In order to appeal the decision in the well-known case, Amber has now fired the attorneys who defended her during the trial and hired a new team.

According to Amber’s spokeswoman, the actor has retained Ballard Spahr’s David L. Axelrod and Jay Ward Brown as principal attorneys, with Ben Rottenborn remaining as co-counsel. Amber’s lawyer in the defamation action, Elaine Bredehoft will be leaving her position.
A representative issued the following statement, “When it comes to protecting the fundamental right of Freedom of Speech. We look at the jury’s decision — to paraphrase a famous quote — not ‘as the beginning of the end, but merely the end of the beginning.’ A different court warrants different representation, particularly as so much new evidence is now coming to light.”
