#JusticeForJohnnyDepp Trends As Johnny Depp Loses Libel Case Appeal

Johnny Depp films The Sun Libel Case

The hashtag #JusticeForJohnnyDepp is trending yet again as it was revealed that the UK courts opted to refuse Johnny Depp’s appeal against his libel case.

Johnny Depp did try to sue The Sun in the UK after he was branded as a “wife-beater” in one of their articles written by Dan Wootton.

Interestingly enough, Wootton no longer works for The Sun.

He’s since moved over the GB News and is also a columnist for The Daily Mail.

Anyway, Johnny Depp and his lawyers were trying to get the right to appeal the judge’s ruling in the libel case.

Judge Andrew Nicol ruled in favour for The Sun and many fans of Johnny Depp’s and many people who weren’t on one side of the other were rather shocked by the ruling.

The judge claimed that The Sun’s claims in the article were “substantially true”, which is slightly mind-boggling given all the evidence to the contrary.

This is a fascinating story. Many people took the time to look at Judge Andrew Nicol pretty closely and they found out some interesting stuff about him.

Probably the most interesting thing they uncovered is that his son works for talkRADIO in the UK.

This radio station is a subsidiary of News Corp, which is owned by Rupert Murdock and is also part of The Sun.

That is really something that represents to me and many other people who understand the law, a conflict of interests.

Nicol couldn’t possibly rule against Murdock since his son basically works for him.
