Jury to resume deliberations on dueling Johnny Depp, Amber Heard claims
Jurors considering opposing lawsuits brought by Johnny Depp and Amber Heard are set to meet
Tuesday to continue deliberating on whether either actor was defamed
and deserves millions of dollars in damages.
Depp, the 58-year-old "Pirates of the Caribbean" star, sued ex-wife Heard in Virginia for $50 million
and argued that she defamed him when she called herself
a public figure representing domestic abuse" in a newspaper opinion piece.
Heard, 36, countersued for $100 million, saying Depp smeared her when his lawyer called her accusations a "hoax."
The seven-person jury deliberated for about two hours Friday before adjourning for the U.S. Memorial Day holiday weekend.
Depp has denied hitting Heard or any woman and said she was the one who turned violent in their relationship.
