American actress Amber Heard is seeking a new defamation trial against her ex-husband, Johnny Depp.

According to multiple sources, the 36-year-old actress filed the appeal earlier this month, contending that the last trial was unjust because therapy records in which she was described as being molested were excluded.

Judge Penney Azcarate of Fairfax County, Virginia, had previously dismissed the evidence as hearsay.

“This case also should never have gone to trial because another court had already concluded that Depp abused Heard on multiple occasions,” wrote Heard’s lawyers, in relations to the United Kingdom High Court of Justice’s ruling in a separate defamation suit brought by Depp that the actor was guilty of abusing his ex-wife.”
