Deadline for Amber Heard’s Appeal Approaches

Following three days of deliberations by the jury, Johnny Depp won his defamation case against ex-wife Amber Heard, who also won a partial victory in her countersuit.

In a 2018 Washington Post op-ed, Depp sued Heard for $50 million, alleging that he assaulted her. Despite the fact that she did not name him, he argues that her charges have harmed his capacity to work. She filed a $100 million counterclaim.

Heard was found to have defamed Depp on all three counts by the jury, who awarded him $10 million in compensatory damages and $5 million in punitive damages. Compensatory damages of $2 million were awarded to Heard.

Heard said she was “disappointed beyond words” and “heartbroken” in a statement, calling the verdict a “setback” for women. She has chosen to appeal the verdict, claiming that she is “unable to pay” the damages. Depp supporters have blasted celebrities who have spoken out in her defence with nasty comments.
