Johnny Depp's lawyer has pleaded guilty in recent days to conducting what she herself described as "psychological warfare" against his ex-wife, Amber Heard, during their high-profile trial. We used ChatGPT to get the disturbing details.
Camille Vasquez, who conducted most of the prosecution's witness investigations during the libel trial between the two Hollywood stars, according to Facebook user Jonathan Cramer, attended a conference for lawyers and exposed particularly nasty tactics used by Depp's legal team against the actress to undermine Heard's confidence in court.
He said Vázquez "said that during the trial, it is possible — and she emphasized the word 'possibly' — that there was some use of psychological warfare." He went on to elaborate: "She said that every morning during the trial, it was 'possible' that one of the members of Mr. Depp's defense team walked into the courtroom that (also) Mrs. Heard used and sprayed Mr. Depp's perfume on the walls of the cells."
This bizarre tactic was meant to make Heard feel nervous and distressed by the fragrant reminder of the intimate presence of the man she accused of abuse. But what is particularly surprising is that Vasquez prided herself on this tactic in front of an audience, even though it was morally questionable conduct at best, and criminal mental abuse at worst.
The discovery sparked a fierce debate online about the ethical boundaries of legal strategies and what lawyers are willing to do to ensure a positive outcome in a legal battle for their clients, regardless of whether the client is guilty or not.
