Amber Heard Will Reportedly Argue Multiple Points In Her Appeal Against Johnny Depp
According to a recent report, Amber Heard will be arguing 16 points in her appeal against Depp, which will include complaints about not being able to present her medical records in a law court.
Amber Heard Condemns Court’s Decision To Allow Depp To Testify About Her Failure To Donate Her $7 Million Settlement To Charity The defamation trial that was the talk of the town a few months ago is going to start all over again as Amber Heard has appealed the case and intends to argue 16 different points with the court.
Documents filed at the Virginia Court of Appeals show that the 36-year-old – who currently owes Depp the eye watering amount of $18.5 million in damages – is not happy that medical records weren’t lodged as part of the evidence.

Her 16-point legal paper also points out that the court “erred” by not allowing into evidence the fact that Johnny Depp had already lost a similar defamation trial against Heard in the United Kingdom, along with his statements that followed the loss.
Another issue Heard’s team had with the court was that they allowed Depp’s team to testify about her false claim that she had donated $7 million to the American Civil Liberties Union using her settlement from her ex-husband Johnny Depp.
She argued that the court shouldn’t have allowed Depp to even suggest that she didn’t come through on her promise to donate the money she received from him, which Depp accused her of making just to sway the judge.
She also explained that she made those statements before she penned her Washington Post op-ed about surviving sexual violence.
In the filing, she claimed that the six-week trial lacked “clear and convincing evidence”, which is needed to prove that she truly wrote that op-ed out of malice.

Amber Heard’s – Appeal Document Accuses the Jury of Erring
Depp was awarded $16.4 to $25.4 million in compensatory damages and $8.5 million in punitive damages, but the judge later capped the damages at $596,000, leaving him with a total of $14.3 million.
The “Aquaman” actress’ appeal document says: “The trial court erred in denying the motion to set aside the jury’s verdict with regard to:
Depp’s failure to prove that the allegedly defamatory statements in the challenged op-ed each conveyed a defamatory meaning about him by implication and that any such implication was both designed and intended by Ms. Heard.”
