Johnny Depp Misstep May Land Court Date

Posted: Nov. 8th, 2012  |  By Michael Pearse

Robin Eckert, a U.C. Irvine Professor, is suing Johnny Depp, or more accurately his security service, for an embarrassing encounter in an Iggy and the Stooges concert last December. The case has been approved by a Los Angeles County Superior Court judge and the case may bring punitive damages against the actor on top of a world of bad PR.

A college professor has been given the go-ahead by a Los Angeles County Superior Court judge to seek punitive damages against actor Johnny Depp.

Robin Eckert, a U.C. Irvine medical professor, filed a lawsuit last April that alleged the "Dark Shadows" actor's bodyguards attacked her while at an Iggy and the Stooges concert at the Hollywood Palladium last December. Eckert, the mother of two, had attended the concert with her husband.
