Wayne Dennison Johnny Depp
Wayne Dennison is an attorney for Johnny Depp in the defamation trial brought by Johnny Depp against his ex-wife Amber Heard. Depp sued his ex-wife Amber Heard for $50 million for defamation in Fairfax County Circuit Court after she wrote an op-ed piece in The Washington Post in 2018 referring to herself as a “public figure representing domestic abuse.” Although she didn’t name him, he claims her allegations impacted his ability to work. She is pursuing a counterclaim of $100m, of which a motion to dismiss was denied by Judge Penney Azcarate.
On Monday, May 23, 2022, psychiatrist Dr. David Spiegel testified that Depp’s behavior fits the pattern of a person whose drug and alcohol abuse contributes to domestic violence.
Depp lawyer Wayne Dennison questioned the ethics and credibility of the psychiatrist’s opinions, given that he never conducted an examination of Depp.
Later Monday, Dennison extensively questioned another Heard witness, entertainment expert Kathryn Arnold, about her assertion that Heard lost out on a potential $40 million to $50 million when another Depp lawyer called Heard’s claims of abuse a “hoax.”
Arnold said she measured Heard’s career against “comparable” stars like Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa and Zendaya to show where Heard’s career would have gone if Depp attorney Adam Waldman had not defamed her.
Dennison, in his questioning, scoffed at the notion that Heard was in the same league as those stars. He was also dismissive of Heard’s role as Mera in the “Aquaman” superhero film franchise, saying that the to-be-released “Aquaman” sequel is more like a “buddy comedy” than a film that will feature Heard as a romantic lead.
