The jurors made a decision in the Johnny Depp vs. Amber Heard case. The court in Virginia is expected to announce it at 9 p.m. Polish time.
The civil trial began in the first half of April and lasted over six weeks. Last Friday both sides made closing speeches.
Before 8 p.m. Polish time, Reuters announced that the jurors had made a decision in the case both by Depp and Heard’s counter-suit. The decision is expected to be announced at 3 p.m. EST (9 p.m. CEST).
Johnny Depp sued Amber Heard for defamation for a column that appeared in the Washington Post in 2018. His ex-partner then wrote that she had been a victim of domestic violence in the past and that her partner had abused her both physically and mentally. Depp’s name was not mentioned in the article, but the actor and his defense said that he clearly indicated him as the attacker. They accused Amber Heard of defamation and demanded $ 50 million in damages from her.
In response, the actress filed her own lawsuit, demanding $ 100 million from Depp and accusing his defense of wrongly labeling her a “fraud”.
