Amber Heard has officially filed to appeal her defamation case against Johnny Depp.
According to local media reports, lawyers representing the 36-year-old celeb were recently spotted filing a notice in the form of an appeal against the verdict in Fairfax County.
The court records were recently obtained by the media outlet Daily Mail, which was the first to break the news.
The news comes just a week after the actress was seen being denied a request by the judge for a new trial.
Last month, the celeb was ordered by the court to pay a staggering amount worth $10.35 million as a part of defamation damages to her former husband Johnny Depp. That was after the jury declared her guilty of defaming Depp for an opinion piece that was released by her in the Washington Post, published in the year 2018.
The 59-year-old was awarded a staggering $15 million in total, where 10 million came from compensatory damages. But it was soon observed how the judge of the trial capped a staggering $350,000. Therefore, that left Depp with $8.35 million in total.
Meanwhile, Amber Heard was seen winning only one of her three countersuit claims and that was related to statements regarding Depp’s lawyers, who suggested the actress and her pals had reportedly trashed their home before they made a call to the cops.
But for that, Amber Heard was only provided with $2 million as a part of compensatory damages, even though she was seeking $100 million for compensation and zero for punitive.
Johnny Depp’s legal team has trashed all of the claims made by the actress and her legal side related to how the trial was unfair and also related to how one member of the jury didn’t deserve a spot because his court documents didn’t match.
But Amber Heard is again insisting that it was not fair and these things need to be taken into account, hence her side isn’t planning on backing down just yet.
