Amber Heard Requests Another Trial Against Ex-husband


July 04, (THEWILL) – American actress, Amber Heard, has requested that the winning verdict from the defamation suit filed against her by her former lover, Johnny Depp, should be dismissed.

Depp’s suit against the actress went to a trial on April 11 and ended on June 1 with the actor winning the suit.

Heard had revealed her disappointment with the verdict, which she said was “a setback for women”.

In a 43-page memo filed before a Virginia court last Friday, the actress’ lawyers argued that the ruling had poor legal reasoning, an improperly vetted jury, and excessively awarded damages.

Depp had sued Heard for defamation, accusing her of “name-calling” that often escalated into physical violence.

The actor said a 2018 domestic violence piece written by Heard in The Washington Post implied he was abusive.

Heard didn’t name the actor but Depp’s lawyers said her allegations made it difficult for him to get acting roles.

The latest filing by the actress demanded that the court either dismiss the verdict or re-try the case.

Heard further demanded that the court reinvestigate the case and take the necessary action afterward.

“Ms. Heard respectfully requests this court to set aside the jury verdict in favor of Mr. Depp and against Ms. Heard in its entirety, dismiss the complaint, or in the alternative, order a new trial,” a memo by her lawyer read.

“Ms. Heard further requests this court to investigate potential improper juror service and take appropriate action warranted by the results of the investigation.”
