Johnny Depp vs Amber Heard trial: possible scenarios once the jury gives its verdict

The world has watched for weeks as the ugly relationship between the Hollywood former married couple has been played out ahead of their fate being decided.

The defamation trial between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard has grabbed public attention

for almost two months and could provide a valuable precedent for victims of domestic abuse.

On Friday 27 May, lawyers for both parties made their closing arguments, appealing to the jury to find in their client favour.

The judge then sent away the members of the jurors to deliberate

but that would quickly be interrupted with a three-day recess for the Memorial Day holiday weekend

with them returning to continue on Tuesday 31 May.

It is unclear exactly how long this process will take,

possible just a few hours, or it could be that we don’t have a verdict until later in the week.
