Johnny's lawyers want the case to be decided in Virginia and Amber's lawyers think that would not be fair for the actress and it should be decided in California.

The ruling of the location motion is yet to be announced which will be decided after the judge returns from the vacation.

Meanwhile, Amber's lawyers want the case to be dismissed if the ruling for the motion goes against their demand.

It seems impossible for the defending party as the judge has already set the date for the trial on February 3, 2020.

The defamation case was filed in March while Johnny Depp's side alleged that Amber's domestic abuse claims were partly false.
