In a response to Heard’s attorney, Depp’s lawyer said in a statement obtained by PEOPLE, “Here’s a scorecard on the “baseless litigation” we have brought against those who have financially or violently abused Johnny Depp: his former business managers TMG settled favorably for Mr. Depp after we exposed them as the target of multiple federal criminal investigations and their office was raided by the FBI in June 2017.”
“His former law firm Bloom Hergott just announced the ‘retirement’ of Bloom AND Hergott and a restructuring of the firm to evade liability less than 4 months before trial in a case where the primary issue has already been won in court. And Ms. Heard, the self-appointed leader of the #metoo movement despite a prior arrest and incarceration for violent domestic abuse, now faces a growing mountain of evidence including new female victims coming forward, a fraudulent letter to Homeland Security, scheming in writing with her lawyer to suborn witness perjury, and her infamous hoax getting obliterated by 24 sworn eyewitnesses, 2 police officers, 87 video surveillance tapes, audio tape, and her own sworn confessions of violence.”
“In contrast, Amber Heard’s lawyer says ‘the evidence in this case is clear,’ and then presents none,” the statement concluded.
Monday’s declaration is “packed with new evidence,“ Depp’s Washington lawyer, Adam Waldman, told USA TODAY in a statement, saying the sworn statement "utterly destroys each of Amber Heard’s abuse hoaxes and shows she is a serial abuser of men and women who uses fraud to get what she wants.”
