Ben Chu, a lawyer for American actor Johnny Depp, said on Good Morning America that his client might not recover 10.4 million won in court from ex-wife Amber Heard.
“Obviously, we cannot disclose the details of the interaction between a lawyer and a client, but as Mr. Depp argued in court, this (claim and lawsuit) was never a matter of money. Instead, it was a matter of restoring reputation. And he did it,” said the Chu.
According to the lawyer, the past lawsuit ended in a “complete victory” for the actor.
Previously, Camilla Vasquez, Johnny Depp’s other attorney in the Amber Heard trial, was appointed as a partner at Brown Rudnick law firm.
On June 2, a jury found Johnny Depp’s ex-wife Amber Heard guilty of defamation of the actor and ordered her to pay $15 million in compensation in the case to protect his honor and dignity. At the same time, the jury ruled that the actor also made false accusations against his ex-wife. As a result, heard was awarded $2 million in damages. The high-profile lawsuit, delayed due to the pandemic, lasted seven weeks.
