The images contrast with the fact that Amber cannot pay the more than 10 million dollars that the jury has imposed as compensation for defaming Johnny Depp; This was confirmed by her lawyer in an opinion column and that, in addition, she plans to appeal the sentence.

Asked if Heard was capable of paying the more than 10 million dollars in damages, the lawyer responded with a resounding “oh, definitely not.”
After three days of deliberation, the jury determined on Wednesday that the actress must pay 10 million in damages and another 5 million as a fine, although the judge of Fairfax County (Virginia, USA), Penney Azcarate, lowered the latter amount to $350,000.
In his initial lawsuit, Depp claimed $50 million for the article published in 2018 in The Washington Post and in which Heard claimed, without mentioning the actor’s name, that he was a victim of domestic abuse.
Although, in reality, Heard will not have to pay those 10 million in full, as the jury also concluded that Depp must compensate his ex-wife with 2 million for a comment by his previous lawyer that was also considered defamatory towards Heard.
“The trial became a zoo”
Regarding the sentence, the lawyer considered that it sends a “horrible” message and represents a step “back” in the attempts to eradicate domestic violence.
“What it means is that unless you take out your phone and record your partner hitting you, no one is going to believe you,” he said.
Likewise, she was emphatic in denouncing that the Fairfax County courthouse allowed “a number of things that should not have been allowed.”
“It was like the Roman Colosseum. That’s how I lived through the whole case. I was against cameras being allowed in the courtroom and I put that on the record, due to the sensitive nature of the matter. But it became a zoo,” he said. Bredehoft.
According to the lawyer, the attention of millions of people and the pressure of Depp’s fans created a caricature of Heard on social networks that ended up “demonizing” the actress and could influence the verdict of the jury.
“They went home every night. They have families. Their families use social media. We had a 10-day break because of a court conference. There’s no way they weren’t influenced by it,” he argued.
For the hypothetical appeal, the lawyer announced that they will present much of the evidence that was not admitted in this process and that was part of the similar trial that was held in London, where Depp lost another defamation case against The Sun newspaper for an article. that described the actor as a “batterer of women”.
“The court concluded that Depp committed up to 12 acts of domestic violence against Amber,” Bredehoft recalled.
