Amber Heard Plans to Appeal After Johnny Depp Wins Defamation Case


Johnny Depp vs. Amber Heard Trial: Verdict REVEALED

Amber Heard is not done with Johnny Depp yet.

On June 2, Elaine Bredehoft, an attorney who represented the Aquaman actress during the defamation trial, shared that her client “absolutely” plans to appeal the June 1 verdict that ruled Heard was liable for defaming her ex-husband

“She has some excellent grounds for it,” Bredehoft said on Today. “We even had tried to get the UK judgment in to dismiss his case because he already had his shot. And that’s one of the issues. But also, a number of the evidentiary issues, there was so much evidence that did not come in.”

After 13 hours of deliberations, a Virginia jury sided with Depp in his $50 million defamation lawsuit, which alleged the actress accused him of abuse in a Washington Post op-ed. The Pirates of the Caribbean actor was awarded $10 million in compensatory damages and $5 million in punitive damages. However, Fairfax County Circuit Court Judge Penney Azcarate later reduced the punitive damages to $350,000, which is the state’s statutory cap or legal limit, making Depp’s total damages $10.4 million.
