Day 17 resumed with the cross examination of Amber Heard by Camille Vasquez. Ms. Vazquez continued her established modus operandi of moving through the timeline, highlighting Amber’s prior testimony and evidence, then impeaching it and pointing out the issues with it.
Eventually mid afternoon Ms. Vasquez wrapped her cross, and Elaine Bredehoft stepped up for her redirect. Things didn’t exactly go swimmingly, and it ended with Amber storming out of the courtroom before the judge had dismissed the jurors for the afternoon break. This marked the end of Amber Heard’s time on the stand.
On resumption from the break, we had a video deposition from Amber and Johnny’s former friend iO Tillett Wright. Following that, we began the deposition of Amber’s former best friend Raquel Pennington. The day ended before Ms. Pennington’s deposition could wrap, so that’s where we’ll pick up tomorrow morning when court resumes. We’ll be live from 8:30AM EST.
