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.

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.
