The papers also include previous depositions from the responding officers, who said they did not see any injuries on Heard.

Depp reportedly said of The Sun in the lawsuit, "They must have made a positive decision to present a totally one-sided picture, leaving out my side of the story and pretending it either did not exist or was not worth considering." A hearing for Depp's lawsuit against The Sun is scheduled for February.
