According to the court document, which E! Online obtained a pdf copy on Monday, April 16, 2012, a 57-year old disabled woman who identified herself as Jane Doe, a medical professor at UC Irvine, is suing Johnny Depp and Hollywood Palladium in California, where the incident allegedly took place.

As noted in the report, Jane Doe, who filed the lawsuit in L.A. County Superior Court, claims she was left her seat in the V.I.P. area in the said concert before it started, but was not allowed to return and was blocked by Depp‘s bodyguards.

Apparently, the bodyguards reportedly told the complainant and her family to use the other entrance of the VIP area which was located in the opposite side of the theater, with Johnny Depp allegedly standing a few feet away and did nothing on the situation.

In addition, Ms. Doe said she told the men that she left her cane and could not walk properly without it, but they allegedly still did not allow her to proceed to her seat, and claimed there was a second incident that she was humiliated by them.

Allegedly, one of Depp‘s bodyguards suddenly grabbed the plaintiff from her behind and tightly held both of her wrists while another one attempted to wrench her iPhone from her hand; and dragged her to the upper balcony area and dropped her to the ground, causing her pants to fall off her torso and hips.

Later, a third incident was mentioned and this time a third bodyguard was allegedly involved and the complainant said she suffered severe injuries, who is suing with no specific amount of damages; with the 48-year old ‘Pirates of the Caribbean star not yet releasing an official statement on the incident.
