In Virginia court on Friday, Heard’s legal team argued the ruling had a number of issues, including poor legal reasoning, an improperly vetted jury, and excessively awarded damages.
Ms. Heard’s attorney Elaine Bredehoft said the case rests on flawed legal logic, arguing Mr. Depp’s claims “proceeded solely on a defamation by implication theory, abandoning any claims that Ms. Heard’s statements were actually false”.
Ms. Bredehoft also argued that Mr. Depp’s legal team said it would focus on the period after the op-ed came out, but instead widened to encompass events and statements from back in 2016.
