Amber Heard won't settle with Johnny Depp, will appeal verdict
Lawyers for Johnny Depp and Amber Heard met again in court on Friday and had
one last chance to settle before the judge finalized the June 1 verdict.
After a wild six-week trial, the jury found that each star defamed the other but weighed heavily in Depp's favor.
Pirates of the Caribbean
star is owed $10.35 million in damages while Heard was awarded $2 million.
It sounds like Heard will appeal the verdict.
A spokesperson for the
actress issued the following statement
referenced the Jan 6. 2021 insurrection hearings: "As stated in yesterday's congressional hearings,
you don't ask for a pardon if you are innocent. And, you don't decline to appeal if you know you are right."
Depp's attorney, Ben Chew, hinted they would be open to settling if Heard declined to appeal.
