After the legal clash that Johnny Depp and Amber Heard gave each other for various charges of defamation and domestic violence, the game has only just begun, as both want to get to the last consequences of their fateful relationship. As you may know, the final verdict of this media event was much more favorable for the Pirates of the Caribbean star, who only lost one of the three complaints made by his ex-wife, for which he must pay her two million dollars.
On the other hand, the person who played the superheroine Mera in the film Aquaman was not so lucky, as she lost the three defamation lawsuits filed by her ex, for which she must pay ten million dollars. However, the lawsuit does not end here, as the protagonists of Diary of a Seducer do not give up and have appealed their respective sentences.
The first to go in search of a total victory was the Hollywood Vampires guitarist, who a month ago filed an appeal alleging that there was an error in the jury’s verdict. In a document filed in the Court of Appeals of Virginia, United States, the actor pointed out that the person responsible for defaming Heard was her defense attorney, Adam Waldman, who, according to Depp, should be held responsible for the charge.

After this fact, Amber did not stand idly by, as she also had been preparing an official document, consisting of 68 pages, to file the corresponding appeal to revoke the sentence issued on June 1st of this year. Her main argument revolves around the limitations imposed by Judge Penney Azcarate, who did not allow the jury to analyze several abuse allegations made by the actress against her then husband.
“She improperly prevented the jury from considering several instances in which Heard reported Depp’s abuse to a medical professional. If not reversed, the trial court’s exclusion of contemporaneous reports of domestic abuse to medical professionals will make it more difficult for other abuse victims to prove allegations of abuse and will likely deter them from coming forward.
With this, the 36-year-old model also seeks to redeem herself and focus on the various wrongs committed against her during the famous trial, so she would be willing to step on the podium again, but this time she requests that the ruling be carried out in California, United States, the state where the couple lived, and not in Virginia, she said she will not give up until she reaches another trial.
