Amber Heard’s Attorney Speaks Out About the Verdict In Favor of Johnny Depp

The verdict is in, and Johnny Depp has won. Amber Heard has been ordered to pay her ex over $10 million dollars.

Heard and Depp both testified in the court case. They both claimed that the other person was the abuser. Who was right? Who would the jury believe?

Apparently the jury believed Depp, and Heard is not happy about it. She intends to appeal the case, and according to her attorney, Elaine Bredehoft, she has grounds to do that. According to Bredehoft, Heard also can’t afford to pay Depp the money the court says she owes him.

Bredehoft sat down with TODAY’s Savannah Guthrie to talk about the court case, the jury’s decision and how her client is taking the news. Bredehoft also commented on why she thinks the jury made the decision they did, and why she thinks the decision would have been different if circumstances were different. Watch the video below to learn more about Bredehoft’s reaction to the jury’s decision.

After the verdict was read, Heard released a statement where she explained her thoughts. She stated, “It is a setback. It sets back the clock to a time when a woman who spoke up and spoke out could be publicly shamed and humiliated. It sets back the idea that violence against women is to be taken seriously.”

While Heard feels that the verdict hurt women, Depp is happy with the verdict. In a statement, he explained, “the jury gave me my life back. I am truly humbled.”

Are you surprised that the jury found in favor of Depp? Do you agree with Heard’s attorney that the jury was influenced by social media? Do you think Heard will be successful in her attempt to appeal? Do you agree with Heard that the jury’s decision is “a setback” for women?
