For several weeks, Amber Heard has been at the center of attention as she faced justice. Her trial, against her ex-husband Johnny Depp, was highly publicized and the actress had to face numerous criticisms from Internet users. The verdict was rendered on June 1 and it was pronounced in favor of the interpreter of Jack Sparrow. Amber Heard was found guilty of defamation with malicious intent against Johnny Depp and damages to the tune of $15 million. A few weeks later, she has to face a new blow since her insurance company does not want to help her, as revealed by the Daily Mail on July 9. The media explains that she had subscribed to a civil liability insurance of one million dollars with the New York Marine and General Insurance Company so that it “settles part of the damage”, it is specified. However, California law indicates that she is free to refuse payment in the event that Amber Heard has committed a “fault qualified as willful and malicious”. A refusal to pay that does not go unnoticed.

Amber Heard continues the hard blows. On her Twitter account a few weeks ago, the young woman said she was “devastated that the mountain of evidence was not enough to deal with the much greater power, influence and ascendancy of her ex-husband.” Today, she must manage to pay the large sum she owes to Johnny Depp since she cannot count on her insurance company. In addition, on July 8, the actress’ lawyers delivered a second document to request a new trial in Northern Virginia. According to their comments, two people with the same last name as their client were present on the jury during her trial against Johnny Depp. A summons was reportedly sent to a 77-year-old, but it was a 52-year-old man who appeared in court and served on the jury. “It is deeply disturbing that someone not called to jury duty would nevertheless show up and serve on a jury, especially in a case like this,” they wrote in a document. The lawyers have made a request for a new defamation lawsuit, but will it be accepted?

Amber Heard: why did she feel humiliated during the trial?

The trial between Amber Heard and Johnny Depp has been highly publicized and commented on social networks. In an interview with Today Show on June 13, the actress revealed that she felt very humiliated. “The majority of this trial took place on social networks”, she had initially lamented before adding: “Every day, I passed in front of three, four, sometimes six blocks of people waving signs saying I was a witch and wishing me dead”. In addition, she also had to face the fans of Johnny Depp, who were waiting for her at the exit of the court. “I find myself in front of a group of Jack Sparrow fans. It was the most humiliating moment I have experienced in my entire life”, she said before specifying: “I have never felt so dispossessed of my humanity. I felt less than human”.
