The actress, however, was left with the payment of $10.35 million to Johnny Depp due to the damages caused by his acts.
Before the trial ended, Heard’s insurance company, the New York Navy backed off. The insurance company filed a claim in court that they were not required to pay for the losses. amber heard would incur post-trial since she did not choose the firm that New York Marine agreed to. After retiring from her, Amber Heard was represented by Pasich LLP.
Heard’s current legal agency counterclaimed New York Marine’s claim, stating that the company is trying not to pay Heard what it is legally owed. Statements filed in a 13-page counterclaim say:
“New York Marine sold Ms. Heard an insurance policy promising to defend and indemnify Ms. Heard against, among other things, lawsuits alleging that she defamed others. When Johnny Depp sued Ms. Heard for defamation, he promptly notified New York Marine and asked New York Marine to defend her.
The statement continued,
“While New York Marine promised to do so, it failed to provide the full and capable defense to which Ms. Heard was entitled, failed to pay the attorneys’ fees and costs it was required to pay for Ms. Heard’s defense, and acted in other ways that harmed Ms. Heard and her defense.”

Did the New York Navy take action against Amber Heard?
In the claim made by New York Marine, the statements say that Amber Heard intentionally defamed her ex-husband. Johnny Depp. Due to this reason (and the other is legal representation), the company feels that it does not owe Amber Heard any money.
In their counterclaim, Amber Heard’s team claims that the New York Marine had acted in bad faith against the actress. The depositions further say that before backing down, the company repeatedly asked Heard to reconsider the lawsuit, making her lawsuits even more difficult.
“He persisted in his position. . . despite Ms. Heard’s requests to reconsider.” This made it “impossible for Ms. Heard to fully accept this ‘defense’ led by the New York Marine without prejudicing her defense in the Depp lawsuit.”
A status conference meeting has been set for December 1, 2022 at which Judge Wu will be present along with both sides by phone.
