Judge Tells Amber Heard She Can Appeal But It Will Cost Her

Amber Heard Expert Witnesses Johnny Depp Trial

Amber Heard has been told by the judge that she can appeal the Johnny Depp defamation trial decision, but it will cost her a lot of money.

As I’m sure you know already, the jury in Fairfax, Virginia ended up awarding Johnny Depp $8.35 million in total after a pretty explosive and public trial.

The judge this Friday officially entered the judgment into the court record, and there’s a string attached if Amber decides to go forward with an appeal.

The judge revealed that Amber could appeal if she wished, however, she must post a bond in the full amount of Johnny’s judgement plus 6 per cent.

So that would add an extra $621k to Amber’s overall costs.

It seems as though this extra 6 percent is an interest penalty for a delay in collection.

Amber hasn’t stayed silent about this.

She ended up releasing a statement in which she invoked – rather incredibly – the January 6th House hearings!

Here’s what she had to say in her statement:

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.

I’m actually rather surprised that she did that, but nothing should surprise me in this whole saga anymore.
