The defamation trial of Johnny Depp has been posted and reposted enough times on social media to become a ubiquitous news sensation. However, it may not entirely be due to reasons you may believe. Yes, the contents of the case are triggering and people want to know the truth. But at the same time, several elements from the trial have gone viral. And it mostly has to do with Depp’s lawyers, Ben Chew and Camille Vasquez.
Who is Camille Vasquez?
An international law firm, Brown Rudnick LLP has offices in major cities all over the US and Europe. Benjamin Chew and Camille Vasquez are lawyers employed by Brown Rudnick and are currently fighting the Johnny Depp trial in Fairfax, Virginia.
Over the course of the trial, courtroom videos have emerged where the lawyers are seen celebrating every little victory that tilted the trial in Depp’s favor. However, the videos that have attracted the most appraisals are those of Camille Vasquez.
It is evident that Depp’s lawyers are visibly more competent than Heard’s. With the level of efficiency demonstrated by Vasquez in the recent cross-examination of Amber Heard, she has become a fan favorite. So much so that she has garnered an entire fan base of her own within the past few weeks.
Depp and Vasquez Dating Rumors
Courtroom videos and images have shown Camille Vasquez to be an excellent attorney. And at the end of each trial day, Depp and Vasquez celebrated with a friendly hug. However, the scrutinizing eyes of the paparazzi detected an undercurrent of flirting between the two. But is it all an intentional display to convey some message to the public? When directly confronted with the question by one of the paps, she laughed off the rumor.
Chances could be the entire thing is an act. Mostly because Depp is fighting domestic abuse charges against ex-wife Amber Heard. A character assessment that shows Vasquez at ease in the presence of the man could add greatly to his favor. This helps Depp since he needs to not only win the trial but also the public’s opinion of him. With his career and reputation at stake, the rumors are helping rather than damaging the chances of this trial.
