What happens if Johnny Depp loses the trial against Amber Heard?
The high-profile trial ended on Friday and jurors are now given time to deliberate.
Depp could face a counter suit if the jury dismisses his lawsuit.
The jurors in the civil case between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard are currently on a three-day recess
for the Memorial Day holiday weekend, but are
expected to resume their deliberations on Tuesday.
The trial has gripped public attention and could prove a significant precedent for domestic abuse victims.
It could be a few more days until the jury return a final verdict, but what could it mean for Depp if his defamation lawsuit is rejected?
Depp will not receive the lucrative pay-out
In suing Heard,
Depp is demanding a payment of $50 million for loss of earnings
due to an article his ex-wife authored in The Washington Post in 2018.
