Amber heard legal team members

Amber Heard the legal team

Attorneys Benjamin Chew and Camille Vasquez for Johnny Depp have responded to Amber Heard’s statement announcing the resolution of her legal dispute with her ex-husband.

AFP reports that Johnny Depp and Amber Heard have reached a settlement in their contentious defamation lawsuit, in which the actress agreed to pay her ex-husband $1 million in retaliation for allegations that he physically mistreated her.

Heard announced on Instagram that she was giving up her appeal against the jury’s $10 million verdict because she “just cannot go through” another trial.

“I have made a very tough choice to settle the slander action,” she added after giving it much thought.

A Virginia jury convicted Depp and the other defendants guilty in a lawsuit that involved countersuits.
