Judge orders delay for Johnny Depp restraining order hearing

LOS ANGELES >> A judge is delaying the start of a restraining order hearing involving Johnny Depp and his estranged wife because it is expected to span several days.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Carl H. Moor ruled Tuesday that the hearing will begin Aug. 17, two days later than planned. Moor ordered the delay after concluding the hearing on Amber Heard’s allegations that Depp physically abused her could take up to five days.

Depp has been ordered to stay away and not contact his estranged wife, and the hearing could extend that order for several years.

Heard accused Depp of repeatedly hitting her and throwing a cellphone during a fight in their Los Angeles home in May.

Depp’s lawyer Laura Wasser said the actor wants the case resolved as soon as possible.
