Amber Heard demands new trial, claims verdict in Johnny Depp case is tossed
Amber Heard’s legal teams filed an official motion in court on Friday that the
verdict in her blockbuster case against Johnny Depp is thrown out.
Heard’s team filed a 43-page memorandum arguing that the final ruling in the
bombshell case was "inconsistent and irreconcilable” while demanding the case should be re-tried.
"Mr Depp presented no evidence that Ms. Heard did not believe she was abused,” the attorneys wrote.
"Therefore, Mr. Depp did not meet the legal requirements for actual malice, and the verdict should be set aside."
Heard’s attorney Elaine Bredehoft said the pirates of the Caribbean star’s team
rested the case "solely on a defamation by implication theory" while rejecting "any
claims that Ms. Heard’s statements were actually false".
