Johnny Depp Trial: Amber Heard to Appeal $10M Judgment in Depp Defamation Case

Share This:-

Johnny Depp Trial: On Thursday, Amber Heard informed a Virginia Court that she will appeal a $10.35 million judgment she was ordered to pay ex-husband Johnny Depp during a high-profile defamation trial that revealed the inner workings of their troubled marriage.

The lawyers of Amber Heard filed a notice of appeal in Fairfax County Circuit Court, where a six-week trial featured riveting testimony from both Heard and Depp. The document informs the Virginia Court of Appeals that Heard intends to appeal the verdict, as well as the judge’s ruling after the verdict, including denying Heard’s request to set aside the verdict and dismiss the case or order a new trial.

“We believe the court made errors that prevented a just and fair verdict consistent with the First Amendment. We are therefore appealing the verdict,” a spokesperson for Heard said in a statement. “While we realize today’s filing will ignite the Twitter bonfires, there are steps we need to take to ensure both fairness and justice.”

The jury ordered Depp to pay $10 million in compensatory damages and $5 million in punitive damages. Punitive damages have been reduced to $350,000 under a state cap. The jury awarded Heard $2 million for his counterclaim.

Much of the testimony during the six-week trial focused on Heard’s claims that she was molested by Depp at least a dozen times. Johnny Depp insisted that he never hurt Amber Heard and that she was the abuser. 

“The jury listened to the extensive evidence presented during the six-week trial and came to a clear and unanimous verdict that the defendant herself defamed Mr. Depp in multiple instances,” a spokesperson for Depp said in a statement. “We remain confident in our case and that this verdict will stand.”
