The Depp-Heard trial verdict isn’t surprising. What I saw in the courtroom sickened me
I reported on this trial for seven weeks, and I never got over the cruelty
It took the jury in the Johnny Depp v Amber Heard trial less than three days to reach a verdict.
They started on a Friday afternoon, broke on Memorial Day weekend
and returned on Tuesday May 31. By early afternoon the following day
they had made their determination and found that Heard defamed
her ex-husband in a 2018 op-ed written for
The Washington Post
In other words, Depp won the trial in the US that he lost in the UK
’s publishing company over a headline calling him a wife-beater.
I reported on this trial over the course of seven weeks. It took over my professional life, and many of my personal conversations.
