Free press advocates in Virginia are concerned that a libel lawsuit between Depp and Heard could set a bad precedent. The Virginia Press Association asked Friday, Nov. 8, 2019 to intervene in a $50 million lawsuit Depp filed against Heard, his ex-wife. Depp says he was defamed by an op-ed piece Heard wrote in The Washington Post in December 2018, in which she never identified Depp by name but referred to herself as a “public figure representing domestic abuse.” Depp has denied abusing Heard and said the article clearly refers to earlier abuse allegations Heard made against him.
