Depp’s lawyer Camille Vasquez has her own victory

Published

on

The lawyer behind Johnny Depp’s successful court battle against ex-wife Amber Heard has quickly been promoted by the law firm she works for

Camille Vasquez caught the world’s attention when she started representing the actor, emerging as a major player in the trial.

Law firm Brown Rudnick, where Vasquez works, has announced they have accelerated their employee from associate to partner.

It comes less than a week after she helped Johnny Depp secure a $15 million dollar payday, after the jury largely ruled in the actor’s favour.

It’s no secret Vasquez was the public face of Depp’s legal team over the course of the six week trial.

While the team representing Depp consisted of nine other attorneys, none were adored by the millions watching along at home like her.

Cross examining Heard, Vasquez then used her closing arguments to tell the jurors it was actually Heard who had been the abuser in the relationship.

In a statement, Brown Rudnick says the attorney’s performance during the Johnny Depp trial proved to the world that she is ready to take this next step now.

Vasquez says she is delighted to have the firms’ “full vote of confidence.”

The title of partner generally includes an ownership stake, more money and greater influence.

Pet fish playing Nintendo Switch rack up credit card bill

Pet fish playing a video game in Japan have managed to log on to the Nintendo Switch store, change their owner’s avatar, set up a PayPal account and rack up a credit card bill

And it was all seemingly livestreamed on a YouTube channel, in real time.

The channel owner, Mutekimaru, had previously installed sophisticated motion detection tracking software in fish tanks, enabling the fish to remotely control a Nintendo Switch console.

But the technology, led to an unexpected turn of events earlier this month while the owner was live-streaming a game of Pokémon.

The fish managed to change the name of their owner’s Switch account before twice logging into the Nintendo store.

They also managed to “check” legal terms and conditions, downloaded a new avatar and even set up a PayPal account from the Switch.

The fish were also seen adding 500 yen to the Switch account from the owner’s credit card during the livestream – exposing his credit card details in the process.
