“We don’t comment on open or pending litigation,” an LAPD public information officer told Deadline.
The “Aquaman” star reportedly wants the material to determine whether officers “followed LAPD policy, procedures and/or protocols in responding to the call at Eastern Columbia Building on May 21, 2016 respecting Ms. Heard.”
Heard also has reportedly requested “all documents and communications of any nature respecting any investigation of, and any disciplinary actions taken against Officers Saenz and Hadden for any conduct up through December 2016.”
Depp sued his ex-wife for $50 million for defamation and she countersued. A trial is set for 2022.
Depp and Heard were married for 15 months before she filed for divorce in 2016.
