After Amber Heard appealed the jury's decision in the defamation suit filed by ex-husband Johnny Depp, the actor decided to do the same.
Last Friday, 22, Depp filed an appeal to overturn the $2 million he was ordered to pay to Heard, while the actress must pay $10 million.
"Plaintiff and Defendant John C. Depp II through his attorney, appeal to the Virginia Court of Appeals from
all adverse rulings and the final judgment order of this circuit court issued on June 24, 2022," the documents filed with the court in Fairfax, Virginia say.
It was a six-week trial that led to Depp's victory in the defamation suit against his ex-wife Fairfax
County Court in Virginia, USA. After the verdict, Amber Heard appealed the jury's decision claiming
that the identity of one of the jurors did not match the one presented at the trial.
Another remark is that the compensation amounts would be excessive. The appeals were ignored by the judge.
