The Final Verdict in the Johnny Depp vs Amber Heard Lawsuit
Mo’Nique and D.L Hughley in Contract Dispute
The trial for the lawsuit between Johnny Depp and actress Amber Heard has finally ended, and the verdict is a mixed bag for both parties. The Virginia trial ended in a hung jury, but Heard’s lawyer says that evidence was suppressed in both the U.K. case and the Virginia trial. It is not clear what will happen to Heard’s reputation.
The case has thrown the spotlight on the convicted rape and assault of Amber Heard, a woman who was a model in Hollywood. During her trial, Heard faced intense backlash from Depp fans, and the Daily Dot reported that she was subject to thousands of online harassment and death threats. A right-wing blog reportedly spent thousands of dollars on Facebook ads in an effort to discredit the actress.
The verdict is the result of the jury’s deliberations, which ended Wednesday. The jury sided with Depp after finding him guilty of defamation of character. While the jury found in Depp’s favor, the actress’ lawyer argues that the jury was prejudiced against her client because of her fame. As such, it is unclear whether Amber Heard will have to pay the judgment.
