Battle of the psychiatrists

This time, though, Johnny Depp's expert psychiatrist, Dr. Richard Shaw, rebuked Spiegel's claims and stated that he violated the Goldwater rule.
Hello and welcome to this Wednesday's live blog on the trial involving Johnny Depp and Amber Heard.
After a long battle, we are now in what could be the last week of proceedings. Depp and Heard have both taken to the stand, and now there is a focus on what the witnesses have to say, as well as those close to the former married couple.
It was thought that Depp could be asked to return to the stand, having done so in the early part of the trial, but it appears as though Heard's camp have changed tact and will not do this.
One well-known person who is expected to give evidence via a video link today is Kate Moss, Depp's ex-girlfriend.
The reason for the trial is that Depp is suing Heard for a sum of 50 million dollars due to a domestic abuse column she wrote in the Washington Post in 2018, while she countersued for 100 million dollars.
Throughout the course of day, you will be able to see the latest news surrounding the Depp-Heard trial, as well as updates from the courtroom in Fairfax, Virginia.
The trial is set to resume for Day 22 at 9am local time, which is 2pm in England.
