Depp and Heard’s defamation trial took place between April and June, after Depp sued his ex-wife for three statements she wrote in an article in the The Washington Post.
The verdict was announced on June 1, and Heard lost most of the case, having to pay $10 million in damages to the actor; the actress, however, won one of the lawsuits, receiving $2 million.
Recently, Heard said he hired a new team of lawyers in hopes of getting a review of the case. Elaine BredehoftAmber’s former attorney, said in a statement that it was the perfect time to “pass the baton” of the case leadership.
“We welcome the opportunity to represent Ms. Heard on this appeal for being an important case for the First Amendment implications for the country.”they said David Axelrod e Jay Ward Brownthe new lawyers of Heard.
Amber’s spokesperson said: “When it comes to protecting the fundamental right to free speech, we look at the jury’s decision – to paraphrase a famous quote – not ‘as the beginning of the end, but just the end of the beginning. A different court warrants different representation, especially since so much new evidence is emerging now.”.
