Amber Heard appealed the Johnny Depp defamation verdict, demanding a reversal or new trial and saying the outcome has a “chilling effect” on women speaking out.
In a Nov. 23 Virginia Court of Appeals filing obtained by PEOPLE, Heard, 36, and her new lawyers questioned the June 1 verdict, as well as why the trial was allowed to take place in Virginia instead of California. (Depp, 59, sued ex-wife Heard over her 2018 Washington Post op-ed that didn’t mention him by name, and the Post’s servers are located in Virginia.)
