With Amber Heard filing an appeal to the verdict in her recent anti-defamation lawsuit against Johnny Depp, another round of legal proceedings looks to be in the works. The high profile couple’s continued short appearances are the latest chapter in the history of the Depp/Heard relationship. While Depp’s team had already responded to the appeal, the former Pirates of the Caribbean star is now taken further action.
