Amber Heard was facing financial problems
Amber Heard will contribute the money over a period of ten years. As of August 2016, according to commitment contract. In videotaped evidence, ACLU Director of Operations and General Counsel Terence Dougherty. He said that she has not made a payment since December 2018. “We discovered that she was facing financial problems.” When the ACLU contacted Heard about another payment of her contribution in 2019, Dougherty said.

the @ACLU(who I’ve been donating to for over 30 years), wants spousal abuse victim Johnny Depp to pay over $86,000 for producing 3-4 documents proving Amber Heard scammed them.

What? So the ACLU is suing Johnny Depp!? This is some shady shit I’ve seen from an organization (which, by the way, conspired with Amber Heard in writing the JD op-ed) and supports AH as a domestic abuser. This is so wrong. #ACLU supports abusers #JusticeForJohnnyDepp https://t.co/YZyugVccRB

ACLU can’t go after Amber Turd over her $3.5 million pledge as it will embarrass them, so they’re suing Johnny Depp for bias in the name of being “reimbursed”! They are AF from the ghetto. I don’t know who’s worse, them or psycho gold digger Turd! #ACLU supports abusers

I’ve been an ACLU member for years, but after the UK hearing for the Heard V Depp hearing, when they kept her and the whole op-ed, I didn’t renew. JD should sue them for being a party to this defamation defamation case.

Johnny Depp sues Heard for defamation on three counts
Dougherty is in charge of the ACLU’s financial, legal and other departments. In his testimony, he was also probed into the ACLU’s involvement in the op-ed that caused Johnny Depp to sue Heard: 2018 op-ed published by The Washington Post in which Heard advocated for reform in the way that the United States treats survivors of abuse and encouraged support for the Violence Against Women Act. Johnny Depp is suing Heard for defamation on three counts, seeking at least $50 million in compensatory damages and at least $350,000 in punitive damages, as well as attorneys’ fees and court costs.
Heard, 36, has filed a countersuit against Johnny Depp, 58, seeking $100 million in damages and claiming that Johnny Depp’s legal team wrongfully accused her of fabricating allegations against him. Lawyers for Johnny Depp are believed to be wrapping up her juror statement, and Heard’s lawyers are expected to begin presenting her case next week. On Monday, the court will resume its regular session.
