The 57-year-old actor took legal action against NGN (News Group Newspaper), and this clears that he has attacked 34-year-old Ms. Heard “overwhelming evidence” during their ongoing relationship.

Last week, the judge, Mr. Justice Nicol, has refused Mr deep “permission to appeal last week” ruling: “I do not consider that the proposed grounds of appeal have a reasonable prospect of success.”

The same judge has also ordered the Pirates of the Caribbean’s actor to make a payment of £630,000 to NGN for the publisher’s legal fees.

In his ruling, Mr. Justice Nicol said: “In substance, the claimant disagrees with my findings of fact, but for the reasons summarised by (NGN’s barrister Adam Wolanksi QC) the findings of fact by a first instance tribunal – particularly one, such as myself, who has heard oral evidence – are rarely open to challenge on appeal.”

“In any event, I do not consider that the proposed grounds of appeal have a reasonable prospect of success – and that is also the case so far as the grounds of appeal suggest that I erred in principle or in law – and there is not some other compelling reason why permission to appeal should be granted.”
