Amber Heard has officially appealed the defamation case she lost against Johnny Depp. Recently, the court ruled in favor of Johnny Depp in his defamation case against his ex-wife, Amber Heard. The ruling was the latest development in a years-long legal battle that has played out in the public eye. The case centers on an article that Heard published in The Washington Post in 2018, in which she described herself as a domestic abuse victim. Depp denied the claims and sued Heard for libel.

In its ruling, the court found that Heard had not proven that her claims were true. The ruling was a victory for Depp, but it also raised questions about the role of domestic abuse survivors in the court of public opinion. For many survivors, the case highlights the difficulties of speaking out about abuse and the ways in which their stories can be twisted and used against them.

The actress has officially filed in court to appeal the jury’s verdict which found her guilty of defaming Johnny Depp and denting his career after she wrote an op-ed about being a victim of domestic abuse.
“We believe the court made errors that prevented a just and fair verdict consistent with the First Amendment,” read a statement given to HollywoodLife from Amber’s spokesperson. “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.”

The Attorney of Amber Heard Called It Quits With Her Lawsuit Against Johnny Depp!
Jun 25, 2020 [
The lawyers of actress Amber Heard have finally quit the case she had filed against Johnny Depp.
Depp’s turbulent defamation lawsuit against his former spouse Amber Heard is now experiencing a halt as the attorney of the Aquaman actress has given up. Earlier she was represented by a group of legal advisors headed by Robert Kaplan who has John Quinn, Julie Fink, Davida Brook, and so on.
But sadly they all quit with the source stating that the actress went for a local attorney post-Robert and his team stating that: “travel and logistics” are “more costly in light of the pandemic.”
Further, this is not new to her as there had been a dispute between Depp and Amber Heard in the past that broke the headlines. At the beginning of the year, it was reported that if the actress is found guilty then she might be behind bars for faking proof against her former husband.
On the contrary, Depp’s lawyer Adam Waldman said he wishes to find the actual reason for the legal team’s exit from Amber’s side.
It was said: “Ms. Heard’s lawyers, one of whom co-founded the #TimesUp Legal Defense Fund, have now apparently unhitched from Ms. Heard’s long-disproven frauds. We intend to discover why.”
Amber Heard asks Johnny Depp to Seek Mental Health!
Nov 11, 2019 [
After a tug of war between Amber Heard and her former spouse, Johnny Depp has still not calmed down. The recent buzz is that the actress has asked Depp to check his mental health as per the latest court documents.
According to the sources, the most enticing woman has requested to send Depp for Independent Mental Evaluation or IME as she thinks that the Pirates actor’s addiction to drugs and overdosage of medication is the reason for the abuse.
Further, the court’s verdict stated: “Johnny’s relationship with reality oscillates, depending upon his interaction with alcohol and drugs.” “As Johnny’s paranoia, delusions, and aggression increased throughout our relationship, so has my awareness of his continued substance abuse.”
Johnny had earlier sued a $50 million case in Virginia in 2018 post his split from Amber Heard in 2016 May.The statement from Heard stated that she went through domestic abuse by Depp.
To this, Johnny’s lawyer replied on the IME that it is utter nonsense to go in for a test now as the pair’s past is still unanswered. He went on to say: “This is a defamation case in which Mr. Depp does not allege that he suffers from any mental disorder or condition and thus Mr. Depp’s mental condition is not ‘in controversy’ nor does good cause exist under the rule for an IME of Mr. Depp.”
In addition, he also said “It is a preposterous notion that an IME now would shed light on Mr. Depp’s mental state at the time of Ms. Heard’s abuse hoax back in 2016. Ms. Heard’s effort treads a well-worn path of victim blaming using the pretext of mental health. By Ms. Heard’s tortured credibility logic, current IMEs would also be warranted for all the dozens of eyewitnesses who have attested to the various facets of the hoaxes they witnessed years ago.”
