Johnny Depp and Amber Heard’s Lawyers Are Meeting Back in Court. Here’s Why.

Where’s the guy that said “Leave Britney Alone”? I swear we need someone to do this for Johnny…

Can’t Amber Heard just leave Johnny alone?!

A few weeks ago, Johnny Depp had a massive victory in court when the jury provided a verdict in his defamation case ruling mostly in favor of Johnny.

The jury granted Johnny $10 million in compensatory damages and $5 million in punitive damages, the judge changed the amount to the Virginia cap on punitive damages of $350,000.

Meaning a total of $10,350,000 was awarded to Johnny.

Amber Heard was provided $2 million in her countersuit to Johnny.

Amber Heard’s attorney says she cannot pay Johnny, she is also saying they (as in her and Amber) plan to appeal the verdict.

But now, attorneys for Johnny Depp and Amber Heard are once again meeting in court.

The reason?

The meeting will determine whether or not the lawsuits and court battles will end once and for all or if they will continue further damaging both actors financially and in the public eye.

While the initial defamation case mostly ruled in favor of Johnny Depp, Judge Penney Azcarate, the judge overseeing the trial, didn’t enter the jury verdict into the docket.

Friday, June 24, 2022 will be the day she does that unless the two parties agreed to a settlement.

According to Yahoo:

At the 11 a.m. hearing Friday, Azcarate may also accept oral arguments from each side over the jury verdict. Depp and Heard aren’t personally required to be in the courtroom during the hearing, Samy Abdallah, Azcarate’s clerk, told Insider.

If the two don’t agree to a settlement, and Azcarate enters the jury verdict, then the case will move to the Court of Appeals of Virginia after 21 days, Abdallah told Insider. At that point, the parties would have 30 days to file a notice of appeal.

My thoughts are – Johnny should just say he wants nothing from Amber monetary wise since he already won and the world saw that.

Then what could Amber possibly want to sue Johnny for? She’s already done enough damage.

Time will tell. The attorneys are expected to meet tomorrow in court.
