“She has some excellent grounds for it. She was demonized here. A number of things were allowed in this court that should not have been allowed, and it caused the jury to be confused. The damages are completely skewed. There are no damages. It stopped on November 2, 2020, which is when the judgment came down in the UK. [Can she pay the damages?] Oh no. Absolutely not. Really what happened here is a tale of two trials. It’s a horrible message. As I said, it’s a setback. It’s a significant setback because that’s exactly what it means. Unless you pull out your phone and you video your spouse or your significant another beating you, effectively you won’t be believed.”
