Johnny Depp v. Amber Heard: A Timeline

In June, a jury found Heard guilty of defamation against Depp. The decision resulted in a $10.3 million award for Depp. With a verdict additionally awarding Heard compensatory damages of $2 million, she is on the hook for $8.3 million.

Afterward, Heard’s attorneys claimed she can’t afford to pay that amount.

Amber Heard has new lawyers for her appeal after a jury found her guilty of defamation against ex-husband Johnny Depp.

Heard recently hired Ballard Spahr attorneys David Axelrod and Jay Ward Brown as her appellate counsel, Good Morning America reported Monday.

Axelrod and Brown issued a joint statement after Amber Heard hired them for the appeal, according to GMA.

“We welcome the opportunity to represent Ms. Heard in this appeal as it is a case with important First Amendment implications for every American,” they reportedly said. “We’re confident the appellate court will apply the law properly without deference to popularity.”

Ben Rottenborn of Woods Rogers Vandeventer Black and Elaine Charlson Bredehoft of Charlson Bredehoft Cohen Brown & Nadelhaft represented Heard during the initial trial. Rottenborn is staying on as co-counsel but Bredehoft is leaving, GMA said.
