Johnny Depp must pay ACLU for Amber Heard evidence used in defamation case
The ACLU, a non-profit organization, originally asked for $86,000 in attorneys'
fees for complying with a subpoena, but
Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Arthur Engoron
ruled they get less than half after Depp's lawyers filed a motion.
, the ACLU's lawyer, had argued that the $86,000 was for
"considerable expense spent responding to onerous subpoenas served by
Mr. Depp from an underlying action in which neither the ACLU nor any of
its employees are parties," according to
Law & Crime
Depp asked for thousands of documents over a six-year period as he
preared for the defamation trial, according to Teplin.
