Heard won a small victory in her countersuit, which argued that Depp, through his lawyer adam waldman, smeared her by calling her abuse allegations a “hoax” in the press, implying that her friends had set up Depp. The jury agreed that the statements were defamatory and that Waldman was working as an agent for Depp when he made the statements, awarding Heard $2 million in compensatory damages. After the verdict, both sides announced plans to appeal.

On Wednesday, Depp’s team went ahead and officially took action to contest the damages awarded to Heard. Appearing before the Virginia Court of Appeals, the 59-year-old actor’s attorneys argued that he should not be responsible for comments made by his attorney.
