Johnny Depp won the defamation case against Amber Heard after a highly publicized, six-week defamation trial, But this is not over yet. Depp wants a second trial for his $2 Million.
Heard was found guilty of three counts of slander and was compelled to pay her ex-husband $15 million in the Depp v. Heard verdict. Depp was also found liable on one count of Heard’s countersuit and had to pay $2 million in damages. Depp’s appeal of the amount of money he owes Heard was the most recent development in this case.
Amber Heard was ordered to pay Johnny $10.35 million in damages for the slander lawsuit. The Virginia jury reached a verdict to award her $2 million in a countersuit claim during the same trial.
Johnny Depp’s legal team argued that he shouldn’t be held responsible for paying the $2 million that the court awarded in June in a 44-page appellate brief submitted on Wednesday.
The documents assert that Heard’s countersuit is “fatally flawed” and that the court “should have granted Mr. Depp’s plea for summary judgment,” according to Law & Crime. In addition, three justifications were supplied in brief, starting with these words.
Amber Heard has not spoken anything about this matter, Nor has she paid her original $10.5 Million to Depp. A few months back, she was seen hiding in a small town in Spain, according to TMZ. A Few days ago, she also deleted her Twitter account after Elon Musk, who she dated when she was in a relationship with Depp, bought Twitter for $44 Billion.
