Johnny Depp 'set to reunite with lawyer Camille Vasquez' for assault case
Johnny Depp is apparently set to reunite with his lawyer Camille Vasquez in a new legal case.
Vasquez became a star in her own right when she defended the Pirates Of The Caribbean actor in his defamation case against his ex Amber Heard.
And according to reports she will be part of the star's team in his case with Gregg Brooks, who worked on Depp's film City Of Lies in 2018.

In court documents filed in 2018, location manager Brooks claimed that the Hollywood star hit him in the ribs twice.
He also alleged that Depp offered him $100,0000 (£82,000) to hit him in the face in return.
Depp and Heard's multi-million dollar defamation case had fans gripped.
Following a six week trial in the US, a jury found that an op-ed Heard wrote for The Washington Post about being the victim of domestic abuse did defame Depp.
Vasquez was promoted to partner at her law firm following her performance at the trial.
William Baldiga, chairman and chief executive of Brown Rudnick, said: "Historically, we have reserved this announcement for the end of our fiscal year.
"But Camille’s performance during the Johnny Depp trial proved to the world that she was ready to take this next step now.
