BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) — Following a six-week long trial, a verdict was reached in the defamation case between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard.
Originally, Depp sued Amber Heard for $50 million for defamation over her 2018 op-ed, in addition to her claims that he was physically violent with her. Amber Heard then counter-sued Depp for $100 million and claimed she was only ever violent against Depp in self-defense.
After three days of deliberations, the jury found Amber Heard liable for defamation against Johnny Depp, awarding $15 million in damages. For Heard’s counter suit, the jury awarded her $2 million in damages.
