Johnny Depp denied permission to appeal ’wife beater’ libel ruling

Johnny Depp denied permission to appeal ’wife beater’ libel ruling

A London court has refused actor Johnny Depp permission to challenge a 2020 verdict that concluded he assaulted his former wife, Amber Heard. In July, a London judge dismissed Depp’s libel claim against the publisher of the Sun, finding that a column calling Depp a ’wife beater’ was ’substantially true.’ Now, Depp has to move a US court if he wants to make a new attempt to restore his reputation.

I find this nuts as he brought up piles of evidence and many psychological experts find during the court recordings that Amber Heard was lying during the whole thing. Not just that but Amber was found to be abusing him but I guess a single accusation with nothing backing it is taken more seriously than a real one from him

Brit courts are a joke when it comes to topics of harassments, especially London. Johnny Depp had recordings, every single person surrounding Amber "Poop in the Bed" Heard including her own mother openly voiced disgust with her and admitted to her being a compulsive liar and the definition of a toxic psychopathic personality. Her own mother and these same people praised Johnny Depp and his general person. The Judge must have been paid very handsomely to so openly lie and engage in malpractice. On the other hand, Johnny Depp, you need to be bashed in your head for leaving Vanessa Paradis for THIS. For once you had a perfectly good woman who is not a drug addict or a shoplifter like your previous ones with the exception of Sherilyn Fenn who is also someone worth sticking with.

Does "substantially true" have some alternate definition in brit speak?

No surprises really. The courts are just as corrupt.

He is just stupid. Thinks he is above everyone else and his lawsuit that found this, was instigated by him. These Hollywood types are so far from reality- they should all go to Mars with Musk.

Another example of why the US is better than UK. :)
