25 Jul APPEALS FILED IN THE AMBER HEARD AND JOHNNY DEPP DEFAMATION CASE
Two weeks after Amber Heard was denied a request for a re-trial in the defamation case brought against her, she filed an appeal against the verdict in which she was ordered to pay her ex-husband over $10 million. Johnny Depp is also seeking overturn the decision made against him, and has appealed the $2 million award handed to Heard.
At the beginning of June, a jury found that Heard had defamed Depp in an op-ed published in The Washington Post. Finding that an attorney for Depp defamed Heard, Heard was awarded $2 million in damages.
Appealing the verdict made against her, Heard contends that the court made errors which ‘prevented a just and fair verdict’. Filing an appeal on Friday, Depp is seeking an appeal from all adverse rulings and from the final judgment order in an attempt to claw back the award made against him.
