Johnny Depp is being backed up by a female crew member who denies the actor drunkenly got into a fight with another crew member on a film set.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Depp is asking a Los Angeles Court judge to reclassify the case filed by Gregg “Rocky” Brooks as a “limited civil case”. He wants the case moved to a lower court, saying any damages awarded should be less than $25,000.
The actor says the allegations in Brooks’ complaint could not result in damages greater than $25,000.
Depp does not believe punitive damages are warranted in this case. He points out Brooks failed to claim any medical expenses, and the actor continues to deny the alleged assault ever occurred.
