Johnny Depp Amber Heard Verdict - Libel Trial Stalled
The jury finished the 2nd day of deliberations Tuesday without reaching a verdict in the defamation claims of Johnny Depp & ex-wife Amber Heard over their volatile & unhappy marriage.
Jurors deliberated for 7 hours on Tuesday & will resume deliberations on Wednesday in Fairfax County Circuit Court. Judge Penney Azcarate is expected to read the verdict when it is reached.
Johnny Depp is suing Heard for $50 million, accusing her of libeling him with a 2018 op-ed she wrote describing herself as "a public figure representing domestic abuse."
Heard filed a $100 million counterclaim against the "Pirates of the Caribbean" star after his lawyer called her allegations a hoax.
During their testimonies, Amber Heard testified that Depp assaulted her many times. Johnny Depp also testified that he never hit Heard & that she was the one who physically attacked him many times.
During closing arguments, both sides told the jury that a verdict in their favor would give their clients their lives back.
