Heard will “absolutely” appeal and cannot afford to pay damages – lawyer

Amber Heard’s lawyer Elaine Bredehoft told an interview with the Today Show on Thursday that the actor “absolutely” intends to appeal, declaring that she has “some excellent grounds” to challenge the verdict.

There was so much evidence that did not come in,” she said.

Complaining that her client was “demonised” in the trial in Virginia, Bredehoft added: “A number of things were allowed in this court that should not have been allowed, and it caused the jury to be confused.”

Bredehoft also said that Heard cannot afford the damages awarded to Depp, replying “oh, no, absolutely not” when asked by host Savannah Guthrie if the Aquaman star has the funds to pay her ex-husband.
