According to the AP, Fairfax County Circuit Court Judge Penney Azcarate put a judgment order into the court record following a brief hearing. On Amber’s counterclaim that one of Johnny’s lawyers defamed her, the jury awarded her $2 million.
If Amber decides to appeal her $10.35 million jury award on Friday, the court indicated she will be required to post a bond for the entire amount while her appeal is pending, according to reports. Both awards are subject to a 6% interest rate per year, according to the judge’s order. As previously decided by the jury, the punitive damages award was lowered to $350,000 by the judge due to the state cap on punitive damages.

Absolutely not.”. They were trying to demonize her. As a result, the jury was left perplexed and dissatisfied by the rulings made in this case. There was no way for us to inform them of the UK ruling… Nobody was harmed in this incident.
