According to the actress’s lawyer, she plans to appeal the verdict of the trial.
A month and a half later, the defamation trial verdict was passed that Johnny Depp Moved against the actress Amber Heard. The judges ruled unanimously in favor of the actor. So, with the calculations determined, compensation in the amount of 8.35 million US dollars (40.2 million Brazilian reais) was determined for the hero of the novel “Pirates of the Caribbean”.
In an interview with The Today Show (NBC), attorney Elaine Charlesson Bridhoft, who represented Heard at the trial, said the actress plans to appeal the ruling. Additionally, when asked about the payment, Eileen stated that Amber does not have the ability to pay the compensation. She replied, “No, not at all.”
In addition, Breedhoft said the ruling in favor of Johnny Depp sends a “horrific message.” “It’s a setback, a major setback. […] Unless you pick up your cell phone and picture your spouse or partner hitting you, they won’t believe you.”
According to Elaine, the jury in the case was influenced by public opinion, including on social media in particular. There were strict orders that jurors could not read anything about the case outside of court. Of public sentiment against Heard in the case, Eileen said: “There’s no way they weren’t affected. It was awful. It was so uneven.” “Many things were allowed in this room that were not meant to be allowed and this left the jury confused.”
