Johnny Depp trial: after appealing the verdict, Amber Heard makes a decision that could change everything

Having appealed the jury’s decision in her defamation lawsuit against Johnny Depp, Amber Heard has chosen to adopt a new defense strategy, surrounding herself with new legal representatives, as revealed by People.

After having lived a very tumultuous relationship with Johnny Depp for several years, Amber Heard has been prosecuted by his former companion for defamation. The star of the franchise Pirates of the Caribbean reproached his ex-wife for the publication of a forum in the columns of the washington post in 2018, in which she presented herself as a battered woman. Accusing Johnny Depp of violence against her during their marriage, Amber Heard defended herself during an extremely publicized trial in May 2022. Facing her, Johnny Depp has denied any accusation of violencearguing that it was in fact his ex-wife who was violent towards him during their relationship.

Finally, US justice has ruled in favor of Johnny Depp in this case. Indeed, the jury of the court of Fairfax, located in the State of Virginia, found Amber Heard guilty of defamation towards his former companion. She was therefore ordered to pay him several million dollars in damages.. Unhappy with the jury’s decision, the actress, best known for her role in Aquaman, chose to appeal the verdict, in order to restore his reputation tarnished by this trial, but also to present new evidence. For his part, Johnny Depp also appealed the jury’s decision, but to avoid having to pay the $2 million he owes his ex-wife.
