Johnny Depp’s Lawyer Says Actor Would’ve Moved On From Defamation Case If Amber Heard Hadn’t Filed Appeal

Earlier this week, Depp’s ex-wife appealed against the settlement amount of $10.35 million, which she is supposed to award Depp as per the verdict declared on June 1 in their defamation trial.

Recently, Camille, who gained massive media attention during the trial of this high-profile case, had a conversation with Gayle King, who is the host of CBS Morning, for an interview and talked regarding the persisting legal battle which involves Amber Heard and Johnny Depp.

When the host questioned her, “Is it safe to say if she (Amber) hadn’t appealed (the outcome of the defamation trial), you all would not have appealed either? You would have moved on?” She answered, “Yes, that is a very fair statement,” adding, “We have to protect our client’s interests.”

She said that Johnny’s legal panel will ‘protect’ him as the legal battle is still on. When she was asked ‘how do you heal’ when ‘both sides are still in court arguing’, Camille responded with “It’s a pretty standard legal procedure. We hope the court will uphold the verdict, which we think was the right verdict, and allow both parties to move on.”
