As the legal team of Amber Heard prepared for appealing once again against Johnny Depp, the ex-lawyer of the Aquaman actress believed it is the right time for her to move ahead in her career. The legal team of Amber Heard said in a statement that “new evidence” revealed might help them to win the case against Johnny Depp. 

“When it comes to protecting the fundamental right of Freedom of Speech, we look at the jury’s decision – to paraphrase a famous quote – not ‘as the beginning of the end, but merely the end of the beginning.’ A different court warrants different representation, particularly as so much new evidence is now coming to light.”
