JOHNNY DEPP v NGN & WOOTTON LIBEL TRIAL
WHAT IT'S ABOUT
This section is a repository for documentation and evidence from the Depp v NGN and Wootton libel trial which started at the UK High Court on 7 July 2020.
The Sun newspaper, owned by NGN, called Johnny Depp a "wife-beater". He says this is untrue and defamatory. They say it is true. This trial, with Mr Justice Nicol presiding, will decide that.
There are transcripts, court documents, and witness statements on this website. Soon, photos and other media which have been presented as evidence in open court will be posted. You can use them as appropriate within your own jurisdiction.
Please note the daily transcripts are "unperfected" which means they may contain slight transcription errors, but in my experience they are more than 99% correct.
The story of how I came to cover the Depp libel trial via live-tweets is on this site's blog. If you find the documents on this website useful and would like to make a small donation, please click here.
