Amber Heard’s team call to scrap Johnny Depp verdict or start new trial after bombshell defamation case
’s lawyers have
appealed the decision in her recent defamation trial
, asking to throw out the ruling or begin a new case.
The Aquaman actress, 36, was sued by ex-husband Johnny Depp over an
op-ed she wrote for the Washington Post in 2018, in which she discussed
her experiences with domestic abuse without naming him.
After the bombshell six-week court hearing, a jury found in favor of the
Pirates of the Caribbean actor, awarding him $10million of the $50m he sought.
Heard won one count of her $100m countersuit, and was given damages of
$2m, meaning she has to pay the 59-year-old $8m.
Her team has now submitted a lengthy filing in a court in Virginia, arguing against their findings.
