Depp’s attorneys documented the U.S. case in Fairfax County, Virginia, on the grounds that the Washington Post is printed there
Members of the jury considering contradicting claims brought by Johnny Depp and Amber Heard are set to meet Tuesday to keep thinking on whether either entertainer was maligned and merits a great many dollars in harms.
Depp, the 58-year-old “Privateers of the Caribbean” star, sued ex Heard in Virginia for $50 million and contended that she slandered him when she referred to herself as “a person of note addressing homegrown maltreatment” in a paper assessment piece.
Heard, 36, countersued for $100 million, saying Depp spread her when his legal counselor considered her allegations a “fabrication.”
The seven-man jury thought for around two hours Friday prior to concluding for the U.S. Remembrance Day occasion end of the week.
Depp has denied hitting Heard or any lady and said she was the person who turned fierce in their relationship.
At the focal point of the legitimate case is the December 2018 assessment piece by Heard in the Washington Post, in which she offered the expression about homegrown maltreatment. The article didn’t specify Depp by name, yet his attorney told attendants plainly Heard was alluding to him.
Heard’s lawyers contended that she had come clean and that her remarks were covered as free discourse under the U.S. Constitution’s First Amendment.
Depp and Heard met in 2011 while recording “The Rum Diary” and marry in February 2015. Their separation was concluded around two years after the fact.
More than about a month and a half of procedures, hearers paid attention to accounts of two or three’s battles and saw realistic photographs of Depp’s ridiculous finger. He said the highest point of the finger was cut off when Heard tossed a vodka bottle at him in 2015.
Declaration was livestreamed generally via online entertainment, attracting enormous crowds to hear insights concerning the couple’s pained relationship.
Once among Hollywood’s greatest stars, Depp said Heard’s claims set him back “everything.” A new “Privateers” film was required to be postponed, and Depp was supplanted in the “Fabulous Beasts” film establishment, a “Harry Potter” side project.
Depp lost a slander case under quite a while back against the Sun, a British newspaper that named him a “tank top.” A London High Court judge decided that he had more than once attacked Heard.
Depp’s legal advisors documented the U.S. case in Fairfax County, Virginia, in light of the fact that the Washington Post is printed there. The paper isn’t a litigant.
