Depp-Heard Defamation Case: It is time to celebrate by Depp fans as he won the defamion case against his ex-wife. Johnny Depp visits the wildlife rescue centre following his monumental win against Amber Heard.
Johnny Depp issued a statement shortly after the judgments in his 50 million dollars defamation case against his ex wife Amber Heard. “The jury gave me my life back,”he said.”Iam truly humbled.”
The two have been entangled in a six week trial, with Depp suing Heard for 50 million dollars for an op-ed she penned in “The Washington Post’ in 2018 and Heard countersuing him for 100 million dollars.
On June 2, the jury ruled in Depp’s favor, awarding him 10 million dollars in compensatory damages and five million dollars in punitive penalties. However, following the verdict, Depp,
who is currently in the United Kingdom and did not attend court on June 2, issued a statement in which he said:”Six years ago, my life, the lives of my children, the lives of
those closest to me and the lives of those who have supported and believed in me for
many, many years were forever changed.”
As per “The Independent’, on June 1, the jury determined that Heard had defamed Depp on all three counts and awarded him 10 million dollars in compensation and five million dollars in punitive damages. Heard’s lawsuit was deemed to be partially successful and she was given two million dollars in compensatory damages but no punitive penalties.
In final arguments recently, Depp’s life back after Heard’s domestic violence charges ruined it. She delivered the performance of her life on the stand, they argued and her claims were an act of deep cruelty to actual survivors.
