Amber Heard's legal team rested its defamation case against Johnny Depp on Tuesday.
Judge Penney Azcarate of the Fairfax County Court revealed that Heard had rested her case as testimony was set to begin for the day. Heard's team had about four hours left to make her case as of the end of the day Monday.
Depp's team immediately moved to dismiss Heard's counterclaim, telling Azcarate that Heard's lawyers had not proved that Depp was aware of any defamatory statements his former lawyer, Adam Waldman, made. Benjamin Chew, one of Depp's lawyers, even went as far as to call Waldman an "independent contractor" of Depp's in an attempt to alleviate Depp of any liability from Waldman's actions.

Heard's lawyer, Ben Rottenborn, attempted to make a case that Waldman was indeed Depp's agent. Rottenborn pointed out that Waldman filed a perjury complaint against Heard with the Los Angeles Police Department.
"That's a shameful and sickening example, your honor, of the lengths Mr. Depp, through his agent Mr. Waldman, would go to smear and to defame Amber Heard," Rottenborn said.
Chew argued that the point of Waldman filing the claim was a "non-sequitur" argument since Rottenborn hadn't brought it up before resting the case. Waldman is also not currently being sued by Heard, according to Chew.
Azcarate disagreed with Chew and saw Waldman as an agent to Depp, saying that Depp does have liability for his agent's torts. She ultimately denied Depp's attempt to dismiss the counterclaim, leaving it up to the jury to decide.
