Amber Heard Spotted Driving in Los Angeles Ahead of Restraining Order Hearing Against Johnny Depp
Lawyers for Johnny Depp and Amber Heard will square off in court Friday
The actress, 30, was seen wearing a pair of sunglasses while behind the wheel, and headed to meetings at the Palihouse in West Hollywood, a source tells PEOPLE.
In the estranged couple’s latest legal maneuvers, Depp’s legal team filed a motion to keep witnesses from taking the stand at Friday’s hearing. In court documents, Depp’s lawyers claim that Heard’s lawyers violated protocol by failing to provide a witness list beforehand. They request that “the Court refuse to receive live testimony from Amber’s non-party witnesses.”
Depp’s attorneys are also requesting that all declarations previously provided by Heard’s witnesses – including her friend iO Tillet Wright and neighbor Raquel Pennington – “be stricken and not considered by the Court because they are inadmissible hearsay.”
This comes just days after a judge denied Depp’s lawyer’s request to depose Heard and Pennington, ruling that the original notice of deposition failed to give Heard the required 10-day notice.

A hearing has been scheduled for Friday in Heard’s domestic violence restraining order case against the actor. Heard was granted a temporary restraining order on May 27, claiming that the actor had abused her throughout their relationship.
In a response, Depp’s lawyer, Laura Wasser, claimed in court filings that Heard “is attempting to secure a premature financial resolution by alleging abuse.”
