Amber Heard’s Lawyers Want Johnny Depp’s Winning Verdict Tossed

According to them, the court need to throw out the verdict including the $10.35 million in damages awarded to the Pirates of the Caribbean star by the jury as it was not supported by sufficient evidence.

The team alleged Depp’s $50 million defamation lawsuit against her was rooted in a 2019 Washington Post op-ed she had written where she opens up about being in an abusive relationship but doesn’t mention Depp by name.

The 43-page document submitted to the Fairfax County Circuit Court Friday also calls “to investigate improper juror service”.

It claimed that public information indicates that a juror who served during the trial was born in 1970, despite court officials listing their birth year as 1945.

The filing argues Depp “proceeded solely on a defamation by implication theory, abandoning any claims that Ms. Heard’s statements were actually false.”

Heard’s lawyers argued that the Jury awarding Depp $10.35 million in damages is “inconsistent and irreconcilable” as both her and Depp had defamed one another.

“Mr. Depp presented no evidence that Ms. Heard did not believe she was abused.Therefore, Mr. Depp did not meet the legal requirements for actual malice, and the verdict should be set aside.” the filing reads, per Variety.
