How is Isaac Baruch involved in Johnny Depp’s case against Amber Heard?

Isaac testified in court in defense of Johnny Depp. He revealed that he never noticed any evidence of abuse from Johnny towards Amber. He's the second witness who was called to the stand during the 2022 trial to speak up on Johnny's behalf. At one point, Isaac got emotional on the stand and said he believes Amber should “take responsibility and move on.”

He further explained how Johnny’s family has been “completely wrecked by all this stuff, and it’s not fair. It’s not right, what she did. … It’s insane.” If it were up to Isaac, this entire situation would end with Johnny’s name being fully cleared of any and all allegations.
