Down to the wire. From what I understand, there will be very few, if any, witnesses called for Depp in rebuttal. Amber will - from what I hear - call witnesses for her countersuit today and closing arguments come tomorrow. Please correct me if I'm wrong via comments an DMs. Yesterday was a blur for me, almost like I was on Johnny Depp-level meds. But here's some highlights.

Getting close to the end of this trial. Amber Heard rested her case yesterday. Team Depp, as is customary, attempted to have her countersuit tossed. Ben Chew misrepresented things in the process. Ben Rottenborn corrected him &, based on decisions made Friday, the Judge refused. The rest of the day was taken by witnesses called by Depp to rebut Amber's witnesses. One was Dr. David A. Kulber, the hand surgeon who actually worked on the finger Depp severed. He did little refute Amber's expert hand surgeon witness on how the injury did or did not occur.

Listening to #DeppAnon compare supporters of Amber Heard to #MAGA is like watching MAGA call people Nazis. It's the very definition of projection, the mental process by which people attribute to others what is in their own minds. If we are to make these comparisons in this entire tribal ordeal, only one side has a figurehead leader court-proven to have spread propaganda
Joseph Goebbels-style. Only one side has based its entire existence on conspiracy theories to explain away inconvenient facts. #DeppAnon

Good morning everyone. It's Tuesday and it's the last week of the #JohnnyDeppVsAmberHeardTrial. I've heard that Ms. Heard's team will be resting today which, I think, will signal rebuttals and what-not. I'm not a lawyer and I don't pretend to be. That's what Johnny Depp fans do. Speaking of 'pretending to be,' much of yesterday was taken up by Depp's lawyers pretending to know as much as a board-certified hand surgeon, a board-certified psychiatrist, and an expert in the entertainment industry.

Hello everyone! It's Monday, May 23, and we're down to the last week of Johnny Depp v Amber Heard. How's it going? As someone put it last week, "If the jury follows the law and the evidence that drunk fake pirate is finished." #IStandWithAmberHeard Last week was particularly persuasive for Amber Heard's side after eye-witnesses, including former Johnny Depp allies, testified in her favor.

Day 20 in Amber Heard v Johnny Depp. Again, apologies for those I left hanging yesterday. I had to bail close to the end of the day to help my daughter who'd been in a car accident. She's fine. To say yesterday was a good day for Amber Heard would be an understatement. With Camille & her incessant objections effectively muzzled, we heard multiple witnesses testify to seeing injuries firsthand on Amber Heard. In other words, the knowledge didn't come from pictures.
