Amber Heard's attorneys have requested that the $10.35 million decision against her in the defamation case brought by her ex-husband Johnny Depp be set aside by the judge.

Amber Heard's counsel argued that the evidence was insufficient to support the $10 million decision in favour of her ex-husband, Johnny Depp.

"Instead, the evidence overwhelmingly supported Ms. Heard believed she was the victim of abuse at the hands of Mr. Depp,"- In their motion, Heard's attorneys state.

Additionally, Heard's attorneys request that the judge look into "possible wrongful jury service."

The defence team for Ms. Heard argued that a memorandum defending the award, which totaled more than $10 million, was insufficient.

A civil jury of seven individuals concluded in a split verdict last month that Ms. Heard had slandered Mr. Depp in the op-ed.

The court ruled that Ms. Heard must provide Mr. Depp $15 million in punitive and compensatory damages.

As a result of it being established that one of Mr. Depp's attorneys had falsely accused Ms. Heard, she was awarded $2 million in punitive damages.

In the UK, Mr. Depp previously sued The Sun for libel after the newspaper referred to the actor as a wife-beater.

In that trial, he lost. In a separate lawsuit, a location manager for a movie claimed that the actor assaulted him and filed it in Los Angeles.

Amber Heard requests that the case be dismissed.

According to the New York Post, insiders indicated that Amber is "poor" since she must pay not only Depp for the duration of the trial, but also her legal team.

The jury's June 1 award to Depp of $10 million in compensatory damages and $5 million in punitive damages was deemed "excessive" and "indefensible" by Heard's legal team.

Heard wrote an opinion piece for The Washington Post in December 2018 referring to herself as "a public person," and Depp filed a libel lawsuit against her in Fairfax County Circuit Court.

The six-week trial that was shown on television evolved into a spectacle that provided a peek into their unhappy marriage.
