Amber Heard’s lawyer says having cameras in the courtroom turned the trial into a ‘zoo’

Amber Heard’s attorney says the decision to have cameras in the courtroom turned the trial against Johnny Depp into “a zoo”.

Lawyer Elaine Bredehoft said NBC today she objected to the decision to televise the trial and Ms Heard was ‘demonized’ by Mr Depp’s lawyers, which was repeated on social media.

After an explosive six-week libel trial watched by millions on social media and live TV, Johnny Depp and Amber Heard each face an uphill battle trying to rebuild their image and their careers.

The verdict in Virginia on Wednesday found that Mr Depp had been defamed by three statements in an op-ed written by Ms Heard in which she said she had been the victim of abuse.

The jury awarded him more than $10 million (over $13 million). But jurors also found Ms Heard had been defamed by a lawyer for Mr Depp who accused her of creating a detailed hoax surrounding the abuse allegations. She received $2 million.

Mr Depp had hoped the libel suit would help restore his reputation.

However, legal and entertainment experts say the reputations of the two actors have been tainted by ugly details about their brief marriage that came out during the televised trial watched by millions.
