Amber Heard Asks Court to Toss Verdict in Johnny Depp Defamation Case

Attorneys for Amber Heard have asked the court to throw out the verdict in the defamation trial against her ex-husband Johnny Depp. Attorneys for Heard claim the damages awarded to Depp were excessive and unsupported by the evidence at the trial. Heard and Depp were both found liable in the case with $15 million in damages being awarded to Depp and only $2 million being awarded to Heard. Her lawyers also claim that Depp and his team weren’t able to demonstrate any actual reputational or financial damages as a result of Heard’s Washington Post op-ed at the center of the case.
