A thread with statements from witnesses and court docs

Film director Furman: the claims that Johnny “attacked” a location manager, even attempting to throw a punch, are totally false. huffingtonpost.co.uk/entry/johnny-d…
Depp’s lawyer: “Despite false media reports suggesting otherwise, Johnny Depp never touched the person suing him, as over a dozen witnesses present will attest. In a court filing we have generally denied all claims and we will fight these latest sham allegations.”
Crew members who were there insist it never escalated beyond a verbal confrontation and no punches were ever thrown.

“They had a little moment, there weren’t punches, there wasn’t anything, just were in each others’ face for a second,” script supervisor Emma Danoff, who was
sitting next to JD when the alleged altercation began:. “We shot for maybe another hour-and-a-half after that, we went inside. We finished & the locations guy came up to Johnny and they hugged & it was all cute and that was it.”

Three other crew members support her recollection
Sullivan believes that these same political pressures may have contributed to the postponement of the release of City of Lies, adding, “I think Johnny is being made a scapegoat and frankly, it pisses me off.”
Danoff says they were shooting outside and Brooks berated an African-American homeless woman with “racial and derogatory slurs” because she was in his way. Depp was sitting next to her about 25 feet away when it happened.

“He immediately stood up from our shared seat on the edge
of a planter bench and went over to Brooks to stand up for the woman,” Danoff says. “Mr. Depp said to Mr. Brooks, ‘You can’t talk to her like that. You think she is something less than you? Who do you think you are? How dare you?’”

Danoff says there were no punches thrown and
no offer of $100,000 for Brooks to punch Depp — and she says she has 40 time-stamped photos that prove it.

“Mr. Brooks, and others who have abused Mr. Depp, are about to discover the consequences for making false accusations,” says Depp’s attorney.
“Any such statement would have been false because the real reason Open Road would not release the Picture is because Open Road and Global Road are in financial distress
The man who sued Johnny Depp for allegedly punching him on a film set blew off a court hearing this week and now faces possible sanctions by the court.
All of the claims made by the location manager are absurd. We will prove that as we fight this case.— What Johnny Depp’s attorney has to say about the allegations made by a local manager
The crew member is dismissing “City of Lies” director Brad from the case, leaving Depp & his production company as the sole defendants.
He also dropped parts of his lawsuit against Depp but is still pursuing his claim of assault & battery against the actor theblast.com/johnny-depp-al…
Depp is asking a Los Angeles Court judge to reclassify the case filed by Gregg “Rocky” Brooks as a “limited civil case”. He wants the case moved to a lower court, saying any damages awarded should be less than $25,000.

The actor says the allegations in Brooks’ complaint could
not result in damages greater than $25,000.

Depp does not believe punitive damages are warranted in this case. He points out Brooks failed to claim any medical expenses, and the actor continues to deny the alleged assault ever occurred.

He also points out that
a script supervisor, Emma Danoff, on the set of the film gave a declaration “attesting to the fact that no physical altercation occurred between Mr. Depp & Mr. Brooks that night, & that she took multiple contemporaneous photographs that confirm her testimony & Mr. Depp’s account.
In her declaration, Danoff wrote that on the night of the alleged assault Depp was “meeting with homeless individuals who were on the street where the City of Lies filming was taking place … He gave them money and gifts.”

She claims to have worked with Depp that night and
denies Brooks claims he was drunk.

Danoff even accuses Brooks of having an incident with a black homeless woman, claiming he “loudly and aggressively berated the woman with racial and derogatory slurs for being in his presence and in his way.

She says Depp “immediately stood up
… went over to Brooks to stand up for the woman. Mr. Depp said to Mr. Brooks, “you can’t talk to her like that. You think she is something less than you.” She said the actor and Brooks exchanged words and Depp then sat down. Danoff denies Depp ever touched Brooks or told him to
punch him.

Depp is using the declaration in support of his attempt to move the case to the lower court.

the inconsistencies in the claims in the court doc
full doc is here: pmcdeadline2.files.wordpress.com/2018/07/depp-c… (note, these docs don’t present the current case anymore, because plaintiff dropped the case against all the defendants except Johnny, so only those claims need attention)
“you have no right to tell me what to do” only he hadn’t told him anything yet. he didn’t even know he was going to talk to him. he says that before he said something to Johnny, Johnny started screaming at him…. for something he said to Johnny. I didn’t know Johnny was a mind
reader. also he is apparently a crazy drunk who is selective in who he gets angry to. A massive set of people, but plaintiff is the only one who will get it.

Also this would have happened “on or about 13th april 2017″,(very weird how we are not getting a set day, as if one would
forget, if this story was true, it would be very easy to find out to) but the stamp on the court doc says 6th of july 2018. Meaning he waited nearly a year to press charges (he also didn’t go to police, and the police was on set) the story did leak in the press a month before he
pressed charges. For some reason he felt compelled to go to the media first. Extortion maybe?

and last but not least: some post from people who worked with Johnny on the film:
so for all those saying that this case “proofs” that he is “abusive”. No, it really doesn’t
