Johnny Depp verdict - live: Actor ‘humbled’ by court win as Amber Heard says case ‘setback’ for women

The jury in the defamation trial opposing Johnny Depp and Amber Heard reached a verdict

on the third day of deliberations, handing a victory to Depp and a partial win to Heard.

Depp sued Heard for $50m for implying he abused her in a 2018 Washington Post op-ed.

Although she didn’t name him, he claims her allegations impacted

his ability to work. She pursued a $100m counterclaim.

The jury found that Heard defamed Depp on all three counts and awarded

him $10m in compensatory damages and $5m in punitive damages.

Heard was awarded $2m in compensatory damages, but no punitive damages.

In closing arguments, Depp’s lawyers asked jurors to “give him his life back” after it was “ruined” by Heard’s domestic abuse allegations.
