As Johnny Depp works on his career following the libel trial between him and his ex-wife Amber Heard, the actress is doing everything to get the case reopened. But now her insurance suddenly refuses to pay.
Actors Johnny Depp and Amber Heard’s legal mud battle lasted six weeks – six weeks full of scandals, embarrassing disclosures and public embarrassment. While the “Pirates of the Caribbean” star seems to have concluded the verdict and is working on his career, his ex is in a deep crisis.
Amber Heard, who announced an appeal immediately after the jury’s decision, is doing everything to overturn the verdict in the defamation trial: the wrong jury is said to have sat in the courtroom and the verdict was invalid due to a lack of evidence. But so far it has fallen on deaf ears – and worse is to come for them.
Not only is Amber Heard being investigated for perjury – no: according to tmz.com, even her insurance company is said to be letting her down. Actually, the actress had demanded that the company bear part of the costs that the judgment entails. But New York Marine and General Insurance Co. stands in the way. Background: The “malicious and intentional” behavior of the convicts.
The $1 million liability insurance covers all forms of unlawful conduct, including perjury, on the part of the actress. But there is a catch!
Governing law for the insurance policy is governed by California law. For example, an insurance company does not have to be liable if the insured has committed unlawful, “willful” misconduct. According to the company, the jury also found that the defamation was not only intentional, but also “malicious”.
The jury awarded Johnny Depp $15 million in damages, part of which Amber Heard is claiming from her insurance company. However, nothing will come of it.
