A judge has dismissed Amber Heard’s plea in a $50 million defamation complaint, giving Johnny Depp victory.

A judge gave Hollywood actor Johnny Depp permission to proceed with his two-year-old defamation lawsuit against ex-wife Amber Heard. The case will not be dismissed, according to a Virginia court, which also dismissed Heard’s motion to dismiss the lawsuit. Since Depp launched his lawsuit in March 2019, the ‘Aquaman’ star has filed three motions, alleging numerous reasons, including the ruling of her UK libel verdict.

The 58-year-old actor originally sued Heard for defamation in 2018 after she wrote an op-ed in the Washington Post about’surviving domestic abuse.’

In a $50 million defamation action filed in 2019, ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ star Johnny Depp won a huge victory over his ex-wife, Amber Heard.

Johnny Depp, star of ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’, recently made news after Amber Heard accused him of physical assault. The couples broke up and were soon embroiled in a legal dispute. Johnny Depp has just won a significant victory over his ex-wife.

Depp recently stated that he believes he is being boycotted by the Hollywood business as a result of the case. In a $50 million slander action, the actor sued Amber Heard, who is best known for her role in Aquaman. According to a report by Koimoi, Fairfax County Chief Judge Penney Azcarate denied Heard’s move for the case to be dropped, giving Depp a big victory. The lawsuit is now set to go to trial in 2022.

Depp’s defamation suit against his ex-wife has been ongoing for two years. Since 2019, Heard has made three such pleas, all of which have been dismissed. The case will now be tried in Fairfax County, Washington, next year. Both parties will resume discovery, which includes depositions.
