Mitry Lawyers’ Richard Mitry says Amber Heard’s options are either to pay the full amount ordered by the court to her ex-husband Johnny Depp, “go bankrupt” or appeal.
His remarks come after a Virginia judge denied the actress her bid for a retrial after Ms Heard’s legal team argued one of the jurors, juror 15, meant to serve in the trial was replaced by someone else.
“There’s talk about a potential appeal,” Mr Mitry told Sky News Australia.
“She might do that now that the retrial attempt has failed, that would be an appeal to a higher court to test what she would see were errors in the original hearing.
“Whether she does so or not, we’ll soon see.”
