• On Good Things Utah this morning – After three days of deliberation, a verdict in Johnny Depp and Amber Heard’s contentious defamation trial has been reached. The jury sorted through six weeks of testimony, including testimonies from both of the embattled actors whose relationship history is at the center of the trial. Depp sued Heard for $50 million over an op-ed she wrote for the Washington Post in 2018, in which she identified as a “public figure representing domestic abuse.” While Depp is not named in the op-ed, Depp’s legal team argued in the initial complaint that the article is a “clear implication that Mr. Depp is a domestic abuser.” Depp denied all allegations of abuse. Heard’s legal team countersued for $100 million, saying Depp and his legal team defamed her by launching a “smear campaign” and devaluing her allegations of domestic abuse.
