to leave her alone
23:46
lies that is Ms Heard’s narrative lies upon lies
24:09
actually were all kinds of accusations uh flying your way when you said all this and then there was a divorce
24:15
settlement you got seven million dollars people were saying this is all about the money but then you did something that uh
24:22
twisted that whole argument what did you do with that money seven million dollars in total was donated to
24:28
i split it between the aclu and children’s hospital of Los Angeles clu is a human rights organization sorry
24:34
aclu is a prominent organization non-profit
24:44
the giant organizat at the heart of this case Ms herd’s claim that Mr Depp is an
24:51
abusive monster and that she is a public figure representing domestic abuse
24:57
at the start of this case Mr chu and I told you that you were going to hear some disturbing and graphic tales of
25:03
abuse from Ms Heard and they were designed to shock you and overwhelm you
25:10
which you have we told you that this would be a performance the role of her lifetime
25:17
as a heroic survivor survivor of brutal abuse when Mr dutt brought this case for
25:23
defamation Ms Heard went all in she spun a story of shocking
25:29
overwhelming brutal abuse she came into this courtroom prepared to give the performance of her life and she
25:36
gave it Ms Heard Ms herd’s acting coach christina sexton testified that miss
25:43
Heard has difficulty crying when she is acting you saw it
25:49
Ms Heard sobbing without tears while spinning elaborate exaggerated
25:55
fantastical accounts of abuse and everything going on in her mind almost a decade prior while enduring
26:01
that abuse it was a performance she told you that what she thinks about
26:08
excuse me she told you what she thinks you need to hear to convict this man as a domestic abuser
26:15
and a rapist she wants you to believe that she was abused countless times
26:22
countless times over the entire course of their relationship
26:29
but as Mr chu and I promised you the evidence just does not bear that out
26:34
ms Heard has told you that she has mountains of evidence of abuse
26:39
but there are no medical records reflecting she sustained any injuries from the abuse she claims
26:46
ms Heard had medical professionals at her disposal dr kipper debbie lloyd her own nurse
26:53
aaron felotti and yet there’s nothing
26:59
miss her took pictures all the time pictures of Mr Depp sleeping
27:14
pictures of cocaine pictures of property damage
27:20
pictures of herself and as an actress she was photographed all the time
27:26
where are the pictures of the horrific injuries Ms Heard describes
27:34
miss herd also took audio recordings and videos frequently where are the videos of Mr Depp
27:40
attacking her where are the audio recordings of Mr Depp admitting to or apologizing for
27:46
physical abuse there are none what Ms Heard has and what you’ve seen
27:51
multiple times is a video of Mr Depp banging some cabinets around in a kitchen
27:57
a video that based on the testimony you heard from morgan tremaine the former tmz employee Ms Heard seems to have
28:04
sold to tmz right before she was deposed in connection with her divorce from mr
28:09
Depp
28:21
sure Ms Heard can point to text messages where Mr Depp is apologizing to her but never for violence
28:29
Heard’s counsel showed you defendants exhibit 325 where Mr Depp says sorry for quote my
28:36
behavior i’m a fucking savage but this is not an apology violence it’s an apology for the quote
28:44
these heinous slinging insults Mr Depp is apologizing for the words he
28:51
used unlike Ms Heard who you heard apologizing for physical
28:57
violence in multiple audio recordings you have never Heard that from Mr Depp
29:03
because he never used physical violence against Ms Heard
29:11
miss her told you that Mr Depp started abusing her right from the very beginning of her relationship starting
29:17
at the beginning of 2012 but she has repeatedly testified under oath
29:24
differently to having spent a year of bliss with Mr Depp before he ever laid a hand on her
29:30
and now now in this courtroom she has suddenly erased an entire year
29:37
of magic she wants you to believe that instead of hitting her after a year of magic mr
29:43
Depp was hitting her immediately the good times she has testified to
29:49
about repeatedly in the past apparently never happened and with the good times erased
29:55
ms Heard wants you to believe that she gave Mr Depp a big knife
30:00
that said hasta la until Depp
30:06
to the man who supposedly would get drunk and high and beat her
30:15
miss hurt admitted to you during this trial that Mr Depp always wears big chunky rings on every finger according
30:22
to her he was wearing these rings when he’d slap her hit her punch her in the face
30:29
but you have not seen a scene a single photograph that reflects serious injuries Heard would have
30:35
sustained if this was true not one
30:41
mister testified to an incident in march 2013 when Mr Depp supposedly hit her multiple times in the face while wearing
30:48
rings and this is what her face looked like afterwards
31:02
miss her testified to an incident in russia where she claims Mr Depp whacked her in the face and gave her a bloody nose
31:09
she didn’t take pictures of her bloody nose but her photograph was taken on that trip and this is what she looked like
31:38
miss her told you that there was an incident the night of the met gala in may 2014 when Mr Depp supposedly whacked
31:45
miss her in the face leaving her with a red discolored and slow swollen nose that she felt
31:51
was broken Ms Heard didn’t show you any photographs of these alleged injuries the
31:56
photographs were taken of her the following night and there were no visible injuries to Ms hurd’s face
32:19
miss her testified that in january 2015 while she and Mr Depp were in tokyo mr
32:24
Depp knelt on her back so aggressively that she was concerned that bruises would be visible in her backless dress
32:32
here’s Ms hurt in that backless dress
32:48
miss her testified that after an incident in december 2015 she had two black eyes
32:54
a broken nose and chunks of hair missing the assault was allegedly so violent
33:01
that there was blood left all over the pillows and Mr Depp had broken the bed frame
33:07
pictures were taken of that bed frame
33:14
and in that picture there appears to be a pocket knife on the bed
33:22
and that picture fails to capture the bloody pillows
33:35
and here is what Ms Heard look like on the james corden show the next day
33:48
indeed you heard from Ms Heard’s own nurse aaron felatti that she saw her a day or two afterwards and could not
33:55
visualize the injuries Ms Heard described Ms her did take pictures of herself
34:01
after this alleged incident but are the injuries reflected in these photographs consistent
34:07
that’s the question are they consistent with the brutal assault and serious injuries Ms Heard has testified to
34:15
or are these injuries more consistent with Mr Depp’s testimony that he and miss
34:21
Heard bumped heads while he was trying to restrain Ms Heard to keep her from attacking him
34:34
out of australia where Mr Depp sustained the most serious injury from his relationship with miss
34:39
Heard Ms Heard spun a story of horror a three-day ordeal with drugs with a
34:45
drug field Mr Depp violently assaulting her cutting his own finger off dragging her
34:50
through glass and then bending her back over a counter and raping her with a whiskey bottle
34:58
she claimed that she had bruises on her face cuts all over her arms and feet and was
35:03
bleeding from her vagina from the sexual assault
35:09
and what did Ms Heard say she did she went upstairs took some sleeping pills and went to
35:16
sleep the next morning she took pictures of the mirrors her husband had written on
35:24
in paint using his amputated finger she took no pictures of herself her
35:30
alleged injuries or the proper day property damage she testified to in this courtroom
35:38
when malcolm connolly jerry judge dr kipper and nurse debbie lloyd arrived
35:43
to extract Mr Depp and get him medical treatment for his finger injury you heard from Mr connolly dr kipper and
35:51
miss lloyd all of them testified they did not observe any injuries to Ms Heard
35:56
and no one including Ms Heard testified that she sought medical treatment
36:02
you also Heard from ben king he also saw Ms Heard right after this alleged incident he flew home with her
36:09
to Los Angeles he testified that Mr didn’t want to leave that she said I can’t leave i
36:15
can’t leave it will be the end if I leave he also testified that once they did
36:21
leave for Los Angeles Ms Heard asked him if he ever got so mad he just lost it
36:29
when Ms hurt arrived in Los Angeles she saw travis mcgivern who also testified he observed no injuries
36:36
and her personal nurse aaron fellati who documented no requests for medical treatment and no injuries in her nursing
36:43
notes for Ms Heard you heard from Mr Depp’s sister christy that she also saw Ms Heard when she    
36:50
arrived back to Los Angeles and observed no injuries on Ms Heard christie testified that when she told Ms Heard
36:57
her fighting with Mr Depp was unsustainable Ms Heard responded that christy should get off her cross
37:04
that Mr Depp liked her feisty Mr testimony about what occurred in
37:11
australia just doesn’t add up that’s because there was a monster in that house in australia but it wasn’t mr
37:17
Depp it was Ms Heard other than Ms herd’s testimony all the
37:24
evidence you’ve seen in this trial shows that it was Ms Heard who attacked and grievously wounded Mr Depp when she
37:30
threw a vodka bottle at him severing his finger Mr Depp told dr kipper that when dr
37:37
kipper arrived to treat Mr duff’s finger you’ve seen the pictures of the bar area
37:42
in australia with the broken vodka bottles on the ground and trails of blood drops on the floor and a bloody
37:48
tissue on the floor you’ve Heard from ben king that the tip of Mr Depp ’s finger was found in the
37:54
same bar area and you heard from dr gilbert that the injury to Mr Depp ’s finger could have
38:00
been caused exactly as he described interestingly you heard from christina
38:06
sexton that Ms Heard told her that Mr Depp injured his finger while swinging
38:12
a bottle around not smashing a phone as Ms Heard surmised in this courtroom but swinging
38:18
a bottle around you also Heard from Ms sexton that miss
38:25
Heard first told her about the bottle rape in australia while Ms sexton was at Ms hurt’s home
38:31
meeting with her lawyers the day before Ms sexton was scheduled to be deposed in this case
38:39
the evidence presented at this trial shows that this is not the only time that Mr disclosed a sexual assault at not
38:58
mr Depp ’s available submitted a sworn statement in the uk action describing the incident she
39:04
testified to in this courtroom where Ms Heard chased Mr Depp out of the house was yelling and then pleading
39:11
with Mr Depp to stay while clawing at his hair and clothes and left Mr dip with an injury to his
39:17
face that’s the first time she disclosed it after there was contrary evidence
39:25
mister testified about another incident just two weeks after the events in australia
39:30
where Mr Depp supposedly attacked Ms Heard and almost pushed her sister whitney down the stairs
39:36
whitney is the only witness that you heard from that backs up Ms hurd’s version of events she’s it
39:43
and the only witness other than Ms Heard who claims to have seen Mr Depp physically attack Ms Heard
39:50
but just like Ms Heard’s version of the events in australia her testimony about the staircase incident and that of her
39:56
sister whitney’s just doesn’t square up with the other evidence in this trial their testimony is contradicted by the
40:03
testimony of travis mcgivern and debbie lloyd who were there that night
40:09
miss Heard and whitney testified that Mr Depp threw a red bull can that hit or almost hit Ms lloyd
40:15
miss lloyd testified that never happened Mr mcgivern testified that it was
40:21
Ms Heard who threw a can at Mr Depp mister testified that whitney was
40:27
between her and Mr Depp when she punched him Mr mcgivern testified that he was the
40:33
one between Ms Heard and Mr Depp when Ms Heard punched Mr Depp
40:40
ms Heard testified that Mr Depp was able to get his hands in her hair yank her and then hit her in the face
40:46
with the cast he had on but you heard from Ms lloyd and dr colbert Mr deff’s medical doctor who
40:53
treated Mr Depp’s finger injury that Mr Depp’s finger was in a delicate state
40:58
he had a pin in his finger a skin graft and a soft cast that immobilized mr
41:03
Depp’s two middle fingers and tellingly the only picture of an injury from this
41:10
incident is of Mr Depp with a shiner
41:18
and then we have may 21st 2016. Ms Heard testified that Mr Depp threw
41:24
a phone at her face causing a visible injury matured has shown you pictures she
41:30
claims to show this injury but these photographs are not to be trusted
41:35
you heard from Mr dewmeister that like many of the photographs Ms Heard has presented in this case these photos were
41:41
stored in a photo editing application and these photos show signs of
41:48
manipulation
41:53
these two photographs were taken at the exact same time and have the exact same file name
42:02
but they are visually different
42:08
one shows significantly more redness on Ms herd’s face than the other which doesn’t show any injury at all
42:15
mr testified the difference is explained by turning on a light
42:21
but there is no way Ms Heard could have taken a picture turned on a light and then taken another
42:27
picture with every hair in the exact same place within the same second
42:32
it’s impossible
42:37
moreover you heard from multiple witnesses including officer Melissa Signs Officer Tyler Hadden
42:44
and Officer William Gatlin Isaac Baroosh Alejandra Romero
42:50
who saw Ms Heard on or after may 21 and saw no injuries to her face before
42:56
she showed up to that courthouse with a mark on may 27th
43:02
and the very next day after Ms Heard walked into court with what appeared to be a bruise on her face to obtain a
43:07
domestic violence restraining order against Mr Depp Ms Heard was photographed laughing with
43:13
her best friend fresh-faced with no bruise on her face
43:32
the mountain of evidence that Mr Depp abused Ms Heard is simply not there
43:38
what we have is a mountain of unproven allegations that are wild over the top and implausible
43:45
and you can’t pick and choose which of these wild allegations to believe and which ones to disregard
43:51
you either believe all of it or none of it either Mr Depp sexually assaulted
43:57
Ms Heard with a bottle in australia or Ms Heard got up on that stand in front of all of you
44:04
and made up that horrific tale of abuse either she’s a victim of truly horrific
44:09
abuse or she is a woman who is willing to say absolutely anything  
44:19
it is disturbing to think that Ms Heard would make up the horrific tales of abuse that she testified to in this
44:25
courtroom but this case doesn’t come down to whether you believe Ms Heard or you
44:30
believe Mr Depp this case comes down to whether you believe Ms Heard or you believe
44:37
Mr Depp Christy Dombrowski Sean Bett Malcolm Connolly
44:43
Travis Mcgivern Starling Jenkins Keenan Wyatt
44:48
Dr Kipper Nurses Debbie Lloyd and Aaron Fellotti Tara Roberts
44:54
Ben King Kate James Kate Moss Dr Colbert
45:00
Morgan Knight Morgan Tremaine Officers Melissa Signs
45:06
Officers Tyler Hadden Officer William Gatlin and Beverly Leonard
45:13
what Ms Heard testified to in this courtroom is the story of far too many women
45:20
but the overwhelming evidence weight of that evidence shows that it’s not her story
45:26
it’s not Ms Heard’s story it was an act of profound cruelty not  
45:34
just to Mr Depp but to true survivors of domestic abuse for Ms Heard to hold herself out as a
45:41
public figure representing domestic abuse it was false it was defamatory and it
45:48
caused irreparable harm and to talk more about that i’m going to turn it over to my colleague and my
45:55
friend Mr chu
46:12
you
