Depp's lawyer David Sherborne interrupted planned testimony Friday and asked judge Andrew Nicol to allow him to play what he called "critical" new evidence in the case. Nicol agreed despite the star-studded case running behind schedule on what was supposed to be its last day. The undated video showed Amber's sister Whitney chatting with a group of women by a sunny pool.
