Johnny Depp Returns to Court for Gregg Brooks Assault Trial

What I would not give for a little break from reading the words

“Johnny Depp” and “assault” and “trial” altogether in the same sentence.

Unfortunately it appears the legal gods are impervious to my petitions for just a little reprieve,

please, because here we are once again: Johnny Depp is heading back to court

for an assault trial next month. Mercifully, this one will not be televised.

This next lawsuit stems from an incident on the set of City of Lies that

allegedly occurred in 2017: Location manager Gregg “Rocky” Brooks says a

seemingly drunk Depp punched him twice after Brooks tried to shut down

filming for the day. Depp denies this, and now, proceedings will begin on July 25 in Los Angeles County Superior Court.
