Legal Momentum's Legal Director, Jennifer Becker, was quoted in a Huffington Post article discussing the potential effects the Johnny Depp v. Amber Heard defamation trial will have on survivors of domestic violence when deciding to disclose the abuse or not. 


“This is so high profile and so widely covered … the potential impact here is the chilling effect on survivors who are going to add this to the calculation with all the other barriers there are: Do I talk about my experience?
