Could Depp waive damages if Heard drops appeal?

Ahead of today’s final hearing in Fairfax, here’s a reminder of what Johnny Depp attorney Ben Chew told Good Morning America’s George Stephanopoulos when asked whether Depp might be willing to waive the damages awarded to him in exchange for Amber Heard foregoing an appeal against the trial verdict.

“We obviously can’t disclose attorney-client communications, but as Mr Depp testified, and as we both [Chew and fellow Depp lawyer Camille Vasquez] made clear in our respective closings, this was never about money for Mr Depp,” Chew said earlier this month. “This was about restoring his reputation, and he’s done that.”

Told by Stephanopoulos that his response made it sound like such a settlement “could be on the table”, Chew said: “Again, we have to be careful what we say, but this was about Mr Depp’s reputation. That was what it was about for him.”
