Attorneys representing the “Aquaman” actress have filed a motion to challenge the verdict in Depp’s favor and the damages awarded to him — saying his career was “ruined” before the publication of Heard’s December 2018 article in which she described herself as a victim of domestic violence. but she didn’t name her famous ex.

The motion, filed by her lawyers — and obtained by — claims that “there is no evidence of damage to Mr. Depp’s reputation caused by Ms. Heard’s Op-Ed.”

The documents further claimed that damage to Depp’s reputation came when Heard filed for a temporary domestic violence restraining order against him in May 2016 following their breakup.

The motion ed: “Mr. Depp testified that the damage to his reputation was caused by Ms. Heard obtaining a DVTRO (temporary domestic violence restraining order) on May 27, 2016 – for which he cannot be compensated.”

Heard’s lawyers stated: “Mr. Depp was asking the jury to compensate him for the actions that occurred on May 27, 2016,” ing that he “has no right” to the damages awarded to him by the jury.

The website says they concluded: “This is inappropriate and asks the court to overturn the verdict.”

After a six-week trial earlier this year, the 59-year-old actor was awarded $10 million in compensatory damages and $5 million in punitive damages, which a judge reduced to $350,000 due to the Virginia state cap, while Amber was awarded $2 million in damages for her counterclaim.
