Amber Heard Officially on the Hook for $10.35 Million After Judgment Filed

After Johnny Depp’s defamation claim against her was successful, Amber Heard is now legally liable for $10.35 million. According to a written ruling filed on Friday, if she wishes to appeal, she must post bail for that amount plus interest. After a six-week trial in Fairfax, Virginia, a jury found that Amber Heard defamed him by referring to herself as a domestic abuse victim in a Washington Post op-ed, awarding him $10 million in compensatory damages and $5 million in punitive damages.

In compliance with Virginia law, the punitive damages were reduced to $350,000, resulting in a final judgment of $10.35 million. The jury awarded Heard $2 million in compensatory damages in her suit, ruling that Depp had defamed her through statements made to the public by his attorney, Adam Waldman.

Broderick Dunn, a Virginia civil attorney, said this wasn’t out of the ordinary. “It is typical practice to require the non-prevailing party to post a bond for the judgment amount in order to appeal the matter,” Dunn told. “They don’t have to pay the full amount, but a percentage of the amount in order to obtain a bond a concept similar to bail in criminal court.”

Johnny Depp’s defamation trial against Amber Heard ended with a decision on June 1 in Fairfax County Circuit Court in Virginia. In a statement, a spokesperson for the “Aquaman” actress mentioned the Jan. 6 House hearings. “As stated in yesterday’s congressional hearings, you don’t ask for a pardon if you are innocent. And you don’t decline to appeal if you know you are right,” the spokesperson said.

A 30-day appeals period has been granted to Heard. Last week, Heard was photographed shopping at TJ Maxx in the Hamptons, and according to sources, she’s in the process of writing a tell-all book. For more such updates do follow us only on Lee Daily
