The Depp-Heard trial

The Depp Heard controversy did not end with that civil divorce settlement as in the February of  2019, Johnny Depp sued his ex-wife Amber Heard for defamation through a piece in The Washington Post in December 2018. The lawsuit was against three defamatory statements; First was the headline that said "Amber Heard: I spoke up against sexual violence — and faced our culture's wrath. That has to change"; the second was Heard's statement: "Then two years ago, I became a public figure representing domestic abuse, and I felt the full force of our culture's wrath for women who speak out"; and third, was "I had the rare vantage point of seeing, in real-time, how institutions protect men accused of abuse." Depp in fact claimed Amber was the abuser in the relationship however her false claims led to a serious decline in his career. 

The Depp-Heard trial

The famous Depp-Heard trial began on April 11, 2022, and ended on June 1, 2022. It was held in Fairfax County, Virginia. The final verdict said all three statements by Heard were untrue that was meant to defame Depp. Depp was rewarded $10 million in compensatory damages and $5 million which were reduced to $350,000 in punitive damages from ex-wife Amber Heard. Also, in the counter-suit, Heard was awarded $2 million in compensatory damages and no in punitive damages from Depp. At the end of the trial, Depp reacted by saying "jury gave me my life back. I am truly humbled." He added he was "overwhelmed by the outpouring of love and the colossal support and kindness from around the world. I hope that my quest to have the truth be told will have helped others, men or women, who have found themselves in my situation, and that those supporting them never give up."

Depp also went ahead and applauded, "the noble work of the Judge, the jurors, the court staff, and the Sheriffs who have sacrificed their own time to get to this point", and talked highly about his "diligent and unwavering legal team" for their "extraordinary job".

Other legal issues
