Amber Heard's dog case delayed for a second time

Amber Heard's lawyer has scored a second adjournment as the actress continues to fight allegations she skipped quarantine protocol when she brought her dogs into Australia earlier this year (15).

The Rum Diary star, 29, has been charged with two counts of illegal importation and one of producing a false document for flying Down Under with her two pet Yorkshire terriers to see her husband Johnny Depp as he was filming the latest Pirates of the Caribbean movie in May (15).


She is accused of failing to get the correct permits, and faces a hefty fine and a lengthy jail term if she is found guilty of the charges.


The court case, which was originally due to begin at the start of November (15), was postponed until Monday (16Nov15) to give Heard's lawyer more time to negotiate with prosecutors, but the actress did not attend the latest date.


Heard's attorney Paula Morreau appeared at Southport Magistrates Court on behalf of the actress to request another adjournment so she could receive further instructions from her client.


The magistrate postponed the case until 7 December (15).
