Johnny Depp and Amber Heard in cars outside the courtroom during Depp v Heard trial



One of the big reasons that Johnny Depp and Amber Heard were the two most searched celebrities in 2022 was because their defamation trial got a ridiculous amount of media attention. The verdict was reached on June 1, with Depp being awarded $10 million in compensatory damages and $5 million in punitive damages (later reduced to $350,000), and Heard being awarded $2 million in compensatory damages. Half a year after that legal event wrapped up, apparently pieces are moving into place for another Depp and Heard trial to potentially move forward.

In early November, Johnny Depp’s legal team filed an appeal stating that the Pirates of the Caribbean star shouldn’t have to pay the $2 million from his end. Amber Heard’s legal team has now filed their own brief in the Virginia courts as of November 23. You can read over the appeal provided by Deadline in its entirety for yourself, but to summarize, the brief from Heard’s lawyers argues that Judge Penney Azcarate improperly instructing the jury in the Fairfax County, Virginia trial earlier this year that ended with Depp coming out as close to a “winner” as one can be deemed. The judge was also criticized in the brief for “excluding highly probative evidence and by admitting irrelevant and prejudicial evidence.”
