Exactly! I wondered how she would be able to pull off an appeal just based on the cash outlay?

I'm thinking that someone may give Amber the money but
there is also this I found on youtube.


There was a video that I watched and in the comments sections this was posted

"We had a huge discussion yesterday on Twitter with various lawyers, including ones who practice in VA, trying to get to the bottom of the appeal bond issue.

After much reading of statutes and case law, we think the set up is this...

There are two separate things, the appeal bond, and the judgement bond.

If you just want to appeal, you put up $500 (the appeal bond).

However an appeal does not create a 'stay' (that is to say all legal proceedings are put on hold) so JD can still seek to enforce the judgement through the various options (garnishing, 3rd party recovery orders etc) even whilst AH is appealing.

So if AH wishes to stop the judgement being enforced pending any appeal, she would have to pay the judgment amount into court; and also add the interest as it accrues (the judgment bond)

That money is held on escrow. If AH is successful on appeal she gets it back. If AH loses the appeal the court hands the money over to JD.

The bond is the full amount of the judgment i.e $10.3m. In VA you can't set-off the amount by discounting any sums you may be owed from a counter judgement.

Hope that clarifies things a bit."

To be clear, Amber wasn't banned from GoFundMe. They're fake GoFundMes that were shut down.
I understand why Amber wasn't banned from GoFuneMe. I just didn't know how to post the bottom tweet without posting the tweet at the top. I was only interested in posting the information at the bottom which was Adam Waldman's comment with the Australia Flag that he posted when someone asked him were was he and he posted the Australia flag because he is in Australia right now. . :lol: I understand that the GoFundMe account was shut down because it was started without Amber Heard's approval and also without Amber's legal team's approval. Thank you

Edited to Add: That you-tuber that made that video, I just wished that he didn't make just clickbait titles for his video. :frown:

They originally wanted like 86000 or something like that. They wanted him to pay the costs for them having to produce documents for discovery in the trial. The Judge gave them much less, saying they got a Cadallac when they could have bought a Ford. LOL In other words they didn't have to hire such fancy attorney's that charged them way too much for a simple discovery motion.

As Emily said, way worth it for Johnny because if they hadn't sought the documents and testimony, the whole Pledged vs Donated wouldn't have come up. They wouldn't have known about Musk donating in her name and also that the ACLU placed the Op-Ed in the first place as they were using her as a "spokesperson." Which all turned out to be very important at the trial.

Oh yeah I heard about how they at first wanted 86,000 dollars. so true about what Emily said.
