Today I am going to write about celebrity news update today, related to Amber Heard and Johnny Depp. One day after the actress filed her own appeal against her ex-husband, Johnny Depp filed a notice of appeal for the $2 million awarded to Amber Heard.
In his complaint, Depp claims that he is contesting “all adverse findings and from the final judgement order.” One of Depp’s close associates told ABC News that the verdict was “overwhelmingly favourable for Mr. Depp.”
The verdict speaks for itself, and Mr. Depp believes that it is now appropriate for both parties to resume living their lives and making amends.
However, Mr Depp is filing a concurrent appeal to make sure that the entire record and all pertinent legal concerns are taken into account by the Court of Appeal in the event that Ms Amber Heard is determined to continue the dispute by appealing the judgement.
After Amber Heard formally appealed the case on Thursday, the action was taken.
After a jury found in favour of Depp in the case and ordered the “Aquaman” actress to pay Depp more than $10 million in damages, she filed her appeal over two months later.
We believe the court erred and was unable to provide a just and reasonable decision in compliance with the first amendment.
According to a statement sent by Heard’s agent on Thursday. We are appealing the judgement as a result. There are things we can do to ensure that justice and fairness are respected, even though we are aware that today’s filing may ignite Twitter.
In response to Heard’s appeal, a representative for Depp said in a statement on Thursday, “The jury deliberated for six weeks, Amber Heard the substantial evidence, and reached a unanimous decision that the defendant had repeatedly slandered Mr. Depp. We continue to believe that our argument is strong and that this judgement will stand.”
A week after Judge Penney Azcarate, who oversaw the six-week trial in Fairfax County, Virginia, denied Heard’s request for a new trial, Amber Heard filed an appeal, which was highly anticipated.
In a motion, Heard’s attorneys claimed that one of the jury members selected for the trial was not the same individual who was served with the jury summons.
The person identified as having the birth year of 1945 on the summons also has the same last name and residence as the juror who served and had the birth year of 1970. Legal counsel for Depp had deemed the allegations to be “frivolous.”
After Amber Heard wrote an opinion piece about domestic violence for The Washington Post in 2018, the “Pirates of the Caribbean” actor filed a defamation lawsuit against Amber Heard in March 2019.
Despite the fact that Depp was not specifically named in the piece, his attorneys claimed it was defamatory since it alluded to abuse claims made by the woman as she filed for divorce from him in 2016 after almost two years of marriage.
Heard was found guilty of three counts of slander by a unanimous verdict from the jury, and Depp was awarded $10.35 million in compensation.
Depp was held responsible for one defamation suit and was had to compensate Heard with $2 million.
Although the jury found that “they were both abusive to each other,” Amber Heard’s side was unable to establish that Depp’s abuse was physical.
They started fighting like husband and wife. they were shouting at one another back and forth
In an exclusive interview with “GMA,” one of the seven jurors revealed. That doesn’t make either of them right or wrong in my perspective. That’s what you do, I suppose, when you’re in conflict.
However, there wasn’t enough or any proof to substantiate what she was starting to make it stand up to scrutiny.
“Anything that occurred outside the courtroom was not taken into account. We simply looked at the data,” he continued. These were quite serious allegations, and there was a lot of money on the line. We weren’t handling it carelessly, therefore.
