Amber Heard wants to overturn the verdict in the case with Johnny Depp
A team of lawyers for 36-year-old American actress Amber Heard demanded that the court verdict with 59-year-old actor Johnny Depp be canceled in a libel case. It is reported by DailyMail.
Representatives of the artist said that the evidence provided by the defense of the Pirates of the Caribbean star was not enough, and demanded that the court decision be canceled. “No real evidence was presented – only circumstantial. There is not even a reason to doubt that the statements of Ms. Heard were actually false, ”the lawyers for the Aquaman star emphasized.
In addition, lawyers stated that one of the jurors did not pass the test and could not be admitted to the trial, which may indicate the invalidity of the jury’s verdict.
“We are confident that the data provided about the juror is false. The year of birth of the man in the documents is listed as 1945, although he was born in 1970. This inconsistency makes us wonder if this person was actually a juror and whether he received a subpoena, ”the documents submitted to the court say.
Johnny Depp’s defense team responded to the Aquaman star’s lawyers’ demand for a retrial in the following way: “We quite expected this. Now this whole process will drag on even more. But this is unlikely to change the picture as a whole.”
Earlier it became known that Depp won the lawsuit against Hurd. The actress was found guilty of defamation and ordered to pay her ex-husband $ 15 million.
Later, Johnny Depp’s side announced the actor’s intention to forgive Amber Heard’s debt, emphasizing that the artist’s main goal in the trial was to restore his own reputation, and not to get money from his ex-wife, whom the Pirates of the Caribbean star accused of defamation.
