Amber Heard’s team call to scrap Johnny Depp verdict or start new trial after bombshell defamation case

Amber Heard’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.
