Johnny Depp appeals $2 million verdict in Amber Heard countersuit

Johnny Depp not done fighting her ex Amber Heard in class.

According to court documents obtained by E! News on July 22, the Pirates of Caribbean star has filed a notice of appeal seeking to overturn the $2 million verdict awarded to Heard in the couple’s defamation lawsuit.

“This was an extremely positive verdict for Mr. Depp,” Depp’s reps said in a statement to E! New. “The verdict speaks for itself, and Mr. Depp believes this is a time for both parties to move on with their lives and heal. But if Ms. Heard is determined to pursue other lawsuits by appealing the verdict, Mr. Depp is filing a concurrent appeal to ensure that the full case and all relevant legal issues are reviewed by the Court of Appeals.”

E ! News reached out to Heard’s team for comment and did not hear back.

On June 1, a Virginia jury returned a verdict in Depp and Heard’s defamation lawsuit, which lasted more than six weeks and grabbed headlines around the world.
