    Johnny Depp and his attorneys shocked many legal experts by winning his US defamation trial against ex-wife Amber Heard after having previously lost a similar libel case in the UK. After 23 days of testimony and less than three days of deliberation, a jury ruled in favor of all three of Depp's claims against Heard, finding that she had falsely and willfully accused him of domestic abuse with the intention of damaging his reputation. In 2020, Depp lost a libel case in the UK, after the actor had sued The Sun, a British tabloid, for calling him a 'wife beater.' In that case, a judge concluded that much of the domestic abuse that Heard alleged had, in fact, occurred.  That is why Depp's victory in the US legal system, which sets a higher bar for proving libel of a public figure, came as a surprise to some legal analysts.  It is traditionally easier to win a libel lawsuit in the UK because in that legal system the defendant has to prove the truth of their allegedly defamatory statements, whereas in the US,...

    Social media hawks following the Depp vs. Heard trial have ridiculed Amber Heard's failed attempt at poetic justice after noticing the Aquaman star wore her infamous 'funeral dress' at the courtroom yesterday.  The same plain black dress was worn by Heard when she filed her restraining order against Johnny Depp in LA as their marriage crumbled in 2016, then again in London in 2020 while attending court for the defamation case between Depp and British newspaper The Sun.  Heard herself even posted snaps of the outfit from both events on social media in March 2021 as the Pirates of the Caribbean actor lost his bid to appeal the court's ruling in favour of The Sun, in what many saw as a snide dig at her former husband. 'One dress, four years apart. Sometimes it's important to wear the same thing twice,' the 36-year-old wrote. Eagle-eyed Twitter users ripped into Heard last night, having spotted she was clad yet again in the same somber outfit as she left the courtroom after learning she will be forced to pay $8.35million in damages...
    The judge presiding over the defamation trial between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard announced that Heard must pay her former spouse $15 million combined for compensatory and punitive damages for libel. The jury ruled in Depp’s favor on Wednesday, with Heard being found guilty on all counts in connection with the defamation case he filed against her. After Judge Penney Azcarate read through the jury’s response to the core questions surrounding the trial, she announced that the jury awarded Depp $10 million in compensatory damages to be paid by Heard, plus another $5 million in punitive damages. As MSNBC anchor and legal contributor Katie Phang noted, there is a statutory cap on punitive damages that will result in that $5 million award being reduced to $350,000. In Virginia, there is a statutory cap on punitive damages in the amount of $350,000. So that $5 million punitive damages award against Heard is reduced by the court. — Katie S. Phang (@KatiePhang) June 1, 2022 The proceeding also addressed Heard’s defamation counterclaims against Depp, and the jury determined that among the...
    Johnny Depp's snickering and seemingly irreverent behavior in court could potentially jeopardize his $50million defamation trial against ex-wife Amber Heard, according to legal analysts. The Pirates of the Caribbean star has won the hearts of supporters and fans on social media who seem to have been charmed by his tongue-in-cheek remarks and conduct throughout the high-profile trial.  But legal experts warn that Depp's 'smartass' comments – including joking about his drinking – could make him look 'unsympathetic' to those who will actually be deciding his fate: the jury.  The actor's laughing and joking during Heard's testimony could make him less 'likable', two top defamation lawyers in Virginia, where the case is being held, told DailyMail.com.  They also predicted that both sides could potentially lose their cases because neither has met the standard for defamation yet.  Legal experts say Johnny Depp is potentially jeopardizing his $100million defamation trial against ex-wife Amber Heard with his conduct in court Depp's tongue-in-cheek remarks and fits of laughter could be off-putting and paint him as 'unlikable' or 'unsympathetic' to a jury, lawyers told DailyMail.com.
