Lawyer In Next Case Speaks Out As Johnny Depp Prepares To Go Back To Court On Assault Claims

Johnny Depp has been wrapped up in legal situations for quite some time now. Most recently, the Pirates of the Caribbean star was entangled in a (televised) six-week defamation case with his ex-wife, Amber Heard. ultimately, the jury’s verdict fell in Depp’s favour, as Heard was found guilty of three counts of defamation and now must pay her ex millions of dollars. While Depp has apparently closed the book on that situation, he’s now facing an assault-related lawsuit from a former colleague. And the accuser’s lawyer is speaking out ahead of the trial.

The plaintiff in this legal case is Gregg “Rocky” Brooks, who worked as a location manager on Johnny Depp’s Tupac-centric crime drama, City of Lies. Brooks filed suit back in 2018, alleging that the star punched him twice in the rib cage. The crew member claims that by committing the purported act, Depp was “inflicting emotional distress” on him. Brooks also stated that after the star supposedly punched him, he proceeded to taunt him, before Depp apparently offered the manager $100,000 to punch him in the face.
