Johnny Depp Settles Yet Another Lawsuit From A Former Manager

Johnny Depp is sure to give his lawyer a lot of work this year. There are new reports that the actor has settled another lawsuit against him from a former location manager. Here’s what you need to know.

Depp was reportedly accused of assaulting Greg “Rocky” Brooks during production for the 2018 film City of Lies. According to documents obtained by the PA news agency, the case is now set to be dismissed next year after an agreement was reached two weeks before trials begin. Further details of the settlement were not disclosed.

“The Settlement Agreement is conditional on the dismissal of this matter from the satisfactory performance of certain conditions not to be satisfied within 45 days of the date of the Settlement,” the settlement statement said. “An application for dismissal will be made no later than May 1, 2023.”

The original lawsuit alleged that Depp attacked Brooks after the site manager told him production was wrapped up for the night. It comes after the actor’s victory in the high-profile defamation case brought against his ex-wife Amber Heard last month.

Depp’s attorneys said there was “no legitimate basis” for the Aquaman star to appeal a new trial in the multi-million dollar case. The actor’s reps said the verdict in her favor was “well supported by the overwhelming evidence (and) in accordance with the law” and that the appeal “bordered on the frivolous.”

A Virginia jury found both Depp and Heard liable for defamation after a trial focused on bitterly contested domestic violence allegations. The jury awarded Depp $15 million in damages after finding that a 2018 Washington Post article written by Heard about the “sexual violence” he allegedly suffered libeled Depp.

The jury also found that Heard was defamed by testimony from Depp’s attorney, Adam Waldman, who told the Daily Mail her allegations of abuse were a “hoax” and awarded her $2 million in damages.
