Actress Amber Heard appeals Virginia court ruling yesterday in Johnny Depp conflict. According to one of her attorneys, Johnny Depp‘s legal team has kept a “huge amount of evidence” out of the case. She hopes that this material will be admitted on appeal.
Heard wrote in an opinion article in The Washington Post in 2018 that she was a victim of domestic violence. She didn’t mention a name, but it was soon clear that she was accusing Depp, whom she separated from in 2015. Depp took her to court and demanded $50 million. The Virginia court ruled in Depp‘s favor yesterday: Heard must pay him $10 million, he her 2 million dollars.
Heard’s lawyer points out that the evidence she refers to was previously admitted in the United Kingdom. That was in a case that Depp filed against The Sun in 2020. This tabloid had called Depp a woman abuser. Depp lost that case because the judge ruled Depp‘s violence against Heard was largely proven.
According to Heard’s lawyer, the camp Depp learned from that case. “They thought, we need to demonize Amber and keep this evidence out of the case.” The jury in Virginia court further calls them “confused”.
