FAIRFAX, VA. - A judge said a defamation lawsuit actor Johnny Depp filed against his ex-wife, actress Amber Heard, can move ahead in Fairfax County, Virgnia.

Depp and Heard divorced in 2017 and have accused each other of verbal and physical abuse.

Depp’s $50 million suit was in response to an op-ed by Heard that appeared in The Washington Post in December of last year.

In the op-ed, Heard discusses her exposure to abuse. She does not mention Depp’s name, but he said that there is no mistaking that she’s talking about him.

The lawsuit was filed in Fairfax County because the newspaper is printed in Springfield, Virginia.
