Elaine Bredehoft appeared on The Today Show and claimed that there is ‘no way’ jurors wouldn’t have been ‘influenced’ by the case’s multitude of coverage.
Questioning this, the attorney asked: “How can you not? They went home every night. They have families. The families are on social media.

“We had a 10-day break in the middle because of the judicial conference. There’s no way they couldn’t have been influenced by it.”
The lawyer went on to label the commentary ‘horrible,’ and claimed that she was ‘against cameras being allowed in the courtroom’.
Bredehoft remarked: “It’s like the Roman Colosseum, you know? How they viewed this whole case.
“I was against cameras in the courtroom, and I went on record with that and argued against it because of the sensitive nature of this. But it made it a zoo.”
Heard released a statement after the jury sided with her ex-husband, saying her disappointment was ‘beyond words’.
Taking to Instagram, the Aquaman star penned: “The disappointment I feel today is beyond words. I’m heartbroken that the mountain of evidence still was not enough to stand up to the disproportionate power, influence, and sway of my ex-husband.
“I’m even more disappointed with what this verdict means for other women. It is a setback. It sets back the clock to a time when a woman who spoke up and spoke out could be publicly shamed and humiliated. It sets back the idea that violence against women is to be taken seriously.
“I’m sad I lost this case. But I am sadder still that I seem to have lost a right I thought I had as an American – to speak freely and openly.”
