    Memorabilia from the Depp-Heard defamation trial - including used wristbands and a notebook full of 'top secret' jury observations - are now selling for thousands of dollars on eBay. Larry Forman, a defense attorney from Louisville, Kentucky, attended the court case - which saw Depp win $15 million, while Heard took home $2 million - for various days back in May, and during his time there, he wrote down almost everything he saw in a notebook. Exes Heard, 35, and Depp, 58 - who tied the knot in 2015, and were married for one year before Heard filed for divorce in 2016 - battled it out in court to determine if a 2018 Washington Post essay written by Heard, in which she accused the actor of domestic abuse, defamed Depp. Memorabilia from the Depp-Heard trial - including used wristbands and a notebook full of 'top secret' jury observations (pictured) - are selling for thousands of dollars on eBay Larry Forman (pictured), an attorney from Kentucky, attended the court case for various days back in May, and during his time there, he wrote...
    It’s the bitter $100million defamation trial that has captivated millions around the world as two Hollywood stars battle it out live on camera. Day after day of courtroom drama has been filmed as Pirates of the Caribbean star Johnny Depp sues his ex-wife Amber Heard over her claims she is a domestic abuse survivor. It has ranged from farcical scenes - with Heard's lawyer at one point objecting to his own question and Depp's doorman vaping during his deposition - to emotional testimony given by Heard alleging in graphic detail that her ex-husband sexually abused her. Depp, 58, sued Heard, 36, for $50million because she described herself in a Washington Post article as a 'public figure representing domestic abuse'. Aquaman actress Heard counter-sued for $100million because she said Depp defamed her when his lawyers called her claims a 'sexual violence hoax' and 'fake'. Here, MailOnline compiles ten videos that capture some of the most dramatic moments from the Virginia trial…  Pirates of the Caribbean star Johnny Depp (pictured today) sued his ex-wife, Aquaman actress Amber Heard, for $50million because...
    More than six years ago Amber Heard taunted her ‘big baby’ husband Johnny Depp, urging him to tell the world he was a victim of abuse.  To say he was a husband who got hit by his wife, and see who would believe him. This week in court he held up his right hand and did just that.  Not to swear an oath, but to show the damage to one of his fingers. The actor alleges the top of it was severed after Heard threw a second bottle of vodka at him, after the first one missed.  ‘It’s mangled,’ he said, his small fingers spread out like a starfish, the middle one indeed looking as if a passing crab had nipped off the top.  Following the incident, which took place in Australia in 2015, Depp went predictably Deppesque, using the pumping stump as a handy paint brush, writing in a frenzy on walls and lampshades and mirrors. When the blood ‘dried up’ Johnny, who claimed he was in the throes of shock and nervous breakdown, then dipped the stump in...
    Take a step back from the public spectacle that is the Johnny Depp/Amber Heard trial and hold a mirror up to our culture. The reflection is not very pretty. The courtroom drama has again exposed the reality that abuse claims have the capacity to be weaponized and that we all play a role in picking victims and villains. But this moment is truly revealing because it seems like Hollywood and pop culture are now siding with the accused, not the accuser. To be honest, at first, I didn't pay much attention to this sad saga. But little by little, I and many others, became more interested in the sheer chaos and intense details dripping out of the Virginia courtroom. If there is any truth to any of it, Depp and Heard had one of the most toxic, dysfunctional, and violent relationships since Sid and Nancy. Depp is one of the most famous, acclaimed, and beloved American actors of his generation. He is Captain Jack Sparrow, the iconic character from the 'Pirates of the Caribbean' franchise, who is so adored that...
    A Pennsylvania woman yelled at a jury returning from deliberating whether or not to convict her and attempted to hit her attorney on Tuesday, according to a release by the Lancaster County district attorney's office. Maritza Gonzalez, 50 of the 2100 block of Old Philadelphia Pike, Lancaster, was convicted of stealing $83.23 worth of items from That Fish Place in Lancaster County Court on Feb. 15, the release shows. The charge stemmed from a "retail theft and receiving stolen property for an incident occurring on Feb. 11, 2020. Gonzalez had entered the fish and pet store with someone who aided her in concealing and stealing betta fish food, flea and tick drops, dog pajamas, a dog sweater and dog boots, the DA's release shows citing charges filed by East Hempfield Township police officer John Mulligan. When the jury returned with its verdict after about two hours of deliberations, "Gonzalez got out of her chair and starting yelling obscenities at the jury and attempted to strike her own attorney before deputies with the Lancaster County Sheriff's Office subdued her," the release...
    SAN FRANCISCO — A scheduled sentencing hearing for two men who admitted roles in a plot to kidnap a wealthy Northern California cannabis farmer was upended Wednesday morning after a federal judge said he was baffled by one attorney’s last-minute attempts minimize his client’s guilt. The case centers on a shocking, audacious, and sloppy kidnapping plot with a $3 million motive. Prosecutors contend that Emanoel Borisov, Evgeni Kopankov, and Paul Brooks plotted to kidnap the victim from his large marijuana grow, and force him to reveal the location of bundles of cash. Borisov and Kopankov have pleaded guilty to conspiracy to rob and kidnap the victim, while Brooks’ case is still pending. Wednesday morning was supposed to be where both men received sentences, but things quickly delved into chaos. It all started when Kopankov’s lawyer, David Michael, told U.S. District Judge Vince Chhabria he should treat the case as a robbery, not a kidnapping. Dumbfounded, Chhabria reminded Michael that his client had pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit kidnapping — including by pointing out the victim’s home — and asked...
    Thanksgiving, on the fourth Thursday in November, marks the start of America's holiday season: a time to celebrate the harvest and show gratitude for the good things in life. On a sunny day in Manhattan this week, the streets were buzzing, the shops festooned with Christmas decorations, and restaurants and bars were doing a brisk trade as New York rebounded from lockdown restrictions. But a few miles away at Brooklyn's grim Metropolitan Detention Centre, there were no lavish turkey dinners — and little to feel grateful about — for the fallen British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell, 59, as she waited for her 'Trial of the Decade' to start on Monday. She has spent the past 17 months in custody there in conditions described by her own brother as 'degrading' and 'amounting to torture', following her arrest in July 2020 over sex-trafficking allegations.  Soon she could be spending the rest of her life behind bars — unless she convinces a jury of her proclaimed innocence. At Brooklyn's grim Metropolitan Detention Centre, the fallen British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell (pictured), 59, waits for her...
    Libya’s bloody civil war is spilling into American courts and, as the protagonists gear up for a courtroom fight over war crimes, what was once a conflict remote from American politics is taking on a decidedly MAGA tone. On the surface, the courtroom battle pits Khalifa Haftar, the warlord seeking to topple Libya’s internationally recognized government, against civilians who say Haftar’s forces attacked and tortured, killed, and mutilated their civilian family members in violation of U.S. and international humanitarian law. But while the brutal civil war itself may seem remote from American politics, the domestic players aren’t entirely unfamiliar. Representing Haftar is Jesse Binnall, a top Trump attorney who’s had plenty of experience handling lawsuits related to a different kind of insurrection—the Jan. 6 Capitol riot. And his Libyan client, an authoritarian strongman and Trump favorite trying to overthrow the government, is making an argument familiar to many of those currently suing former President Donald Trump: He’s simply too important to face his critics in court. At the center of the suit is whether Haftar, who’s currently waging a civil...

    Was it really only four months ago when Johnny Depp and Amber Heard uncorked the fizzing horror of their marriage in a British courtroom? Four months in which Depp must have enjoyed moments when he felt hopeful about his future and the outcome of this libel trial, only to have them dashed so completely yesterday. Now he faces ruination, for what studio or director would dare to employ him after this career-ending outcome? During the peculiar, fractured summer of 2020, the Depp trial at the High Court was the hottest — and saddest — show in town. Covid had turned Central London into a ghost town. The theatres had gone dark as actors and actresses mouldered unnoticed and unlit; once-thriving careers gathering dust.

    The Trial of The Chicago 7 Movie Review: Aaron Sorkin’s latest political drama is based on the controversial court proceedings against what the press, dubbed as Chicago Seven in 1968. The group, who were the leaders of the anti-Vietnam War protests, was indicted of charges of inciting riots during  1968 Democratic National Convention in Chicago. The Trial of The Chicago 7 follows the courtroom sessions that happened, intercut through which we get glimpses of what exactly happened during the protests that turned it into a riot-like situation. OTT Releases Of The Week: Priyanka Chopra’s Evil Eye on Amazon Prime, Sacha Baron Cohen’s The Trial Of The Chicago 7 on Netflix, and More. Actually, Chicago 7 is an aberration, since they are eight defendants put on trial. Among the seven, we have Abbie Hoffman (Sacha Baron Cohen), Jerry Rubin (Jeremy Strong), David Dellinger (John Carroll Lynch), Tom Hayden (Eddie Redmayne), Rennie Davis (Alex Sharp), John Froines (Daniel Flaherty), and Lee Weiner (Noah Robbins). The final two get minimal scope here, but as Lee puts it out, it is likely being getting nominated...
    toggle audio on and off change volume download audio WTOP's Jason Fraley reviews 'The Trial of the Chicago 7' Few screenwriters have mastered the genre of legal drama like Aaron Sorkin, adapting his own stage play into Rob Reiner’s classic “A Few Good Men” (1992) and penning Facebook litigation for David Fincher’s masterpiece “The Social Network” (2010). Likewise, few screenwriters have mastered political dramas like Sorkin, delivering NBC’s “The West Wing” (1999-2006) and HBO’s “The Newsroom” (2012-2014). Now, the two collide for the Netflix original “The Trial of the Chicago 7,” as Sorkin also takes over the director’s chair for a project originally intended for Steven Spielberg. The story follows the true story of seven men arrested during an uprising outside the 1968 Democratic National Convention in Chicago, Illinois. After the resignation of LBJ and the assassinations of MLK and RFK, the young men believe Democratic nominee Hubert Humphrey isn’t tough enough as they protest against the Vietnam War. To steal a phrase in the news, Sorkin “packs the court” with Hollywood star power. Frank Langella (“Frost/Nixon”) is the...
    THE TRIAL OF THE CHICAGO 7 (15) 129mins ★★★★☆ BOY, does Aaron Sorkin love Brits. In fact, it looks like the American writer/director took a people carrier down to the Royal Shakespeare auditions for this all-male lead cast. 5The Trial of The Chicago 7 is a tale about the Sixties protest movement in America, which centres on the trial of anti-Vietnam War demon­stra­torsCredit: Splash News Mark Rylance, Eddie Redmayne, Sacha Baron Cohen and Alex Sharp star in this tale about the Sixties protest movement in America. It centres on the trial of anti-Vietnam War demon­stra­tors charged with causing violence at the 1968 Democratic National Convention in Chicago. Sorkin, famous for creating The West Wing, is notorious for his frantic, fast dialogue and he doesn’t rest in this sharply written, engaging story. In a blizzard of introductions we meet the main characters before we hurtle straight into the trial. Over the next two hours, time is gently pulled back and forth, charting the politics of how the protests unfolded — and led to violent clashes with police. Each character is...

    LAW Movie Review: There is something called Jolly LLB syndrome that is affecting a few of the recent legal dramas. The syndrome means there would be at least one scene, where a high-profile defense lawyer gets into an argument with a comical judge, who initially seems to be fawning over the former. The recent Kannada film, LAW, written and directed by Raghu Samarth and backed by superstar Puneeth Rajkumar, suffers from this syndrome. But that’s not the only trouble with this film. Ragini Prajwal Speaks Up About Her Debut Film ‘Law’, Says ‘I Trust That We Will Have a Great Premier’. LAW begins with an intriguing sequence where a bruised Nandini (Ragini Prajwal) jumps in front over a couple’s car in a lonely place, while being chased by three men. The couple takes her to the local police station, where she reveals she has been gang-raped by three unidentified men in their vehicle. The police aren’t very co-operative, and so isn’t her father (Avinash). When she faced roadblocks in trying to get justice, Nandini takes matters in her own hands. Her smart plays get...
