In June, Johnny Depp emerged largely victorious in the defamation trial against his ex-wife Amber Heard. Now the actress is going against the verdict.

After the trial of her ex-husband Johnny Depp (59), US actress Amber Heard (36) is taking action against the jury’s verdict.

Heard’s attorneys moved to have the actress’ sentence overturned. This emerges from a document from Friday that the US media reported on Sunday.

After a six-week defamation trial, in which the ex-husbands accused themselves of domestic violence, the jury largely sided with Depp at the beginning of June – but also agreed with Heard on some points. She has to pay Depp more than $10 million in damages for defamation. Depp owes her $2 million for statements by his ex-lawyer that allegedly damaged Heard’s reputation, according to the jury’s decision.

At the core of the civil lawsuit filed by Depp was a 2018 comment published by the Washington Post in which Heard described himself as a victim of domestic violence. Depp was not named by her, but the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ star saw herself as a victim of false testimony and sued for defamation for $50 million in damages.

In addition to substantive arguments, Heard’s lawyers are now also accusing the court of not having checked the identity of a juror. “It is unclear whether Juror No. 15 was actually ever called to serve on a jury or was qualified to serve on the panel.”
