The latest development involves the adjournment of Johnny Depp court case. The Pirates of Caribbean star is suing the New Group Newspaper (NGN), the publisher of the Sun, as well as Dan Wootton, the newspaper’s executive editor over the article in which they referred to him as a wife-beater.
At the high court on Friday, Mr Justice Nicol announced the following,
I have reached the reluctant conclusion that the trial does have to be adjourned, said Mr. Justice
The primary cause of the adjournment is the Covid-19, which has seen two of Johnny's legal representative self-isolating themselves.
No one can predict whether others involved in the case, and I do not exclude myself, will either become infected or need to self-isolate because … they have come into contact with someone who has or may have the virus, said the judge
