Amber Heard files appeal in defamation case with Johnny Depp

Amber Heard’s attorney said they believe the court made errors which prevented a just and fair verdict consistent with the First Amendment.

In a TMZ report Heard’s attorneys said “we are therefore appealing the verdict. While we realize today’s filing will ignite the Twitter bonfires, there are steps we need to take to ensure both fairness and justice.”

Amber Heard is officially appealing the verdict in her defamation case with Johnny Depp.
Amber’s attorneys filed the necessary documents Thursday in Fairfax County, Virginia to appeal the $10.3M judgement a jury ordered her last month to pay her ex-husband.

The jury also ruled Johnny had to pay Amber $2 million, so effectively she owes him $8.3 mil in damages — but she had vowed since the day of the verdict that she would appeal.
