Johnny Depp Awarded A Total Of $15 Million In Case Against Amber Heard

1362

On Wednesday, actor Johnny Depp was awarded $15 million in damages, after a jury found actor Amber Heard had defamed her ex-husband.

Depp’s defamation suit revolves around a 2018 Washington Post article that was written by Heard, in which she claimed domestic violence. Heard had countersued Depp for $100 million.

Depp was not physically present for the verdict reading.

In response to the verdict, Heard tweeted a message that said in part, “I believe Johnny’s attorneys succeeded in getting the jury to overlook the key issue of Freedom of Speech and ignore evidence that was so conclusive that we won in the UK.”
