VERDICT REACHED, READ AT 3PM ET: Johnny Depp v Amber Heard Defamation Trial

  • LIVE COVERAGE: Johnny Depp v Amber Heard Defamation Trial & Verdict Watch
    Actor Johnny Depp is suing ex-wife Amber Heard for $50 million for defamation in connection with Heard’s 2018 Washington Post op-ed, in which she spoke out about being the victim of domestic violence. Heard’s article did not specifically name Depp as her alleged abuser, but according to Depp’s lawsuit, it relied “on the central premise that Ms. Heard was a domestic abuse victim and that Mr. Depp perpetrated domestic violence against her.” Amber Heard is counter-suing Depp for $100 million.
    The defamation trial began Monday in Fairfax County Circuit Court in Virginia, with jury selection completing on the same day. There is a possibility of celebrity witnesses testifying, including James Franco and Elon Musk. Tune in to the Law&Crime Network for daily coverage of this high-profile trial.

    You should never try to destroy someone's reputation with a lie when your reputation can be destroyed with the truth

    The fact the Johnny is not in the court because his ultimate goal is to simply tell the truth. His like, 'I'm done, up to the jury now." I'm so amazed. Team Johnny forever!!!

    Amber will always play the victim, and sadly I think she's learned nothing by Mr Depp winning this shocking case. But we all now see just how evil people can be when they have it in for someone. Thank God Johnny Depp survived this attack.

    Anyone else who is going to miss watching this amazing legal team do it’s job? Congratulations to team Depp, justice was served. Am I the only one who nearly cried when JD won?


    She not only defamed him, she tried to frame him. Shame on her.

    She not only lost but the whole world heard how the jury ruled her behavior as malicious. They thought she plotted to ruin him. I know the men are attracted to her, but after this I think she'll have trouble hooking big game like Depp and Musk. And imo her acting career is done. The words out, shes toxic.

  • Jane Giesbrecht

    The female attorney, Camille Vasquez representing Johnny Depp was superb. Totally on top of the game. I applaud her.

    Props to Dior for keeping in touch with Depp! They didn’t let anybody influence their decisions

    I have so many people in my life that did not get justice against their abusers. I am so happy that at least this 1 woman has been held responsible, and that sometimes, justice does prevail.

    Makes you wonder how many lives the UK judge/court system has ruined, given that this verdict is opposite to the verdict in UK, with consistent evidence to support it. Had it not been for Johnny's financial resources, he would not have had the opportunity to win back his reputation/life.

    Justice prevailed for Johnny today. It was never about the money for Johnny, he just wanted the truth out. Thank god the jury saw the truth. I hope Johnny begins a new chapter in his life and has a great future. Johnny Depp definitely deserves it. 💜💜

    As a Norwegian, I’m ashamed of Norway’s state owned news channel; NRK, which decided to announce how «crushed» Heard felt by the verdict, as the headline.

  • Matrix Navigator

    I know some people were disappointed or that it was rude or disrespectful of him to not be there for the verdict, but I think it was a smart move and even courteous because that place would have been a madhouse with all of his fans who would want to be present.

  • David Lewis

    I would like to thank the Law and Crime Network for live streaming the whole trial and I am over the moon that Johnny won and it just shows that there is Justice for those wrongly publicly shamed. I would like to say that thanks to this trial and johnnys win Ambers acting career is over

    During the verdict, for the first time, I see what REAL sadness, disappointment and anger looks like on Amber's face. I am convinced that she was really really emotional at that moment. If she acted like this during the trial, she probably could have won. Fact is, not only she is a liar and she is a really bad actress too.

    One of the best things about dude is that he never takes credit for himself when he achieves something. He always respect us, the audience, and his team, and he is always polite in all of his videos

  • Povilas Micevicius

    Congrats Johnny and his phenomenal legal team! This victory goes way beyond the case! Today I’m raising a MEGA pint for you guys!🍷

  • iron threads3

    The way she marches out at the end. Everything in this trial she got wrong, what a complete trainwreck.
