Here’s all you need to know about Johnny Depp and Amber Heard’s trial
Last year, Johnny Depp and his ex-wife Amber Heard spent almost a month in Virginia’s court tearing each other apart. The jury’s verdict was in favor of Depp and it was concluded that Heard defamed him when she described herself in a 2018 Washington Post op-Ed as “a public figure representing domestic abuse” who “felt the full force of our culture’s wrath for women who speak out.”
At the end of the trial, the jury awarded $10 million to Depp in compensatory damages and $5 million in punitive damages, but the judge reduced the punitive damages award to $350,000. On the other hand, Amber walked away with $2 million in compensatory damages.
