Johnny Depp desires overall success over Amber Heard, and he’s simply submitted an appeal attempting to get it … declaring the jury got it incorrect when it ruled in favor of his ex-wife on a single count of disparagement.
You’ll recall, Johnny was the huge winner, without a doubt, when the jury returned in their landmark trial, stating Amber had actually maligned him and needed to spend $10.35 million dollars — however it likewise ruled Amber was maligned, and granted her $2 mil.
In docs submitted Wednesday in the Virginia Court of Appeals, Johnny states the jury had incorrectly ruled in favor of Amber … when it stated among Johnny’s lawyers, Adam Waldman, maligned Amber by informing a media outlet she had actually lied while explaining a blowout battle that ended their marital relationship.
Waldman stated, “So Amber and her friends spilled a little wine and roughed the place up, got their stories straight under the direction of a lawyer and publicist, and then placed a second call to 911.”
In the appeal, Johnny makes the point that his legal representative stated that, not him, and he should not be delegated Waldman’s remarks. He likewise states Amber’s group stopped working to show Waldman made those remarks with malice … a requirement to win a libel claim.
Johnny desires the court to reverse the jury on that single count. Remember, Amber has likewise filed an appeal of the counts she lost.
